Malawi exams

JCE abolished.

Information Malawi24 has at hand indicates that the abolishment is part of reforms in the education sector.

Malawi leader has approved the abolishment of JCE following request from about 45 parastatals in the country.

According to the information Mutharika has also ordered Ministry of Education Science and Technology through Malawi Examination Board ( MANEB) to stop printing the Primary School Certificate Leaving Certificate (PSCLE).

“The development is also due to frequent calls have been there that the two exams have failed in its quality and remain useless.” a source privy to Malawi24 believes.

Education sector is further experiencing a fall out of quality of Malawi School Certificate of Education ( MSCE ).

  16. Welcome development…some of us will criticise simply bcoz we r malawians who think that criticising is wisdom, who criticise bcoz a neighbour has done so,,,,who take everything coming from leaders as poison….who criticise without proper grounds,,,, atleast the wise people at capital hill have valid reasons for doing this…#poor_malawians!!!!

  17. Big up Mr prezdent, I don’t see the reason ov hvng Jce. Those who r claiming that Jce is working in other countries they r talking ov old days ov Kamuzu nt now. Bravo Mr prezdent for that idea, even there in Malawi these dyz pple r nt employed bcz ov Jce certificate bt Msce. Don’t think that when u got that Jce certificate u can wrk here in S.A, never bcz here they got Matric which varies wth Msce. Lets open eyes Malawians

  18. mine iz da question; does this was their part of their campaign bid of 2014 to rule Malawi. pple vote 4 another: but politicians always do the opposite.

  19. hahahaha though jce imaoneka ngat yopanda mphavu but it still had a hidden significance……..its akward,,,,,only one national exam? hahahahahha anthu msce adxibwereza kangati kayaaa????

  20. Compromised minds of pipo, MSCE is just valid in Malawi but JCE is worldly reconised so if removd then Malawi will go where?? Enafe ku SA tiliku timaonetsa JCE yomweyo az our kolifikeshon tsono mukufuna ana athu azaonetsa chani?????? Thus too bad , bad at its best…. Malawi is dying zonadi…

  22. If jce is useless why has it been registering low pass rate? I think this change is for monetary issue but expect worse results at msce

  23. Walongozgi wachekulu na wambula mino panji kuti wa ntchende mumulomo ndimo wachitila nthena tavionelerapo ise wapumule wangakomeskaso waka wanthu ngati ntchiponde chamkulu wake

  26. Even in employment, at a certain point in time, employees are appraised for their performance. The dead wood are disciplined accordingly. You can not just be working year in, year out. In its reform program, govt will be appraising civil servants as well. It would be total madness to let learners just cruise from form 1 to 4 without anywhere to test them. I can foresee disaster at msce. Govt must think twice here. Koma poti ndilo samva, tiyeni nazo.

  27. anthu amene amapemphawo,inuyo a bwana..nonse nzeru mulibe.,J.c.e ndi first step yamayexo ndipo ndnthaw yomwe munthu mantha amayeso amayamba kuchoka

  28. Mmmm ayi inu…am i not dreaming? Mmmmmmmhhhh plz mr apm… Chonde tilekeni..ndimareform anuwa akutimvetsa kutentha kuno.. Mukufuna tiyambe kuyenda?

  30. I think the government would provide free computer in schools from grade 10 so that Malawi future should be brighten up.Fuck junior certificate because ngoku aisebenze.

  31. amene munachivotera ichi nonse ndinu mbuzi pompano chibwera 666 muzingoti big up Apm kuyambira kenyatta,mbendera kuphatikiza onse makofi okhaokha

  32. Aprofessor deforestation kusowa mtengo wogwira mwayambano kuthothola masamba hummmm,jce ndi tsamba la mphawi nde mwaganiza kuti mupheletu mphawiyu ganizani bwino???????……..?????

  33. Greatest move ever. Who needs JCe now. Olo Ku army or g4s anasiya kulemba. Anthi a msce akugulitsa samusa Ku kips APA nde wa JC atani? Tisa mango limb I kira zinthu zopanda phindu APA. Kuzolowera ndale basi.

  34. Koma #MSCE pazikhara kulephera coz ambri akapanda kukhonza bwino jce amalimbikilano mmmh apa bora akanacotsa ya 8 azngosakhidwa nt azilandra satifketi

  35. That’s a welcm dvlopment Dr Muthalika, coz this will obviously help to save money of the Gvt, just make sure that there should b no progression to another class for any student who fails the last terminal exams, the final terminal exams in secondary xools should work just as we do in primary xools, that’s my point

  36. Kodi inu amaena mwapasidwa mwawi wosintha zithu mumaganizadi koma?sukulu kale mayeso a boma mwana amayambira kulemba standard five ,kenako amakalemba astandard 8 ,JCE,MSCE kenako ngati pali mwawi wa ku University amapitiriza kumapita mtsogolo ,zotsatira zake timaona mwana wa standard 8 akutha kulemba ngakhale kuyankhula chizungu mosavuta.Lero za chisoni munthu wa form four akulephera kulemba ngakhalenso kuyankhula chizungu.
    Ndiye pakhalanso nzeru apa mwana aziyesedwa kamodzi after 12 or over years??????????

  37. Nkhani yaikulu ndi fundrasing akuganizakuti zomwe amapangila mayeso a 2 zikweza chuma cha boma which z not true they must think 2c b4 & i said must.c

  38. Anthu amat form1 ndi form3 timangodutsa ndikuona ngat sibwino,koma mwana atalephera end of term3 terminal test azibwerenza ngat zili xul zaboma azichotsedwa ngat kuli kubwerenza azipta ku private school…zimenez zipangitsa kut anthu azilimbikra xul…take my wordz Mr president…big up bwana APM!!!

  39. You knw what guyz JCE is not the same with MSCE .JCE is ajunior certifica not malawian certificate you use even other country that z a jnr certfcte

  40. ok…well i would like to see the move to abolish JCE as a slightly unwise move here although to some extent its kinda bright in terms of saving resources since our JCE paper is no longer that functional…however looking at it from a bright side side both JCE and PSLC are necessary (1) they serve to provide a check of who among students qualifies to further to the next class, the are educational sieves. (2) they provide check whether a student has undergo all stages to attain a certain job or oppotunity. (3) at far most is the important check these certificates provide…work again fraud activities…recently with the technological changes people can forge certificates in their homes…but for example if your applying for a post which requires a degree…the institution to which you apply to will ask for ur other certificates of MSCE, JCE and PSLC which will serve as references. the organisation could contact the schools where u obtain ur certificates than just having one certificate which is easy to forge. Thank You

  41. How can we expect quality education in our country, If Special Education Needs are not there in our schools? If our teachers are ill treated in terms of salaries and allowances? Don’t you know that , these are the contributing factors to Poor Quality Education .

    • I Sincerely Concur Wt U. The Most Undermined Group Of Civil Servants Here In Mw Is Dt Ov Teachers I Dnt Knw Y. Teachrs Play A Vital Role In Grooming 2mrrw’s Leaders If Nt 2dy’s Leaders.

  42. Thats a blue lie you are disseminating false information Malawi 24.Our quality of education is far much behind to abolish JCE.Sizingatheke kuti school izithera form six there is already an acute shortage of secondary school teachers and most CDSS amachita kubwelekera aphunzitsi aku primary.Even maiko olemera kuposa ife they didnt abolish JCE.Tili kutali ngati tikukanika kupanga handle ma sec.xuls then can we manage high schools?

  43. U know this MG 1 he was failed to contro minester of Education that time of his brother now do u think he can run nicely the malawi as a country mmm lacky of knoledge +no any Experiance to run gorvernment body zonse ndi anebawa

  44. There’s no logic to abolish it. Why,what,which, and how? Feeble. Soft in the head. I believe now that in a garden of Psychology we say that: we are all mad,we only differ in degrees of abnormality. Check the IQ of that man who abolish JCE. Where is he from? The quality of education will not be there even if he can abolish it in Malawi. Unless if Malawi will have government nursery schools thats all. Trust you me.

  45. Jce panali ngati pachipata posefera Ana to find out Ana omwe akutenerakupita patsogolo kukayamba msce level komaso izi zipangitsa Ana kukhala reluctant coz zaka 4 mwana,osapangidwa assess mayeso kukawapezavpa form 4 hmmmmm

  46. Oooooh,what is this JCE was part of the assessment to find out students who are errigible to compete in senior classes Eg form3 and. 4.now you mean mwana aziphuzira 4years in secondary schools without any assessment?

  47. apa boma zawavuta jce kunali kotengera mphavu pokalemba mayeso a msce kodi mwatani mukungosintha chilichonse? yaa koma ndiye tikuvadi kuwawa.

  48. I appreciate de descion he has made,kofunika Achotsed JCE ilibe phindu,bola tsopano kuyambira form 1 paka form 4 mwana akalephera terminal test asamapite class ina azibweleza..Big up Bwana President!

    • Kumeneku kupangitsa kut anthu azilimbikra xul osat form1 kungodutsa ngatiso form3,koma munthu akalephera terminal test ya end of term 3 _zibwereza ngakhalenso kuwachotseratu xul ndizabwino….koma atalephera kukhoza terminal test ya xul yaboma azichotsedwa….mwina azikabwerezera kuprivate xuls

  49. KODI KACHASOYU MUKUMAMWA BWANJI INU,you have raised fees for government schools,usaid u want to improve Education standards,TODAY you are abolishing JCE, SO IS THERE ANY QUALITY OF EDUCATION,???? LEAVE MALAWI AS IT WAS BEFORE YOU,AMABUNGWE GWIRANIPONI NTCHITO APA,UKU NDE KUBA UKU,koma kubomako mukakhala mmaganiza?????

  50. Who do these morons consult with in the first place? Akatero adziima pachulu kuti apanga chitukuko because that’s the best they think they know best “reforms”. Is there an alternative?

  51. Few can concetrate, for 4yrs without being tested,and M S C E was the maxmum, for most poor Malawians who cannot prolong or afford to pay for the course.

  52. poor reasoning. Do u kno d@ JCE is more valid than MSCE?hw? JCE is worldwide recognised while MSCE z only valid in malawi bkoz it stats with aword Malawi .Ukan Go anywhere n’ b given achance to work based ön ur JCE paper but no country wil validate u wit an MSCE paper,its amalawi only paper.

  53. So what measures have been put in place to make sure that students reach form 4 with Great Effort of passing exams with good points besides their hard working? Osati bola amaliza form 4 but ought to be well baked college material.

  54. Mr president mukufuna kutiuza kuti kuchoka standard 1 ana azilemba mayeso a form 4????tiziona bwanji perfomance ya ana???pa 14 yrs kulemba mayeso kamodzi,mukufuna kuti ana aleke kuphunzira???? Komaso izi zipangitsa certifcate ya form 4 kukhala yopanda Ntchito thnk twice muthalika

  55. then they must add 2 more classes after form 4 to improve the quality standard of our education,i thnk its a gud idea to abolish jce, its been useless for a while

  56. “DEAR Heavenly Father, give us the strength and wisdom we need to face tomorrow. Let us be strong, courageous soldiers for You. God, You know and we know that we can do nothing without You. Let the Holy Spirit guide us in what we do and what we say. Touch our minds. Touch our hearts. Bless our hands,AMEN”

  57. poor reason by de so cod mr bwa, coz jce was dea eliminate amene sanalimbikire den our msce ll replace jce, kod tikhala ndi form 6 kapena zzthera pompa? dziko lili mmanja mwagalu

  58. I dont know malawi now!! So you mean one wil only write msce,,i thought jc exams are meant to test hw far u would do better at msce level..if you fail jc then u have to do again so that msce level u dont face tough times..dement !!

    • I understand you,do u think the idea of having jce exams is to help u get a job with that certificate,?? I thought its a pre test to msce…so like really frm form one up to four students will only write one exam frm the government..i dont think this is a good move!!

    • ku primary amachoka std 1 and write exams std 8, nde vuto ndichani kuyamba form 1 ndikuzalemba mayeso a boma mu form 4????? mo over at the end of each term ana amalemba ma end of term exams, what do think is the purpose of such examz? vuto la Malawi ndiloti you always resist change

    • U are right Bernard Nyasulu and AnDrew Stunner Mpekansambo to support kuti jce must be abolished ndiye linkhara vuto tu coz siwose amakhoza msce ija ndeno mwana palibe certificate yomwe azizasonyeza yoti anali ku school guys,!! After all kodi mwana akamalemba mayeso ndiyesa pamakhara ndalama yomwe amati examination fees to cover up those expenses ndiye why to complain about money

    • If companies doesnt employ pple with jce that has nothing to do with writing exams,what about if government can put a policy where by these companies must meet jce certificate when employing pple,for example,why should a company demand msce if they need a security guard,if they need a messanger,a driver..these things that you support next time they will abolish even msce,!!!

  59. Yes an excelent move since that was really waist of government resources nanga panopa jce yili ndi nchito yanji? let us learn from our fellow counterparts azathu ana siya kale

  60. To b honest this is a good move.., if u understand how things are going on in our country u will agree with that. Go in each and evry entinty and see if jce is being recognised, so y spend resouces on useless things? Big up mr President

    • Never ask what this or that would mean but just remain in egg shell with critics till PAM,the well Educated man on the staring tells whats the meaning of this all.All I believe is JCE is worthless nowadays without even talking of PSLC.All is already set Malawians lets wait and see.Who in those days ever questioned Aristotle of all the wisdom he had which up to date people are using.Bravo Arthur Peter.What we need to know is if we may fell to accept the changes then accept Jesus to be the Savior of your life and concentrate on how prophesies of the end are being fulfilled.Don’t waste time.
