MANEB under fire over delayed PSLCE results
An education expert Benedicto Kondowe has faulted the Malawi National Examination Board (MANEB) for delaying to release results for the Primary School Leaving Certificate of Education (PSCLE) examinations.
The development comes at a time when some parents in Malawi have expressed dismay over MANEB’s delay to release the results as the next academic year is set to start on September 5.
The parents argued that the delay is to affect planning of fees and other requirements as children are to join the secondary level of Malawi education system.
Reacting on matter, Kondowe who is also the executive director for Civil Society Education Coalition said the delay has a negative impact on the curriculum saying that teachers will not be able to complete the syllabus.
“You have the results not yet released when the new academic year is starting on 5th, this is not acceptable, MANEB must realize that exams results are released in an established schedule,” said Kondowe.
He then demanded that the examinations body should release the results next week ahead of the opening date of Malawi schools across the country.
MANEB spokesperson Simeon Maganga is reported to have chosen not to give a word on the delay of the results.
