Maneb starts registration for 2017 examinations
The Malawi National Examinations Board (Maneb) has begun registering students for the 2017 Primary School Leaving Certificate of Education (PSLCE) and Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) examinations.
According to a press statement signed by Maneb spokesperson Simeon Maganga, the exercise will end on 9th December, 2016.
Maganga warned examination centres against registering more candidates than what their centre can accommodate.
“Examination centres should ensure that external candidates do not exceed 70% of the internal candidates registered,” said Maganga.
Meanwhile, examination centres have been encouraged to be depositing examination fees into Maneb account periodically to avoid cases of theft.
However, missing on the list of examinations to be administered next year are Junior Certificate of Education (JCE) exams which got abolished earlier this year.
“Further, examination centres are reminded not to register candidates for Junior Certificate of Education (JCE) examination as it was phased out,” said Maganga.
He also advised all centres not to collect any fees, be it examination or ID fees, from Form 2 students.
