No more easy work for MSCE candidates: exams to include Form One work
The Malawi National Examination Board (MANEB) has disclosed that Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) exams will now cover work starting from Form One to Form Four.
The new approach on the exams follows the abolishment of Junior Certificate of Education exams.
MANEB disclosed that students are now to prepare for all secondary school work before sitting for MSCE exams.
In a statement made available to Malawi24, the examination body says it has put forth plans to cover all topics and subtopics learned in both senior and junior levels of Malawi’s secondary education.
“The examination syllabus committee will meet to develop new MSCE tables of test specifications based on both junior and senior levels.
“Sample MSCE papers will be developed from the new MSCE tables of test specification and sent to all secondary schools,” reads part of the statement.
However MANEB has disclosed that the change will be effected on candidates sitting for the MSCE exams in 2019.
