Grade 9 Exams Not Cancelled – Examination Council

The Examination Council of Zambia has dispelled assertions that Grade Nine examinations for the 2017 intake have been cancelled.

READ THE FULL STATEMENT

CLARIFICATION ON THE ALLEGED CANCELLATION OF THE 2017 GRADE 9 INTERNAL EXAMINATION

Following social media reports purporting that the Examinations Council of Zambia (ECZ) will cancel the 2017 Grade 9 Examination due to suspected cases of examination irregularities reported, we wish to clarify and state our position on the matter.

To start with, there has been no official statement issued by the Ministry of General Education or the ECZ regarding the nullification of examination at this level. It therefore follows that the speculations on social media are unfounded and false.

We are compelled to think that these speculations are merely meant to alarm members of the public so as to disturb the smooth flow of the examination process.

Our position is that the 2017 Grade 9 Internal Examination and all the other Examinations conducted by the ECZ shall not be cancelled and shall run as per approved Timetables dispatched to schools/examination centres.

We hope this clarification will settle the dust and enable the various stakeholders in the respective schools/examination centres countrywide, adhere to the 2017 examination schedule in order to have yet another successful examination session.

  13. nsenga Nickson

    Yes that’s so much realistic, ,supportive, and a example as an independent board or rather institution, hope others too have learnt a lesson to defend such immortality! !!

  14. Hotness

    That is nonsense ,how can one dispell assertions on something he or she has not gathered enough information? All exams at grade 7,9and 12 were supposed to be nullified just like what the nurses council of Zambia has done.

    It is an honour and privilege to hear that those speculations meant nothing concerning to the well being of the society.That has actually saved the reputation of the (ECZ) and ministry General Education.

  21. Christopher Kabwe

    ECZ should work hard to curb leakages of Exams at whatever level. Year in year out exams are leaked,where is the problem? Do you need a commission of enquiry to put your house in order? You are helping to lower the standard of education.

    Ecz has clarified that these were merely speculations, on what grounds did they base their conclusion? You see, nowardays most pupils don’t work hard because they know that they will use leakages whn writing the final exams. This has made the job of teachers to be very difficult. Some parents are even involved in buying leakages for their children in order to make them pass. What kind of morality are we enculcating in our children if we don’t tell them what is right or wrong. Ecz needs to work on sources of leakages if it needs education to be meaningful. This is the reason why we have Professionals using leakages because they did not pass using their intellectual abilities. Ecz plz do your assignment nxt yr we need to see a change even if you have dispelled the truth.

  63. Dickson Luwisha

    ECZ AND MINISTRY OFCEDUCATION MUST WORK EXTRA HARD.
    THEY FORCE INNOCENT TEACHERS AND CANDIDATES TO TAKE OATH BEFORE THE EXAMS, MEANWHILE LEAKAGES ARE COMING FROM THE SOURCE.
    REFUTING TO THE ALLEGATIONS WILL NOT HELP CURB THE VICE. THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS THAT THERE ARE LEAKAGES IN EACH AND EVERY EXAMINATIONS CONDUCTED BY E.C.Z.
