How To Apply For 2021 Form 1 Boarding Places On eMAP

Government Gives Update On The Opening Of Schools
file picture:

The Ministry of Primary & Secondary Education has opened the Electronic Ministry Application Platform (eMAP) to allow parents/guardians to apply for boarding places for their children.

The eMap platform is open for application from December 07, 2020, to 31 January 2021.

A significant change on the platform this year is that the maximum number of schools that can be applied to at once has been reduced from five to three.

The move may have been necessitated by a need to reduce the load on the system. Last year there were some challenges and anomalies on the system due to high traffic levels.

You will be notified if your application is accepted or rejected via SMS only after the Grade 7 results are released since they will be used in the selection process.

It would also be wise to apply as soon as possible since the boarding school places are quite limited. Last year the number of places available far outstripped demand for them and the same is bound to be true for this year.

There is no eMap Zimbabwe application form for 2021. You have to apply online.

If you need help with the online registration you can WhatsApp +263 717 140 139
