Zimsec November Examination Fees Set
The Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (Zimsec) has announced fees for the November O-Level and A-Level examinations.
Examination fee for Ordinary Level is ZWL$1 648.00 per subject and ZWL$2 400.00 per subject for Advanced Level.
The fees have been set with a 55 percent Government subsidy for those writing the examinations in public schools.
This brings the total cost down to $5 194 for seven O-Level subjects and $3 240 for three A-Level subjects.
The full cost for O-Level will be $1 648 a subject for candidates at private schools and colleges while those eligible for the subsidy will pay $742 a subject, with a maximum of seven subjects covered by the subsidy.
A-Level exam fees at private schools and colleges are $2 400 a subject and $1 080 a subject in the public system, up to a maximum of four subjects.
For those sitting for communication skills there is an extra fee of $994 at public schools and $2 208 at private schools.
Anyone in the public system writing more subjects will pay the full cost for the extra subjects.
The public schools include those run by local authorities and the non-profit mission schools.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there are no Zimsec examinations in June. Delays caused by the Covid-19 prevention measures saw last November’s exams extend into early this year and there was a late start to the first term this year.
The closing date for payment and submission of entries for the examinations is July 9 and late entries will close on July 30.
The subsidy, with a budget of $1,7 billion, was put in place to ease the pressure on parents whose incomes were affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
In a statement, Primary and Secondary Education Minister Cain Mathema said Government’s intervention will ensure that all eligible school candidates in public schools will be able to register for this year’s exams.
