Education expert Benedicto Kondowe has appealed for professionalism from all stakeholders as the Junior Certificate of Education (JCE) examinations are set to commence on Tuesday this week.
According to Malawi National Examination Board (MANEB) 159,946 students will sit for JCE exams from 2nd to 11th August this year.
In an interview with Timveni, Kondowe said stakeholders, including invigilators, have to be vigilant in ensuring that there are no issues of examination leakage during this year’s examinations.
Kondowe commended Maneb for tightening security in its administration of examinations this year as so far there haven’t been reports of any malpractice.
He, however, said there is need to ensure that all students are writing examinations in a conducive environment so that the performance should not be affected by other factors.
This year will be the second time that JCE exams will be administered in the country after being abolished in 2016.
