The Malawi Examinations Board (MANEB) has released the results of the 2013 Malawi School Certificate of Education examinations. Of the 127, 383 candidates who sat for the exam, 66 853 have qualified for the award of the ex-prestigious MSCE.
The pass number represents a 52.48 % pass rate. This is in contrast to the previous year’s pass rate which was at 51 %.
The 2013 exams were massively leaked with papers being sold across the nation and even posted in social forums. At first there were rumours that the exams were going to be rewritten but government rescinded its decision saying such an exercise would be costly.
