Malawi Govt abolishes application-based admissions into public secondary schools – Press Release

Date:

The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology would like to inform all members of the general public that with effect from the 2014/15 academic year which starts in September 2014, admission of students in public secondary schools based on applications has been abolished.

The Ministry has reverted to the merit system of selecting students into public secondary schools to improve the efficiency of the system and more importantly to ensure high quality of education and fairness to candidates.

Following this policy shift, the Ministry would like to urge all candidates who may not make it to public secondary schools through selection by merit to still pursue their education through the Open and Distance Learning mode available in most of our public secondary schools.

In the same vein, the Ministry wishes to warn all headteachers and teachers of public secondary schools to desist from illegally admitting students in public secondary schools including their own wards as that action will attract appropriate disciplinary action.
