Malawi National Examination Board (MANEB) has described 2015 as a ‘successful year when it comes to the administering of national examinations in all levels across the country, saying no examination leakage was registered.

This has been disclosed in a Press statement released on Tuesday in Blantyre signed by MANEB Public Relations Officer (PRO) Simeon Maganga.

According to Maganga, this has been made possible because of the cordial relationship which was there between the board and the general public and the aggressive public awareness on the dangers of malpractices.

Maganga said the board registered high levels of leakages at the Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) level in the years 2000, 2007, 2012 and 2013.

“In2014, only 126 candidates were disqualified at the MSCE level, representing 0.1%. In 2015, only one case of cheating was reported during the Junior Certificate of Education (JCE) examination,” reads the statement in part.

Turning to time of releasing the examinations, Maganga said there has been a significant improvement in releasing examination results.

“We were able to release examination results this year for both JCE and Primary School Leaving Certificate of Education (PSLCE) levels before the opening of a new academic year. MSCE examination, we were able to release the results in October,” he said.

Maganga also said there was also an improvement in the administration and processing of examinations this year.

“Due to creative fruitful and strategic partnership with all key stakeholders, the public may wish to note:
Spot-checkers reported a tremendous improvement on the administration of national examination.

“Examination administrators reported on examination malpractices without fear or favour, and quickly,” he said.

Meanwhile MANEB has hailed all stakeholders and the general public for their support during and towards the successful administration of national examinations.
