THE deadline for the payment of November 2023 Ordinary and Advanced Level examinations remains April 14, the Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (ZIMSEC) has announced; quashing speculation that the date has been moved.
The examination fees are payable in both local and foreign currency, with the interbank rate being applicable for the period April 4 to 10.
In a statement yesterday, ZIMSEC said the November examinations registration closing date has not been moved from April 14 as is being reported in some circles that some centres have set March 30 as the deadline.
“The November 2023 Ordinary and Advanced Level registration is currently open. All candidates who wish to sit for their examinations should register at their centre of choice. Examination registration fees are pegged in US$ and parents can make payments in local currency or Rand. Those who would like to make payments in local currency will use the interbank rate which will be communicated by ZIMSEC on April 4.”
“Centres are hereby advised that although they may wish to set deadlines which allow for administration of entries, these deadlines should not disadvantage any candidates through failure to register. Deadlines should allow for payment of fees in currencies of the parents or guardians’ choice for onward submission to ZIMSEC in the currency which they received,” reads part of the statement.
ZIMSEC urged all heads of centres to adhere to the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education’s circulars on the administration of centres or schools during school holidays.
