The Malawi National Examination Board says sample papers for the reinstated JCE which will be administered from 2021, have been dispatched to secondary schools.
Maneb Executive Director Gerald Chiunda says with the approval from the Ministry of Education, they have introduced a new examination paper, Social and Life Skills to be administered at both JCE and MSCE.
The paper is made up of concepts from Social Studies and Life Skills. At JCE level the first Social and Life Skills examination will be administered in 2021.
Sample papers for JCE Social and Life Skills examination are ready for delivery to schools.
Later, the board will dispatch MSCE Social and Life Skills sample papers to schools.
According to Chiunda, the reinstatement of JCE examination will not affect 2021 and 2022 MSCE examination ( the exam will still cover work for Forms 1 to 4).
He says as part of the changes, the 2023 MSCE examination will dwell on work covered in Forms 3 and 4.
