OVER 28,000 grade nine pupils in Eastern Province have registered to write this year’s Computer Study exams.

Eastern Province Education Officer Allan Lingambe has confirmed to Breeze News monitored in Chipata on Monday that the 28,500 grade nine pupils have registered while only 900 did not register to sit for the exams.

He said that challenges in computers were what have resulted in the 900 pupils deciding not to write the exams.

Dr Lingambe said that recently the Ministry of General Education held a meeting with head teachers where it was agreed that any school which has more than six computers should hold the exams.

He explained that there was so much excitement among pupils over computer studies and that this was why the ministry was making sure that those who registered write without being inconvenienced.

The provincial education officer reiterated that the Ministry of General Education does not expect to face similar challenges like those of last year, where lack of computers had pupils sitting for exams late into the night.
