The Examination Council of Zambia (ECZ) has dismissed information circulating on social media that it has nullified the 2017 Grade 12 examination results.
ECZ Director Michael Chilala disclosed in a statement to ZANIS today, that contrary to the purported statement on social media, the 2017 grade 12 results are valid and still accessible on the ECZ SMS platform.
“The results are valid and are still accessible on our SMS platform, while the school leavers will access the statements of results during the week beginning 31st January, 2018 from their examination centres,” Dr. Chilala explained.
Dr. Chilala said the statement circulating on social media that the council has nullified the 2017 examination results is false adding that, the council approved the 2017 grade 12 results on 18th January this year.
He added that following the approval, the results were then announced by the Minister of General Education.
Meanwhile, the Examination Council of Zambia has extended the registration period for candidates sitting for the 2018 examinations.
Dr. Chilala said the council has set February 16, 2018 as the new closing date.
He has since advised examination centres to ensure that all candidates for the 2018 grades 7, 9, 12, GCE and teachers educations are dully registered by the new closing date.
