Government will be subsidizing examination fees by 55% for candidates in Public schools, Local Authority schools and not for profit Mission Schools, the Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (ZIMSEC) has announced.
In a statement, ZIMSEC said all candidates in private schools and colleges, including private candidates in public schools will pay the full cost of the examination fees.
“The 2022 examination fees are pegged against the USD. However, parents and guardians are advised to pay the fees at the prevailing interbank rate, as at 22 July 2022, which will be communicated by ZIMSEC to all centres.
“Payments in USD are not to be made or accepted by school/centre heads. Parents and Guardians must make payments at their respective centres during the period of 22 July to 29 July 2022,” the statement said.
Below are the approved 2022 Examination registration fees:
ZIMSEC further advised parents and/or guardians as well as candidates to take heed of the registration period of 22 July to 29 July 2022 and closing dates given to them by their respective school or centre so as to avoid irregularities in their registration.
“No payments should be made directly into the ZIMSEC account by Parents/ Guardians, centres are requested not to allow individual candidates to make their own deposits into the ZIMSEC Account. There will be no late registration for November 2022 examinations,” it said.
