Zimsec has established alternative centres for the June 2020 examinations that begin today to replace a handful of schools that were being used as Covid-19 quarantine centres.
In a statement on Sunday, Zimsec said the decision to create alternative venues followed a directive from the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education against the use of such schools.
In Harare, candidates that registered to write examinations at Churchill and Roosevelt High schools will now sit their examinations at Admiral Tait Primary School, a couple of blocks away, while those that were supposed to sit for examinations at Mabelreign Girls High School will use Avonlea Primary School, again very close by.
