ZIMSEC still owes 2011 "O" level exam markers

ZIMSEC STILL OWES “O” LEVELS MARKERS 25 PERCENT OF DUES
Harare March 9, 2012 (New Ziana)-The Zimbabwe Schools Examinations Council (Zimsec) still owes “O” Level markers at least 25 percent of their dues for marking last year’s November exams, an official said on Friday.
Zimsec board chairperson Professor Norman Maphosa said the examinations body was still to get funds to pay off the remaining balances.
“The council paid all Grade Seven and “A” Level markers all their marking fees but we still owe 25 percent to the entire “O” Level markers,” he said.
“We expect to receive money from Treasury and pay them in the near future,” he said.
Meanwhile, Maphosa said Zimsec was implementing some new innovations to improve its efficiency.
He said Zimsec had piloted e-marking and was also expecting to introduce electronic registration for the June and November 21012 exams.
The examinations body was also in the process of setting up a printing and sorting warehouse facility in Norton, he said.
Maphosa said ZIMSEC was also on course to release the 2010 June and November exam certificates.
“Counterfeit certificates were increasing and the council needed to place more security features, which is on course,” he said.
ZIMSEC has over the years come under fire for failing to release results timeously since taking over the running of local examinations from Cambridge in 1999.
It has also been plagued by inefficiency in running the examination system, resulting in exam paper leakages and cheating.
