Mzuzu-(MaraviPost)—Government through the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEST) has admitted that the 2020 secondary school national examinations have leaked.

In a statement issued on 3th November, 2020, the ministry indicated to have taken note of the development and that the national examination body, Malawi National Examination Board (MANEB), convened an emergency board meeting at 5 o’clock PM to map the way forward.

Apparently, the examinations which started on October 27, 2020, have leaked with Agriculture Paper 2, English Paper 1 and Biology Paper 1 being shared by different people on the social media.

When contacted on Monday, Minister responsible, Agnes NyaLonje, expressed ignorance of the development and asked for more time before commenting on the same.

About 152 thousand candidates are sitting for the 2020 national exams which were initially slated to be administered from June 18, 2020, but were postponed due to Covid-19 which led to closure of primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities.
