Zimbabwe's June Exams Cancelled After Covid-19 Disruption

The June 2021 Zimsec public examinations for both O and A-Levels have been cancelled following disruptions caused by Covid-19 and the resulting lockdown. Learners who wanted to sit for the exams in June will now join the large majority who are being prepared to sit for the November 2021 session. The decision to suspend the examinations arose from the alterations to the standard calendar for education for 2020 and 2021 that saw schools closing for months, to combat the second wave of infection. As of April 8 2021, confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Zimbabwe reached 36,984 while reported deaths are at 1,531.
