The Zimbabwe Schools Examinations Council (ZIMSEC) June 2020 exams will start on 22 June and end on 22 July.
This was said by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education, Tumisang Tabela during a hearing before the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Education chaired by Honourable Priscilla Misihairabwi Mushonga (Proportional Representation) in Harare this Wednesday.
She said the Education Ministry noted that there are a number of issues which will be considered before schools can re-open.
The issues have to do with the guidelines from the Ministry of Health and Child Care which are meant to curb the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus.
Thabela said schools need to be disinfected while more furniture is required for social distancing with each school expected to have an infrared thermometer for testing purposes.
An announcement will be made on how the June examinations will proceed, Thabela added.
