Government tells O level kids to rewrite English exam after widespread cheating
Zimbabwe has told O Level students that they will have to sit again for the ZIMSEC English Paper 2 O Level November exams after reports of widespread cheating.
Primary and Secondary Education Minister Professor Paul Mavhima made the announcement on Thursday nullifying all results.
This is criminal dereliction of duty by our leaders. papers leak every year and its getting worse. Re-writing is not necessary the cure. It's stemming the haemorrhage.

Friday 16 February from 1000hrs to 1200hrs.is the date when the exam will be sat for again.
Heads must roll we cannot year after year have exams leaking – who has ever been punished each year – this is an abuse to our children who work hard only to be punished – not acceptable! https://t.co/Nh8pafXFR7

The short notice given is a bit worrying though, given some may be away or simply not close to their sitting centres.
