Parents, teachers, and students alike are encouraged to adhere to examination regulations and guidelines to ensure a successful and rewarding examination period. MANEB will continue to monitor the examinations closely and address any emerging issues promptly to maintain the credibility and reliability of the MSCE results.

As Malawi looks forward to the outcomes of these examinations, the nation remains committed to nurturing a skilled and knowledgeable future generation through rigorous and equitable educational assessments.
