The Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (ZIMSEC) says it is pushing for the adoption of an electronic locking system in order to ensure that there is no tampering of examinations.

ZIMSEC has been trying to plug leakages of examination papers which has been a cause for concern over the past years.

This Thursday (today), the parliamentary portfolio committee on primary and secondary education was in Norton where they were appraised on the efforts the examination body is putting in place to ensure that exam leakages are stopped.

The examinations body has also called on government to consider ZIMSEC a strategic entity needing more funding to provide examination security.

The portfolio committee on primary and secondary education says there is need for more efforts to ensure ZIMSEC maintains its integrity as an examination body.

ZIMSEC says its ultimate goal is the standardisation and control of examinations at all stages.
