These are the new developments in favor of those in Grades 10 and 12, who will be able to compete in the School Certificate (SC)/GCE ‘O’ Level and Higher School Certificate (HSC), ‘A’ Level examinations scheduled for October-November 2022.
This decision is in favor of those who wish to recover the lost year due to the pandemic. Interested candidates are requested to already register with their respective schools. This decision is optional and is only for those students who feel ready. They will compete as ‘school candidates’ but will also have to take part in the internal tests for Grades 10 and 12. However, the Ministry of Education has announced that everything will be done in order.
The Mauritius Examinations Syndicate (MES) has issued Circular No. 14 to the rectors of secondary schools. This circular concerns all the conditions and modes of payment related to the School Certificate (SC)/GCE ‘O’ Level and Higher School Certificate (HSC) ‘A’ Level examinations scheduled for October-November 2022. Thus, student entries must be made online. The Initial Fee is Rs 454, the O’Level Subject Fee is Rs 2232, the A level Subject Fee/Cambridge Advanced Professional in IT (HSC PRO) will be Rs 4485, the Advanced Subsidiary Level Subject Fee/Global Perspectives (HSC PRO) will be Rs 3141, the Subject Fee for ‘Carried Forward’ option (except for Food Studies) will be Rs 3141 and the Late Entry Fee is Rs 377. However, candidates, who have already paid for the May/June 2022 exams and have not taken part, will not have to pay. The amount will be transferred to the October/November exams, except, of course, for those who have already withdrawn and refunded.
