  • Registration of the GCE candidates for the year 2021/2022 Examination will be done through the Online Candidate Registration System (OCRS). This is a system that has been designed to allow for the registration of candidates at the school level.
  • An intending candidate becomes a bonafide candidate only after he/she has been correctly entered by the Head teacher of a registered Examination Centre and confirmed by the Examinations Council of Zambia through the final Attendance Register.

Candidates entering for the General Certificate of Education Examination must be in possession of a valid National Registration Card (NRC) or valid passport.

Only GCE candidates who have paid examination fees should be entered for the examination.


  • The Head teachers/Centre Coordinators are advised to strictly follow the guidelines for the registration of candidates enclosed herewith and in the OCRS Manual.
  • The Provincial Education Officers and District Education Board Secretaries should ensure that checklists are used to verify that all registered examination centres have presented candidates on the printed and signed Provisional Candidate registers from the schools/centres.
  • Only provisional candidate registers printed after verification and signed by the candidates should be submitted to the Examinations Council of Zambia together with Special Educational Needs Reports, Centre subject totals and Payment Reports for each Centre.
  • Verification of data is one quality control measure which ensures that all candidates have been registered. You are therefore urged not to skip any of the verification processes.
  • There will be no extension to the closing date for receipt of entries as the date for procurement of examination materials cannot be changed.
