FAQs

Conversion of foreign results

Evaluation of foreign results (senior certificates of other countries ONLY) is done at a charge of M200.00 per evaluation. Most local institutions would request an evaluation of foreign results for them to interpret them correctly.

Change of names on the certificates

ECoL does not change names on the certificate. Certificates are the last document given to candidate as a proof of his/ her performance. Names printed on certificates are retrieved from individuals examinations registration. This means that if during registration, your names had been mis-spelt, then you will have to ensure that you submit corrections to ECoL before certificates could be printed. In case you have changed your names, e.g. after marriage for ladies, your marriage certificate will have to accompany your certificates because ECoL will not change any names on certificates

Date of applying for remarks

Application period is one month after the publication of the results in question for all the three examinations.

Issue on lost certificates

Candidates must safe keep all their important documents. Certificates are issued once to the candidate.
