The eMAP platform has had its share of headaches and like most platforms which experience huge traffic once a year. The haphazard introduction of the system and the inconvenience that parents and pupils alike were subjected to shows an anomaly in this new eMAP system.
Pupils seeking Form One boarding places can still apply online using the Electronic Ministry’s Application Platform (eMAP) as the platform is still accepting application. The eMAP platform was opened for applications on 13 November 2018 to run to run until 12 January 2019.
The total number of Form 1 Boarding places available for the year 2019 was 24,246 and the potential number of applicants was 367,629. The ministry gave the following conditions:
No priority given to any school selected by the applicant (there is no first, second or third choice). This means that there is an equal chance for the applicant being selected at any of the schools they have applied to.
All applicants below the age of 13 should only use the platform under the guidance of their parent/guardian.
Enrolment by School Heads to only start when Grade 7 results are published by ZIMSEC
Successful applicants to be notified through SMS by the respective School Heads
Purchase of school uniform scan be done elsewhere, but with compliance to the school requirements and standard.
