 In 2013, the Examinations Council of Swaziland introduced E-Registration which is a new method to register candidates electronically.  There is no need for schools to fill up registration forms and lozenges.  An Excel Spreadsheet file is used to register candidates.  E-Registration was piloted on 12 Primary Schools and 12 High Schools.

In 2014, during the Headteachers’ workshop, schools were informed that E-Registration will be rolled out to all schools in 2015.  This year (2015), it is compulsory for all schools to register their candidates using E-Registration.

Processes to take place:

  • Schools are required to send their email addresses to the following email address: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
  • ECOS will send the E-Registration Excel file and instructions to schools using the school email.
  • Schools can also download the E-Registration files via the ECOS Website:
  • Schools are free to call ECOS in case they have problems in using the file: 24162865/6/7/8/9. OR 24162861 direct line to Mr. Z. O. Gamedze
  • Schools with no computers and internet connection are advised to go to:

a)    Internet Cafe at a nearest town to register their candidates
b)    Regional Education Offices/Centres where there will be ECOS officers to help schools register their candidates.

  • The period for E-Registration of all candidates for SPC, JC and SGCSE is 23th February 2015 to 27thFebruary 2015.
  • Schools are informed that they have to register all their candidates including OVC candidates and those who have not paid their exam fees.
  • ECOS will produce and send via email to schools a bill statement for all non OVC candidates between 15th March to 20th March 2015 to allow schools to prepare for payments.
  • ECOS will print and send to schools, registration reports/statements of entry by 10th May 2015.  This will help schools make corrections and submit them immediately to ECOS.
  • Deadline date for corrections is 30th June 2015 for all levels.
  • The last payment date for registration for all levels is 6th July    2015.
  • Schools are required to delete candidates who failed to pay exam fees before 6th July 2015.  All candidates who are on the Exams System after 6th July 2015 are the officially registered candidates who have paid their examination fees and will write the end of year examinations.

SGCSE Handbook for Centres

The Examinations Council of Swaziland (ECOS) is a quasi-Government organisation with the mandate to administer examinations and issue certificates to primary, junior secondary and senior secondary school graduates.  The Examinations Council was established through the Education Act No. 9 of 1981.

To maintain high standards and an internationally recognised Swaziland General Certificate of Secondary Education (SGCSE) Qualification, ECOS works in close collaboration with the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), who accredits SGCSE.

The regulations and procedures on the conduct of examinations contained in this Handbook meet international standards.

Higher School Leaving Qualification
The Ministry of Education and Training is embarking on the introduction of a school leaving qualification, higher than the current SGCSE. This is in a bid to address the problem of having Swazi students undertake a bridging course when applying to institutions of higher learning in South Africa and other countries abroad. The qualification will be equivalent or higher than that of South Africa’s Matric or CIE’s AS Level. Consultations are underway to solicit the views of stakeholders and partners in education. The first of such meetings took place at the University of Swaziland on 5 December 2012.
