Director’s Welcome

Welcome to the Mauritius Examinations Syndicate 
Founded in 1984, the Mauritius Examinations Syndicate (MES) is the national examinations board of  Mauritius. The MES conducts over seventy professional examinations, Cambridge examinations (O-level/SC, A-level/HSC) as well as all national examinations in the Mauritian primary cycle.  The MES is proud of its values, competent and dedicated staff, tight security measures and its experience in paper setting and the organisation of examinations.
The MES has five major examination sections dealing with the organisation of examinations and one Research and Syllabus Development section. The five major sections are the Cambridge Examinations Sections, The Marking, Training and Development Section, the Professional Examinations Sections ,the Internal Assessment Section and the National Examinations Section. Each section offers a panoply of examinations catering to the various needs of the Mauritian society.
With the support of the Ministry of Education and Human Resources, Tertiary Education and Scientific Research,  the MES is called upon to grow not only in terms of infrastructure but also in terms of staff, new examinations and new services including e-services.
The MES has recently embarked on a number of new projects including the implementation of the Nine Year Basic Continuous Education, Electronic Marking, the HSC Professional examinations, E-services and the development/implementation of new subjects, among others.
2016-2017 promises to be full of developments and innovation for the MES as we continue to contribute to the  future of education in Mauritius and in the near-by regions.
