Prospective Form V selectees given opportunity to make course changes

​​​​​​​THE government has said the selection of Form V students and technical colleges will be done after they make changes of subject combination and courses they had earlier selected to give them opportunity for study fields of their choices.

Minister of State in the President’s Office (Regional Administration and Local Government –RALG) Seleman Jafo.

The selection will be done for 135,301 students who obtained Divisions I to IV in their 2019 national Form IV examinations.

Minister of State in the President’s Office (Regional Administration and Local Government –RALG) Seleman Jafo told   newsmen here on Tuesday, saying the changes for the courses and subjects combination they had earlier selected will be done electronically from March 25 to April 19 this year.

He said the opportunity to make changes to combinations and courses of preference was necessary following many students not being certain of how they will perform in their exams.

He said in the past students after selecting the fields and courses of their preference many found themselves with different results in exams hence they were forced to pursue fields not of their preference. 

He said the opportunity will enable a student to study the field that will prepare him to acquire professionalism   or with consultation  from parents or guardians.

“These changes are being done via website—selform.tamisemi.go.tz and if by April 19 this year a student will not have changed his field of preference, his-her earlier selection will be taken into consideration and we will not entertain any further complaints,” Jafo said.

He added: “This is the second year to apply the system and our team is well prepared for any snags that may arise as the ICT department is well organised and equipped.”
