ELIMU YA DINI YA KIISLAMU EXAMINATION FORMAT FORM FOUR
015 ELIMU YA DINI YA KIISLAMU
(Kwa Watahiniwa Walioko na Wasiokuwa Shuleni)
This format is an improvement of the 2008 format issued by the Tanzania Examination Council. This format is based on the summary of Islamic Religious Education in 2012.
In this format, improvements have been made in the format of the exam. Instead of having two papers (015 Islamic Religious Education 1 & 2), there will be one Islamic Religious Education subject paper. These improvements have been made due to the repetition of the topics that were being examined in papers 1 and 2.
In addition, in this format, emphasis has been placed on competency questions that measure higher levels of thinking. However, in this format there is no change in the topics to be examined.
