Grade 7 top 100 schools

HARARE - Forty primary schools, led by Mutare Probation Primary, attained an incredible 100 percent pass rate in the November 2014, Zimbabwe Schools Examination Council (Zimsec) examinations.

According to Zimsec statistics, the rest of the schools completing the Top 100 table scored a percentage pass rate of over 94 percent, culminating in an improved Grade 7 national pass rate from the 32,2 percent recorded in 2013.

In 2013, only 22 schools attained 100 percent pass rate as compared to 40 that attained that feat last year.

The pass rate in 2012 was 31,5 percent.

The majority of the top-ranked learning institutions were private schools.  

Mutare Probation, is in Ward 10 in Mutare Central. The school has an enrolment of only 39 boys and these are taught by three teachers.

Other schools which recorded a 100 percent pass rate are Waterfalls Primary, Redcliff Primary, Old Windsor Primary, Hippo Valley Estates Primary School, Citrus Primary School, Saiss Junior School, Bata Committee Primary, Rutengeni Primary, Mvurachena Primary, Mutarazi Junior School and Russell Primary.

Really? This is News now?

Chenai Chipikiri - 26 January 2015

Chenai Chipikiri, oh yes indeed it is news. As a nation we take pride to be Zimbabwean, 40 schools recording 100% pass rate and you do not want that to be celebrated? In South Africa they celebrate any basic school achievement at all platforms from the Presidency to the last man on the street. Lets be proud of our achievements

Chief Svosve - 27 January 2015

Very poor from daily news. We can see the image

Thanks Shabani Primary, you continue to set the pace, not only in the district but nationally. Keep up the good work.

Can you re post and put a link to at least an Excel or word document that we can download. I can barely see anything

Peter - 27 January 2015

First, we cannot see the image and thats poor form from the paper and second why would they rank schools without taking into account the number of candidates. The stats in the article are difficult to interpret and in some ways concerning. While celebrating top achievers is nice we need to see the overall picture of the entire performance. The article states that the national pass rate was 32.2% in 2013 and 31.5% in 2012 but does not mention the national pass rate in 2014. Overall those are poor figures given that the system fails more than 65% at primary level, its no wonder that by the time we get to A levels we have 30 000 students sitting for those exams.Those numbers even for a small country are not acceptable. We have replicated an elitist system where there is more interest in a 100 schools out of the thousands more that are tasked with educating our people.

Congratulations Northwood Adventist Primary School. You have done it again, naJesu zvinoita!

Caroline Makoni - 27 January 2015

There should be a minimum number of students per school to allow it to be ranked otherwise we cant compare a school with only 8 candidates with the one with 50, this is a shame comparison. Giving credit to wrong people. If all 7 candidates at Mutare blah blah school had 4 units and 7 best performers from the 98 Mahatshula had 4 units then how on earth can Mutare blah blah justify their number 1!?

Please daily news can you break down the units these kids how many had 4 units, five units and so on.If you just say 100% it does not mean anything to me.

Lets revisit the whole education system and give constructive criticism. Could you also include the most improved and also consider Rural schools on their own

Mahembe - 27 January 2015

I think this is good to know how schools perform . I want to salute this multi racial school Rydings for a job well done . Amongst the private elite schools I think it did extremely well. And my niece was there too , the quality passes was great. we need to also know how many quality passes were there. keep it up guys.

mhofu - 28 January 2015

Please we need information about how many students attained e.g 4 units, 5 units etc thats more important coz if you just say 100% it doesnt make any sense. According to Zimsec standard anyone who got 18 units and below are considered to have passed.

Sibongile Chingono - 29 January 2015
