June A Level results out

HARARE - Results-day figures show once again that high school students have excelled in their A-level exams.

Results released yesterday show continued improvement in academic qualifications from last year.

Figures showed the overall pass rate had risen to 86,62 percent - up by 4 percent on 2014, Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (Zimsec) said.

More than 4 086 students in Zimbabwe are receiving their A-level results starting today — ending weeks of agony after taking their exams in June.

Zimsec director, Esau Nhandara, urged examination centre heads to collect the results from Zimsec Regional Offices.

“Candidates who sat for this examination will be able to collect their results from their respective schools or centres from Tuesday 18 August 2015,” Nhandara said.

Overall, there was relatively little change with exam board officials describing the results as evidence that A-levels “remain stable”.

According to Zimsec analyses, the majority of candidates, both from private and government schools, sat for only one subject.

“School candidates who registered for two or more subjects were 568 and   492 obtained Grade E or better in two or more subjects, which translates to a percentage pass rate of 86,62 percent,” Nhandara said.

“Private candidates who registered for two or more subjects were 1 327 and 833 obtained Grade E or better in two or more subjects, which translates to a percentage pass rate of 62, 77 percent.”

School candidates performed better than the private candidates, Zimsec said.
