Speaking to The Herald, Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (Zimsec) public relations manager Ms Nicky Dlamini confirmed that they will today release November 2016 Ordinary Level results.
There was an overall increase in pass rate of 5,48 percent in 2015 as compared to the previous year. The November 2015 pass rate was 27,76 percent for school candidates while private candidates scored 12,01 percent. Last year, Zimsec director Mr Esau Nhandara announced that the examination board had, for the first time, down-scaled pass rates by recognising Grade E as a pass. He said candidates who obtained a Grade E would be given a certificate grade while those passing with Grade C or better would be considered to have passed the subject with a credit.
