Addressing a Press conference in Harare, Primary and Secondary Education minister Lazarus Dokora said the results indicated a 2,32% improvement from last year.

“The overall pass rate for November 2013 is 20,72%,” Dokora said.
“This figure accounts for more than five credits. In 2012, the overall pass rate was 18, 4%. As can be observed, the pass rate increased by 2,32%.”

Dokora said the percentage rate excludes the June 2013 examination results.

The total number of candidates who sat for “O” Level exams in 2013 was 285 260 against the 268 854 registered in 2012.

Other schools in the top 10 list were Anderson Secondary School in Gweru (97,71%),  John Tallach Secondary School in Matabeleland North (96,15%), Nyanga High (96%), Zimbabwe Republic Police School in Harare (95,58%), St Ignatius College in Chishawasha (95,95%), Nyazura Adventist High (94,63%), Regina Mundi Secondary School in Gweru (93,75%), St Dominic’s Chishawasha Secondary School (93,26%) and Kriste Mambo Secondary School in Rusape (92,31%).

Dokora said the ministry had withheld results for 680 candidates at Marathon Academy, Mbizo, Manunure, Amaveni, Globe and Pheonix, Kwekwe, Mambo, Zesa Munyati and Chituripasi to allow for investigations into the alleged leaking of examination papers by a teacher at one of the schools. The leaked papers were for Geography and Integrated Science.

Zimsec director Esau Nhandara said candidates could collect their results from their centres starting today.
