LAST year's pass rates for Zimsec Ordinary and Advanced Levels improved significantly compared to 2010.

The pass rate for the November results for O-Level improved by four percent, while that for A-Level improved by over 10 percent.

The 2011 national percentage pass rate for O and A-Level stands at 19,50, from 16,50 for the 2010 results.

The pass rate for A-Level increased to 85,25, up from 75,99 in 2010.

St Faith's High School in Manicaland had the best results for A-Level, followed by Shungu in Midlands and Nyanga high schools in Manicaland respectively.

For O-Level, Nyanga High School was the best-placed school, followed by St Dominics (Chishawasha) and ZRP High School respectively.

Zimbabwe School Examinations Council board chairman Professor Norman Maphosa yesterday said the Grade Seven performance improved by close to four percent, from 25 percent in 2010 to 28,9 percent last year.

He said registered candidates for O-Level went up from 229 522 in 2010 to 241 512 last year. Candidates who sat for A-Level dropped from 27 782 in 2010 to 25 136 last year.

A total of 288 365 candidates registered for Grade Seven examinations last year, down from 303 978 in 2010.

"The O-Level pass rate stands at 19,50 percent last year and the criterion for passing is five subjects or more at Grade C or better up from 16,50 percent the previous year," he said.

"The A-Levels registered a big improvement of 10 percent at 85,25 last year, up from 75,99 percent in 2010 using a passing criterion of two or more subjects at grade E or better.

"It is pleasing to note that across all levels, the pass rates are showing an upward movement trend."

The O and A-Level passes were however, dominated by church-run schools with an overall pass rate of 73,8 percent.

Prof Maphosa paid tribute to Zimsec staff and management for producing the results on time. He praised Zimbabwe's education system, saying the country's General Certificate of Education for O and A-Levels was equivalent to the United Kingdom Ordinary Levels (grades C-A) and Advanced Levels (grades E-A).

He said Zimsec had introduced e-marking, adding that this year's June and November examinations will register developments in marking.

"Another technological development is that in the 2012 A-Level June examinations, we are piloting the registration of candidates via computer," he said.

"In addition to Tonga, which was examined in 2011, Zimsec is going to examine more minority languages."
