MAGWEGWE High School in Bulawayo recorded a 98% pass rate in last November's Advanced Level examinations with one pupil scoring 18 points.

Former child parliamentarian, Effort Dube got As in Divinity, Ndebele, History and a C in Literature in English in the Zimbabwe Schools Examination Council examinations.

The school's deputy headmaster Robby Shumba told NewsDay yesterday they were elated by the results.

"We are pleased that since we introduced "A" Level classes in 2005, in arts subjects, we have been getting close to a 100% pass rate," Shumba said.

"The students passed very well this year as we got a 98% pass rate.




"Next year we are aiming at getting a 100% pass rate. The problem we have is that of resources, but we will continue striving for good results."

In 2011, the school's "A" Level pass rate stood at 90% while the previous year it was at 85%.

A beneficiary of the Capernaum Trust founded in Zimbabwe in 1996 by businessman Strive Masiyiwa to support orphaned and vulnerable children, Dube said he was now planning to enroll for a law degree.

"I want to go to the University of Zimbabwe, but if I can get sponsorship, I would love to study at Harvard University in the United States and come back to help my country with the vast knowledge I would have acquired there," he said.

Another pupil at the school, Enoch Dambudzo, had 15 points from three subjects.
