Picking up from where the ‘class of 2021’ Advanced Level crop left, Zimuto High School’s ‘class of 2022’ have defied being out-shined by their predecessors as they posted impressive results in the Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (ZIMSEC) examinations.
The RCZ-run educational institution stood up to its expectations among Masvingo’s academic stalwarts by posting an impressive overall 97.78 percent up from 92 percent in 2021.
School Head Harrison Mashava, said they were happy with their leaners’ performances saying they did well even though they were coming out of Covid 19. He said though the pass rate was high, they will continue striving for the highest mark.
“Our pupils and teachers worked well and this is why we produced these results. However, for us they are not enough, we want a clear 100 % pass rate and that’s our target for this year’s,” said Mashava.
The highest performers scored 20 points. Of the three 20 pointers are two girls Fungai Mawire and Mary Fuwayi and a boy Tapiwa Simango.
Mawire scored four As in Accounting, Computer Science, Business Studies and Economics while Fuwayi also got a similar number of As in History, Literature in Shona, Sociology and Family and Religious Studies (FRS). Simango got it in Computer Science, Mechanical Maths, Pure Mathematics and Physics.
One leaner got 18, another has 16 while 9 leaners recorded 15 points, 4 leaners have 14 points, 15 have 13 points and 12 with 12 points
