    MASVINGO – Runyararo Primary, a traditionally average school has pulled a surprise by producing what are arguably the best 2018 Zimsec Grade 7 results for Masvingo Province.
    The five dominant schools in the results using several factors are Runyararo, Gokomere, Zimuto, Victoria Primary and Vurombo.
    Runyararo which is in Mucheke High Density Suburb in Masvingo has the highest number of candidates in the Province with 5 units at 17; the third highest number with 6 units at 29; the highest number with 7 units at 30; the highest number with 8 units at 27 and the highest number with 9 units at 19  candidates.
    Runyarararo has 138 candidates who got between five and nine units which is far higher than the second placed Gokomere which has 99 students. The third placed school is Vurombo with 92 students while Victoria Primary is on fourth with 75 students. Dunuza from Chiredzi which had the highest number of candidates for any school in Masvingo is on number five with 68 candidates.
    Rujeko Primary in Rujeko High Density has 63 candidates with between five and nine units making it the sixth best school in that ranking.  At number seven is Francis Aphiri with 56 candidates, there are two schools tied at number 8 and they are Helen Mcghie and Shakashe with 50 candidates each.
    Two schools are also tied at number 10 with 48 candidates each and these are Tshovani and Shingai both in Chiredzi.
    Two schools which have traditionally dominated the results but appear to be finding the going tough are Shakashe Primary and Helen Mcghie which both slid to position 8 if one uses the number of candidates with five to nine units as the yardstick.
    In terms of quality, Zimuto though with a much smaller number of candidates appear to have the best results. The school which had a total of 52 candidates has 14 of them or 26,9% getting five units. Forty candidates or 80% got between 5 and 9 units.
    Zimuto also got an overall 100% pass rate. The only other dominant school that got 100% is Gokomere. The pass rates of 10 other schools that got 100% pass rate can be attributed to their small classes of as little as four candidates.
    In the past two years, Gokomere got up to 44 candidates with four units in the Grade 7 results. This was at the time that students were sitting for four subjects.
    Runyararo has the highest number of candidates who sat for Grade 7 in 2017 with 391 students. Victoria Primary had 198 candidates, Gokomere 147 and Dunuza 243.
