    Msv tops A Level results as Pamushana, Dewure shine

    •  Ndarama High tops boarding schools' league


    MASVINGO – Pamushana in Bikita and Dewure High School in Gutu are the toast of this year's Zimbabwe Schools Examination Council A Level results after two of their students got six straight As', smashing an old record of 29 points for the examining board and setting a new record of 30 points.
    They are the best two students in the country.
    This is the first time in the history of Zimsec that a student has notched 30 points. The best record of 29 points was achieved by Munashe Elton Mandizvidza of St Faith in Rusape, Manicaland in the November 2015 exams.
    Nicky Dhlamini, Zimsec spokesperson confirmed the new records.
    While Manicaland has dominated O and A Level results for some years now, Masvingo has firmly placed itself at the top this year by smashing two records, the highest points ever and the best female student which went to Gokomere with 24 points in the sciences.
    2018 is a year of two Tapiwas.
    Tapiwa Chiwara Marinda of Dewure High got six straight As' in Maths, Further Mathematics, Physics, Biology, Chemistry and Geography and his colleague Tapiwa Dziviriri of Pamushana got straight As in Accounts, Chemistry, Maths, Physics, Further Mathematics and Geography.
    There are 49 494 students who sat for the Zimsec November 2017 A Level examinations.
    Rumbidzai Zhou of Gokomere scored 24 points with As in Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology and a B in Further Mathematics, making her the best female student in the country.
    Masvingo Provincial Education Director, Zedias Chitiga expressed excitement at the results. He was particularly happy that the province had the best results in the country.
    "We are still compiling the statistics to come up with the provincial pass rate, but I am very excited with the results especially the two from Pamushana and Dewure who got 30 points each," said Chitiga.
     "There are only two students with 30 points in the whole country and this is the first time in the history of Zimsec that such results have been realised. Both students are from Masvingo," said Dhlamini
    However, this is not the first time that 30 points have been achieved in the country. Emmanuel Zhou of Riverton in Masvingo got 30 points in the 2015 examinations but these were Cambridge examinations.
