November 2017 Zimbabwe School Examination Council (Zimsec) Ordinary level results were released yesterday and will be ready for collection on Monday, with the examinations board indicating that English language paper 1 had better quality results compared to the November 2016 paper. Zimsec said the pass rate had gone up by five percent. The increase is despite the nullification of English language paper 2 examination results by the high court after it leaked. Officially announcing the release of the results yesterday, Zimsec board chairman Proffessor Mwenje said English language was graded on one paper as ruled by the High court. Total candidates who wrote five or more subjects were 189 684 and 49982 obtained grade C or better in five or more subjects, yielding a 26.35 percent pass rate. There is a slight decrease on the performance of year 2016 which was 27.92 percent.
