Zimbabwe: Only Five Fail At ZRP High

The ZRP High School has been hailed as one of the schools in Zimbabwe that attained the best 2012 Ordinary Level results. The school in Hatcliffe had 103 pupils who sat for the public examinations and only five failed to attain five subjects.

The November 2012 Ordinary Level had only 31 767 pupils attaining passes in at least five subjects out of 172 698 who sat for the public examinations.

The pass rate translated to 18,4 percent, a drop from last year's 19,5 percent.

Commissioner General Augustine Chihuri said the results were a result of the dedication the teachers showed to their duties.

He said the school had also maintained high standards of discipline.

"This year pupils failed but not those at ZRP High School. They did well in both Ordinary and Advanced Levels and those who passed should be assisted to get places. Let's assist them even to any universities they go," he said.
