ZIMBABWE School Examinations Council (ZIMSEC) has today released the November 2020 Advanced level results.

There was a 2.1% decrease in pass rate from 83% pass rate recorded in November 2019 results.

Collection of result slips will commence tomorrow, Friday and can also be accessed online on the ZIMSEC portal which will open for five days.

“It is important to remind the nation that the delays in the writing, marking, publication were as a result of mitigation measures put in place to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.

“The total number of candidates who sat for the Nov 2020 examinations was 50 287, compares to 51 862 in 2019, this entry decreased by 3 per cent.

“The number of candidates that wrote two or more subjects in the November 2020 examination was 49 153. Out of this number, 39 802 obtained Grade E or better in two or more subjects, translating to an 81.2 per cent pass rate.

“There is 81 per cent pass rate which has seen a 2.1% decrease from that of 2019 which was 83%,” said ZIMSEC board chairperson, Professor Eddie Mwenje.

While ordinarily the A-level results are released at the end of January, the November 2020 were delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic.

In March disgruntled examiners downed tools demanding better remuneration for marking further delaying the release of the results.
