O levels Results Out but 680 candidates’ results withheld !!!


Some 680 candidates from nine secondary schools in Midlands linked to alleged leaking of examination question papers last year will not get their Ordinary Level results as investigations continue.The papers that leaked were for Geography and Integrated Science.

At a media conference yesterday, Primary and Secondary Education Minister Lazarus Dokora said, “Following the case of the Manunure teacher’s case who was involved in the alleged leak of the Geography and Integrated Science question papers, the results of up to 680 candidates  were embargoed to allow for further investigations to take place.”
The centres are Marathon Academy, Mbizo, Manunure, Amaveni, Globe and Phoenix, Kwekwe, Mambo, Zesa Munyati and Chituripasi secondary schools.  In November 2013, a Zimsec official said they would only decide whether or not to re-set the papers after investigations.
Geography Paper 2 and Integrated Science Paper 2 are believed to have leaked, affecting at least six secondary schools in Gweru and Kwekwe.
A school head at Njeremoto Secondary in Sesombe Resettlement area in Zhombe, Vimbai Manaka (39), and five teachers from different schools in Kwekwe Urban and Gweru were arrested.
