The Zimbabwe School Examination Council (ZIMSEC) has released the November 2021 Ordinary level results, the public exam body announced on Tuesday.

ZIMSEC spokesperson Nicky Dhlamini said heads of schools and examination centres were able to collect the results for their respective centres from regional offices from Wednesday, 13 April 2022.

“The Zimbabwe School Examinations Council would like to announce that the ordinary level results for 2021 December have been released. Heads of centres are able to collect their results from their respective schools or centres from our regional offices on Wednesday, the 13th of April,” she said.

Dlamini said candidates were able to access their results on the ZIMSEC online results portal from Tuesday (12 April) starting from 4 pm.

She said that the overall percentage pass rate was 26.34 per cent.

“The total number of candidates who sat for the November 2021 examinations was 249 914 and of these 163 179 candidates wrote five or more subjects. 42 985 passed five or more subjects with Grade C or better, giving an overall percentage pass of 26.34 per cent. “

Dlamini said the 2021 pass rate increased by 1.57% compared to that of 2020 and attributed the slightly better pass rate to a longer school calendar and learning strategies introduced by the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education.

Last year`s examinations were written between December 1, 2021 and January 31, 2022.
