The Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (ZIMSEC) has revealed that local universities consider only 15 points as the highest points attainable at A Level, regardless of how many points the student would have scored. This was revealed when ZIMSEC commented on the fantastic results of an academic prodigy who scored a remarkable 50 points (10 As) at A Level.
Tadiwanashe Mavetera, a student at Ruya Adventist Secondary School, achieved an exceptional 50 points (10 As) at A Level, which is out of this world according to ZIMSEC. The council, which generally does not comment on student results, made an exception following Mavetera’s exceptional academic performance.
“It is out of this world to have 50 points at A-Level because even universities do not consider that. They use 15 points as the highest measure for enrolment from the standard three subjects,” ZIMSEC said.
Mavetera’s exceptional performance is a testament to his hard work and dedication, and it is a reminder of the potential of students to achieve great things if they set their minds to it. The council encouraged other students to strive for academic excellence and to not be limited by the perceived boundaries of what is possible.
In conclusion, Tadiwanashe Mavetera’s exceptional performance is a shining example of what can be achieved through hard work and determination. ZIMSEC’s comments on this remarkable achievement serve as a reminder of the potential of students to excel beyond what is considered the norm.
