      Yeah, that Legend! The guy was really talented. I love his rich shona and ndebele lyrics! These are the people who should have been buried at the national shrine, for the heroisim is undisputed.

        Hero is somebody who is admired for outstanding qualities or achievements e.g heroes of the war against poverty/ or remarkably brave person: somebody who commits an act of remarkable bravery or who has shown an admirable quality such as great courage or strength of character e.g a war hero!!
        Without taking away anything from the late talented guy. I don’t think Mr. Matavire would be exceptional, lest, the heroes acre would be filled with men and women all with some badges to show.

    27% pass rate is too low, Form 4 must be passed by all, it is now like the Standard 6 yemadzimbuya, inga vaipasa wani.

    How many candidates obtained 5 subjects including ‘STEM’ subjects?

    I still think the pass rate is still too low. I acknowledge that we have no jobs for them, at least we can teach them well. I like comparing with similar courses offered globally like the Cambridge International Examinations which has a pass rate of over 70% across all subjects. Surely, we cant say we have daft students compared to the rest of the world. Its either our teaching is bad or the exams are set too hard for the purpose.

    Yaas – Prof Moyo hamo ka munyaya iyi. So, what is the Ministry of Primary & Secondary Education doing about the apparently very low pass rate? Is Dokora on twitter – we need a heart to heart chat with him?

    Well the idea for exams at all levels (form 4, 6, etc) is screen and create a bottleneck into the next level. Imagine if pass rate went up to 60%, the current schools with A’Level do not have facilities to accommodate them. Similarly if everyone passes A’Level the universities wont be able to accommodate. Besides, not everyone should be too educated especially with such high unemployment because hapana anozoda kuita some jobs. Its natural selection.

      All schools must have A-level with O&A level intakes at same level.
