MOYO’S STEM PUPILS FLUNK EXAMS
The majority of Prof Jonathan Moyo’s STEM students flunked their 2017 Advanced Level examinations.
Some 2 000 STEM pupils failed to attain three points, while 385 scored zero. Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education statistics, show that 35 percent of the sponsored students failed to get even a point, 19 percent passed two subjects, and nine percent passed one subject.
ZIMDEF paid tuition, boarding and examination fees since 2016 to promote Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Physical Science and Biology when Professor Jonathan Moyo was still in charge.
Higher Education Minister Professor Amon Murwira said, “We are still analysing the results but the failure rate is too high for sponsored students. We do not expect failure from a sponsored programme.
He attributed the dismal results to a poor student selection criteria.
