ORDINARY and Advanced Level pupils will from 2018 be graded on the basis of combined marks for continuous assessment and final examinations in keeping with provisions of the updated education curriculum.
Grade Seven pupils will be subjected to the new system from 2021.
Primary and Secondary Education Secretary Dr Sylvia Utete-Masango said the Zimbabwe School Examinations Council was finalising modalities for implementing the policy.
According to the new rules, pupils who would have failed examinations will be required to supplement within two years, after which one would be forced to go back to class if failing persists.
The new education framework for O and A-Level says learners’ grades will be based on 40 percent theoretical examinations, 30 percent practical examinations and 30 percent continuous assessment.
For Grade Seven examinations, final grades will be determined by 50 percent continuous assessment and 50 percent examinations.
