Poll: Zimbabwe O’level requirements


The Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development Professor Jonathan Moyo has said his ministry will not allow students to enrol in tertiary institutions without passing Mathematics at Ordinary Level.

“…I’ve been amazed by the number of requests I’m getting from students when I interact with the public. They’re saying they want to be excused from Mathematics because they’ve done subjects that have nothing to do with the subject.

“Enough is enough. We don’t think it should be possible to produce an educated person who has no Mathematics at O-Level,” said Prof Moyo.
