St Faiths’ student Munashe Mandizvidza came out on top after he scored 29 points in the 2015 ZIMSEC Advanced Level Exams. The 18 year old says he wants to study Actuarial Sciences.
Munashe was not allowed to register all six subjects he sat for and ended up writing Business Studies in June. He wrote the remaining five which are Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Accounting and Further Mathematics.
He studied Business Studies, Accounting and Further Mathematics alone on his own. “I worked on my own, I was not able to attend lessons for the extra subjects because the timetables clashed”, he said. He did however get assistance from his teachers towards exams.
Mandizvidza’s future looks bright as he is part of the United States Student Achievers Programmes (USAP) that promotes academically gifted students from Zimbabwe to study in America.
“I have applied for the programme and still waiting for the response. I hope I will be considered for the scholarship programme”, he said.
