Grade 7 Results Post 100% Countrywide Pass Rate

All the 388,331 candidates who sat for the grade seven composite examinations have been selected to grade 8, bringing the national progression rate to 100 percent from 99.14 recorded in 2017.


Ministry of General Education David Mabumba has however revealed that out of 388,442 candidates that sat for the 2018 grade seven examination, 239,024 candidates obtained divisions, 1, 2 and 3 representing 61.53 of the total candidates that sat the examination.


Speaking during a media briefing in Lusaka today, Mr. Mabumba adds that a total of 149,307 candidates obtained divisions 4.


Mr. Mabumba explained that a further analysis of the results along the lines of gender revealed that boys performed better than girls in all subjects except the English Language.


Meanwhile Mr. Mabumba is concerned with the 55,258 candidates who were absent from examination.


The Minister has reiterated that in 2019 the Ministry will focus on implementing reforms in order to address challenges facing the education sector.

      Its good encouragement to teachers and parents in return.
      The time of releasing results is good but next time allow it much earlier so that parents plan well during the festivals.

    Comment the percentage for the pupils is good but now the challenge is teachers are provided with shallom information due to the revised of the curriculum so the ministry of general education must
    check if the curriculum is ok and in rural areas teachers are few

    Grade 7 depends on the number of grade8 places available in a particular year.Private schools must be commended for effectively contributing to the creation of more grade8 places. They reserve government assistance in terms of teaching and learning requisites Well done all grade 7, 2018 teachers in both pvty and public schools!!

    everybody keeps on congratulating da teachers, but I don’t think we thank da teachers for preparing our students well, but for giving our children leakages. in my opinion i think this passing is not genuine. we shud all b concerned coz our education standards keep on deteriorating coz of leakages.
