The Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (Zimsec) has written to the headmaster of Chingele Secondary School in Chiredzi to advise him that all candidates from his school had their results for Combined Science withheld, with results for nine candidates cancelled.

The headmaster, probably as a result of a misunderstanding or communication errors, failed to abide by the instructions in the letter and instead released the said results. Now ZIMSEC has written to the nine affected candidates instructing them to return their provisional results slips.

Provisional results for candidates from Chingele were deployed to the school on February 12, 2020. The nine candidates were given their results by an administrator who had not been informed of the situation. As of now, the nine candidates have been asked to return their provisional slips as they await the confirmed result slips which show that their results have been cancelled.
