    1. This isn’t the grand observation you think it is. ZIMSEC was established in the mid 90s right? Most people who went to school during 80s & 90s had “GCSE level education”.

      1. And, what does the change to ZIMSEC, have to do with speaking English?

        You have missed the point.

        You cannot reach GCSE level, barely speaking English. Nursing also requires one to have passed English.

        1. Spoken English and written English are distinctly different things.

          I could run circles around English speakers, thanks to being well read… but you would ask me to speak and laugh at the way I pronounced a great number of words.

          So, Mr Know-it-All, you’re actually clueless of what you assert to be logic
