This is the help and quick introduction section

If you have questions such as what, who, where, why and how relating to the revision online website this is the place to start. Please read these frequently asked questions and their answers before getting in touch with any such questions. Asking questions that are already answered here will result in you and your questions being ignored.

We are very aware of this. Starting from November 2018 the final examination will compose 70% of your final grade. Students are also required to complete tasks. The material on this site will help those doing both the outgoing and incoming syllabus. Subject titles will be changed in due course to reflect the new curriculum.
We are constantly updating the content and it just means we have not yet come to that topic. We will eventually add it so please be patient
We have decided to concentrate on providing high quality notes and revision material. Question papers can be easily obtained from your school teachers or ZIMSEC offices. You bring the questions and our site will provide you with the answers.
No you cannot download the few question papers on this site due to copyright reasons. You can however browse through them on this site in preparation for your final examination. ZIMSEC sells past exam papers at their offices at a cost of $2 per paper.
We don’t sell notes or papers at the moment nor will we ever will. Question papers are available at ZIMSEC and most schools please consult your teachers for these
We are constantly adding new topics and exams as fast as we can but if you are sure there is topic/exam not yet available please wait for it. We are inundated with requests at the moment and your patience will be appreciated. You can get in touch with use via the following means
or Email [email protected] . You will have to be patient, this site is for the long haul and it will take time for us to complete topics for each subject.

There are many reasons for this.

Reason 1
This is an ad supported initiative. We need money to keep the site running and to pay for the internet costs which run into hundreds of dollars per month alone and to source the material that we use. The site does not bring much money but it goes a long way in defraying these costs.

Proof that our strategy is sound is that we used to have many rivals that have since gone under because they could not handle the cost. We need to make sure we carefully balance students needs with ours too.

Reason 2

This is one of the things that we are trying to avoid.

This is one of the things that we are trying to avoid.

Once we allow people to download these notes they will quickly proliferate and start photocopying them. People will not visit the site as often as they should and we will die just like our rivals. There are students who will need this site next year what will they do?

Reason 3

Those who want to download these notes because they do not have access to reliable internet should just use traditional methods of studying just like they have always done. I went to school not so long ago and we had no internet. Yes I got 15 points without Google!

Reason 4

Allowing people to download papers violates ZIMSEC’s copyrights; possibly according to our reading of their copyrights. If you want the papers ZIMSEC sells them at $2 a copy. Think of our site as something like YouTubeSpotify, Hulu and Netflix. You can view or listen as much as you want but you cannot download the song. We are going to be creating a Spotify like app that allows you to save the files for offline use but does not allow you to keep them indefinitely as you seem to want to do.

Reason 5

The content is always changing so allowing people to keep a single hard copy is like letting them have a physical copy of an antivirus. It is bound to get out of date soon.

I could go on but I think you get the picture.

Hope you found this useful
