MASVINGO – It is a clean sweep for Kwenda High School Whizzkid.
Bryn Mugozhi (19) got 25 points in the five A Level science subjects that he sat for in November last year.
He got five straight As’ in Pure Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mechanical Mathematics. He is now appealing for sponsorship to study Mechatronics Engineering abroad.
Mugozhi is one of the best A Level Zimsec students for the 2020 examinations at Kwenda Mission High School where he was the best O Level student in 2018 with 10As and a B.
He says following tutorials on YouTube helped him immensely. When asked what he attributed his success to he shot straight “to God”. He said he always give a prayer before he starts reading.
He also has a track record; he was Kwenda’s best O Level student in 2018 and he also has a certificate of merit for scoring the highest marks in Biology and Mathematics in a competition run by Bindura University of Science Education (BUSE) in 2019.
Mechatronics is a combination of mechanical and electrical engineering.
“I am appealing for a scholarship to study mechatronics engineering abroad which is my dream. I am still evaluating avionics engineering, actuarial sciences, aerospace engineering, and aviation engineering.
“I read for five extra hours every day after the mandatory two-hour study and I also watched tutorials on different subjects on YouTube which assisted me greatly. I am hoping to study in the USA, Russia, Australia or the United Kingdom (UK),” said Mugozhi.
Mugozhi was born to Joshua and Ropafadzo in 2002. His mother is a nurse at Masvingo Provincial Hospital while his father is a Policeman in Harare. He has one sibling, an older brother Bruce Mugozhi who is doing apprenticeship.
His mother said her son has always been the best student from grade 1.
He did his primary education at Hartley School in Chegutu and Grade 7 at Hartley 2 Primary school where he got five units at Grade 7. He then went for Form 1 at Kwenda where he attained 10As and a B in English.
“I want to do Mechatronics because it gives me wide area of study in both electrical and mechanical engineering. I want to be inventing new products and this is the area that will give me the necessary background to do that,” said Bryn.
His said that it is important for students to overcome distractions like watching TV and listening to music when one is supposed to be studying and added that he could study for five continuous hours without a break
