NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 29 — Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has released this year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exam results at the Shimo la Tewa High School in Mombasa.
He has reported that there were 141 As this year which are less than the number of As some schools scored last year.
He has also reported that 16 out of the 20 top students this year were girls and singled out the Alliance Girls High School and the Kenya High School for consistently posting credible results.
On account of the stringent measures put in place to curb cheating, 15.41 per cent of those who sat the exam scored a C+ and above.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has in the meantime directed the Kenya National Examinations Council to cease use of index numbers and instead assign unique identifiers to students at registration which they can use throughout.
