Following the release of KCPE results by Education Minister Hon. Mutula Kilonzo, a wave of emotions swept across the country’s primary schools. The test is rigorous and examines the effort of pupils for an eight year academic period.
There were tears of joy and disillusionment immediately the results were announced. New Light Junior Academy Komarock went into jubilation after emerging number one nationally with a mean 413. Kirinyaga topped the county rankings by scoring a mean of 273 as Mandera tailed with 182.
Three pupils tied in position one countrywide after scooping 430 out of 500.They are Wachira Njomo, Boniface Mwaura, and Joy Kathure Kinoti. Boniface, who is shy, said he always led in his class and that never made him complacent despite not having a strong competitor. Kathure on the other hand hopes to join the prestigious Alliance High School and later on pursue Bachelor’s in Engineering.
