It’s a sigh of relief for Samoei Boys’ Secondary School, which has achieved remarkable success with the release of withheld Kenya Certificate of Secondary School (KCSE) exam results.
The school located in Nandi County has secured the second position, closely trailing Kapsabet Boys’ Secondary School, despite the delayed release of the KCSE results.
The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) recently released results of samoei boys and Tachasis girls for which had been withheld for two weeks after the official release overseen by Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu.
All 292 candidates from Samoei Boys’ Secondary School in Nandi Hills successfully qualified for university admission.
The school principal, Kiptoo Kimosop praised the dedication, commitment, and hard work exhibited by the 2023 class.
The school’s impressive mean score of 9.6 positioned them in second place, with Kapsabet Boys leading with a mean of 10.2.
“We thank God for the sterling performance of the students. We look forward to greater KCSE results this year,” stated Kimosop in an interview with our media team.
In a similar situation, St. Mary Taachasis Girls in Tinderet constituency which had their results withheld, posted a mean score of 7.9 in this year’s KCSE results.
Cardinal Otunga Mosocho High School in Kisii county has also received all the results of 50 candidates whose results were initially withheld.
The results were suspended by the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) over allegations of involvement in examination irregularities.
Chief Principal Albert Ombiro revealed that during the announcement of the examination results on January 8 by Education CS Ezekiel Machogu, 50 out of 433 candidates reported that their results were missing.
The school management immediately made inquiries with KNEC, which assured them it would address the issue.
From the results, six candidates scored a mean grade of A plain, 60 attained A minus, 137 achieved B plus, 203 scored B plain, and 26 received B-minus, marking the lowest grade in the school.
