Mt Kenya Girls Shine in KCSE Exams

Girls schools in Mt Kenya region edged out their male counterparts from top positions in the just-released Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations.


An analysis of the results released on Wednesday shows that the region also had more girls in school than boys.

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha said Meru, Tharaka-Nithi, Murang’a, Nyandarua and Kirinyaga were among 17 counties with more girls than boys in school.

In Tharaka-Nithi, Chogoria Girls topped the county with a mean grade of 8.3 points.

Ikuu Boys High School came second with 8.1 points, while Kiurani Boys Secondary School, a sub-county school, beat the odds to emerge third with 7.8 points, overshadowing giants such as Chogoria Boys High school and Chuka Boys High School with 7.4 points and 7.6 respectively.

In Nyeri, Bishop Gatimu Ngandu Girls posted a mean score of 8.9 points from the 7.9 in 2018.

Syllabus Completed

Stella Maris Othaya Girls also improved its performance after its top candidate scored an A- up from last year’s best grade of B+.

Principal Jane Wacheke Kimiti was recently named Principal of the Year by the Education ministry.

Kagumo High School was the best performer in Nyeri County with 9.0 points.

Principal Cyrus Mwirigi said they were not surprised by the results because they completed the syllabus well ahead of time in March.

Mahiga Girls had a mean score of 8.1 up from 8.1 in 2018. The school had 11 A- and 45 B+ grades.

In Summary

Mugoiri Girls Principal Muthoni Rutere attributed the success to discipline, hard work and cooperation between the board and the parents.

In Kirinyaga, Baricho Boys emerged top beating erstwhile academic giants.

The school had seven straight As and 60 A- and a mean score of 8.8.
