Education Committee Emergence Cabinet Secretary for Education Ezekiel Machugo issued the statements to MPs sitting on the Education Committee chaired by Julius Miele as he appeared to shed light on whether there were screening irregularities in last year’s examination and also set the record straight, saying It is against notes that Nyambaria High School in Nyamira County added marks, and only managed 28As.
“It is important to note that as a national school, Nyambaria High School accepts schools from the same group with other national schools such as Alliance Boys High School, Starehe Boys Center and Mang’u High School,” he said.
He added, “Naturally, candidates at the school should be expected to compete favorably with their peers from other national schools. Moreover, since 2008, the school has recorded an exponential growth in its performance. In 2019, the school had an average grade of 7.96 that grew to 8.75 in 2020.
In 2021, she posted an average grade of 8.24. The principal transferred from Maranda High School in 2018, where he even posted a grade point average of 11.3 in KSCE 2011.”
According to the documents, the percentage of candidates with A minus and above was less than 1% from 1989 to 2001 and is similar to the years 2016 to 2022 when reforms were made to the examination management system.
In his presentation, Machugo told MPs that the highest cumulative percentages for grades A and A were achieved in 2020.
“Particularly, with the exception of the 2020 KCSE exam, there is wastage in students’ registration of quality grades in KCPE and performance mismatches in KCSE. In 2018 especially, 1.16 per cent of KCPE candidates obtained distinction, i.e. minus and above.
