Preview into 2009 KCSE
Central Kenya’s Mang’u High School’s Master David Ndung’u Gathuku was the national champion of 2009 Form Four examinations.
The best girl in the examination was Grace Wambui Njung’e of Rift Valley’s Moi Girl’s High School, Eldoret, who scored 87.16014 and was ranked 11 nationally.
Gathuku had a mean score of 87.26857, and was followed by Maseno School’s Trevor Mokaya Omangi who had a mean score of 87.25143. The top score was a slight improvement over 2008’s best mark of 87.26757 by Alliance School’s Mark Nyauma Maugo.
Njung’e was followed by Eastern Province’s Precious Blood Secondary School, Kilungu, girl, Doris Mbabu Mwendwa who was ranked 13, with a mean score of 87.15414. It was a dismal performance for girls as boys literally ran away with the top ten slots nationally.
In the 2009 examinations, girls’ schools performed poorly.
Mang’u High produced the best candidate in the 2009 class while the female best performer hailed from Rift Valley’s Moi Girls Eldoret.
Alliance Boys High School had 102 of its candidates scoring a mean grade of ‘A’ Plain.
The second best student was from Maseno School followed by Starehe Boys Centre’s candidate.
No girl made it to the top ten list in 2009.
Instead, Njunge Grace Wambui of Moi Girls High School Eldoret, shared the 11th position with K’Oyoo Odhiambo Joseph of Maseno School.
Mbabu Doris Mwendwa assumed position 13 to seal the list of the two girls who competed with boys for the top 20 slots countrywide.
