Those who scored more than 400 marks in the recent exams have been assured of places in the national schools.
Candidates registered improvement in six of the nine papers, including English Composition, Kiswahili Language, Kiswahili Insha, Sign Language Composition, Science and Social Studies.
Private schools outshone their public peers on rankings on top students, taking 13 of the top 14 places. The top candidate scored 428 marks, a drop from the 433 marks recorded the previous year when the exams were written in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“The mean average performance and quality of grades is higher compared to 2020, an indicator that most candidates got better scores than the previous year,” Prof Magoha said when he released the results on Monday.
