It was a song and dance at Moi High School Kabarak, Nakuru as parents and teachers joined candidates to celebrate their results in the 2023 KCSE exams.

The school Chief Principal Mrs Elisheba Cheruiyot revealed that all the 401 candidates who sat for the exam secured a direct entry to university.

“We had 62 A plains, 155 A minuses, 102 B Pluses, 60 B Plains, 18 B Minuses and 4 C Pluses. The overall mean score was 10.43 and all candidates qualify for direct entry to public universities,” said Cheruiyot.

The school head added that this was an improvement compared to the previous 2022 class when the school had a mean of 10.13 with a candidature of 351.

“This has been a gradual improvement. In 2020 we had 339 candidates with a mean of 9.6, 2021 we got a mean of 9.75 with 349 candidates. This consistency is a result of team work among our teachers and the students with the support of parents,” said Cheruiyot.

Among the top candidates at the school included Larry Mule who scored an A plain.

“I would like to join the University of Nairobi or Moi University to pursue Medicine. The results are a product of hard work, prayers and support from my peers, parents and teachers,” said Mule.

Neema Toigat, another candidate at the school who scored a mean grade of A plain also wishes to pursue the same career.

“The results are a reflection of support from many and prayers. Am an early riser and am glad the school has a programme that allows for those who study better in the morning to do so starting as early as 3:30am,” said Ms Toigat.

At Anestar Boys High School also within Nakuru county the school celebrated the performance of its 312 candidates 20 of whom scored a mean grade A Minus and above.

The top student at the school David Kiiru scored an A Plain of 83 points which he attributed to a lot of sacrifice.

“I learnt that I had excelled in the exams through a call from the school. I had to forgo a lot and dedicate most of my time to my studies. The effort has paid up,” said Kiiru.

According to the school principal Patrick Ngetich the stellar performance was a result of a disciplined class of students who were ready to collaborate with their teachers.

“This has been a very dedicated class, easy to teach and disciplined. We celebrate the performance which is proof that focus and prayer can do wonders for a group that has a common goal,” said Mr Ngetich.

Langalanga Secondary School, a mixed public day school in Nakuru East also produced candidates who are among the top nationally.

Three of its candidates scored an A plain and 18 of them A Minus. The total candidature for the school was 421.

The schools top performers John Falestine, Paul Muchiri and Doris Waithera who scored A plains of 84, 82 and 81 points respectively all wish to pursue medicine at the University of Nairobi.
