Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha Wednesday released the 2019 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination results.
Buluma Wabuko Tony from Kapsabet Boys High School was the top student after recording an A plain of 87.159 points. Notably, Buluma was among the top candidates in the KCPE exam of 2015 with 433 marks at St. Thomas Aquinas, Nakuru.
CS Magoha said a total of 627 students scored A plain, a significant increase from 315 last year.
“The results show massive improvement compared to what has been witnessed in three years. Our teachers are engaging the candidates better. I can therefore say there was no leakage,” Magoha said.
He said results of 1,309 candidates were canceled due to exam irregularities
