Girls Lead in English and Kiswahili in Kenyan Schools Exams

Girls have outshone their male counterparts in English Language and Kiswahili in the recently released 2018 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education Examination results.

This disclosure was made by the  Education Cabinet Secretary, Ms Amina Mohamed  at Star of the Sea Primary School in Mombas.

Ms Mohamed stated that  female candidates performed better than their male counterparts in English and Kiswahili.

"The performance, which was low in 2016, has started rising, a clear indicator that teachers are now seriously focused on their work and the candidates are working hard in class knowing that only hard work will count and not the cheating that had become common in some centres," Ms Amina  noted.

1,052,364 candidates sat for the examination, boys totaling 527,294 while girls were 525,070.

In 2017, 993,718 pupils were examined.
