A school in Nyanza has set a record after its KCSE 2018 candidates performed brilliantly in the recently released examination results.

Each and every student who sat the exams at Orero Boys High School in Homa Bay County will head directly to the university as none of them scored below the university cut-off.

Of all the 283 candidates, two scored direct As, 36 scored A-, 83 (B+), 121 (B), 38 (B-) and 3(C+), this being an unprecedented performance in the region.

Ishmael Okoth Oketch and Odumbe Luckywillis Mwambi were the top performers. This comes as a surprise because the school has not been among the popular top performers in the region.

Expressing his happiness and satisfaction in his boys, Principal Dickens Bula attributed the same to among others, early syllabus coverage.

“Early syllabus coverage and hard work are some of the key efforts that enabled my school to get the good results,” he told the Sunday Standard.

The school lead the county with a mean grade of 9.4134.

A total of 90, 377 students hit the university admission threshold after scoring C+ and above countrywide.

The CS called upon students who did not reach the university threshold to embrace the technical training institutions across the nation.
