The release of this years' Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination by Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohammed sent a wave of shock, disbelief and dissatisfaction to Sing’ore Girls High Schol in Elgeyo Marakwet county.
In 2017, the extra-county school posted a mean score of 9.6 and became the top school in the country, beating longtime academic giants and national schools such as Moi High School Kabarak and Alliance Boys and Girls.
This year, the school dropped drastically and did not even appear among the top 100 schools nationally as they managed a mean score of 4.8.
Last year with 271 registered candidates Sing’ore Girls had 15 A-, 165 B+, 83 B and 8 B-. All its candidates obtained university minimum entry points. Contrary to the expectations of many, this years' results gifted the Green angles a nightmare of a Christmas as they managed 1A-, 4 B+, 11B, 11B-, 27C+, 47C, 87C-, 94D+, 57D, 10D- and 1 E.
The school administration has protested against the results and even revealed their plans to seek the audience of the ministry of education.
It is also alleged that the school received more officials and security personnel during the examination period and this might have given the girls a tensed and unfavourable environment thus making them post poor results.
The public and local residents continue to express their opinions on the matter since the school has never registered such a huge drop.
