All candidates from a primary school whose top KCPE pupil scored 110 marks out of the possible 500 have been selected to join the same secondary school.
The pupils from Chingondi Primary School in Bomet County were selected to join Muiywek Secondary School.
“In what appears to be fate binding them together for another four years, they have been called to join one secondary school (Muiywek) which is in the neighbourhood,” said a senior teacher at the school.
The second-best posted 107, followed by another with 106. The bottom student scored 44.
Reports say that the candidates scored similar results in mathematics, social studies and religion. These were the most affected subjects. In mathematics, except for two candidates who scored 26 and 19 marks, respectively, the other 15 posted 17.
Over the past few years, candidates who scored poorly in KCPE have been recording university grades in KCSE. The latest to do this is Najma Mohammed who had scored 113 marks in KCPE. Najma went on to score a grade of B plain in KCSE 2021.
