Reprieve For Oriwo Boys High School As KNEC Finally Releases Withheld KCSE Results

Candidates who sat for the 2021 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) at Oriwo Boys High School in Rachuonyo, Homa Bay County, have finally received their results more than a month after the official release.

The results for all KCSE students at the school were withheld by the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) for 30 days.

KNEC Chief Executive Officer David Njengere had issued a notice to the school indicating that their results were withheld on suspicion that they could have engaged in examination irregularities.

More than 500 candidates who sat for the examination and the entire school fraternity now have a reason to smile after receiving the results on Friday evening.

The school principal Maurice Okal confirmed to Citizen Digital that no candidate had their results canceled.

Mr. Okal said that although they are still downloading the results before giving a comprehensive report on the overall performance of all the 549 candidates, 521 have attained university entry points.

He revealed that overall, the school managed to clock a mean grade of 8.215 with only 28 students failing to meet the threshold of C plus and above.

Ten students scored A-minus, 61 B plus, 152 B plain, 167 B minus and 130 C+, 26 C and 2 C –.
