Traditional big names in the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination (KCSE) recorded mixed results in the 2022 results announced on Friday 20 January.
Despite the Ministry of Education’s decision to eschew the ranking system and name the top individual performers, a review of the results found that some national schools faced stiff competition from provincial schools.
Here are four schools that performed exceptionally well in the 2022 KCSE exams;
Nyambaria High School – Nyamira
