Traditional big names in the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination (KCSE) registered mixed results in the 2022 results announced on Friday, January 20.
Despite the decision by the Ministry of Education to shun the ranking system and that of naming the individual top performers, a review of the results showed that some national schools faced stiff competition from county schools.
Here are four schools that performed exceptionally well in the 2022 KCSE examinations;
Nyambaria High School- Nyamira
Nyambaria High School in Nyamira County staged an impressive show after registering a mean score of 10.9 in the 2022 KCSE exam.
The school registered 100 per cent transition to universities after all candidates attained the minimum grade of C+ required for enrollment.
28 candidates from the centre scored the coveted A grade while 383 of them scored an A-. As per the score sheet, the lowest candidate scored a B plan.

Still in South Nyanza, Cardinal Otunga High School in Kisii County registered an impressive mean score of 10.76 in what was described as a stellar performance.
28 candidates who wrote their national examinations at the centre scored a mean grade of A plain, while 201 scored an A minus.
