KCSE Results Are Available

Results for the KCSE (Kenyan Certificate of Secondary Education) Exam taken in November by our 2013 Form 4 students have been released!  Sponsors can find results under the “Files” section in the private Yahoo Group (click on “KCSE Results”).

The KCSE Exam determines eligibility for admission to university, technical, and vocational schools.  Obtaining the KCSE is also important for students who are unable to continue their education, as it is required for most of the better-paying jobs in Kenya, including those in offices and the tourism industry. 

We are very proud of the Class of 2013, which performed quite well on the KCSE Exam.  Approximately half of the WHS students taking the KCSE Exam obtained a score of C+, which is the minimum grade required for entry to universities in Kenya.  In comparison, across Kenya only 27.46% of candidates achieved this score.  In addition, we are pleased to see that a number of WHS students earned scores high enough to qualify for university tuition subsidies.  For most of our students, qualifying for subsidized tuition is the only way that they can afford to attend university.

Thank you to all of our sponsors and supporters who donated to our KCSE Exam Fee drive to make taking this exam possible for our Form 4 students!
