Brief Analysis of KCSE Results

Maranda High School, Nyanza, took the top spot at the 2011 KCSE Results, climbing three positions from the fourth position in the 2010 KCSE results. This year’s number four was Starehe which managed to get back itself back onto the list under Alliance High School (second place) and Alliance Girls(third). Moi High School Kabarak was the best among private schools.2,927 candidates, from 154 schools, had their results cancelled due to cheating where out of the 47 counties only 11 reported no cases of cheating. Only one county, Kirinyaga, had a larger number of girls sitting for the exam than boys. While candidates excelled in Kiswahili, English was poorly performed.

A Word to KNEC

The KNEC website has been down for quite. While the millions of visits may be overwhelming for any server, it’s not the reason their website is down. It’s not visits but simple php/mysql connection error that has put them out. Something that could that no more than 5 minutes and 2 lines of code to fix. That is just disappointing.

KNEC’s Web-Malfunction

This is one of KNEC’s busiest weeks, getting someone to prepare your system beforehand should not be that hard. The services people require are not even that much, so am sure getting a web developer is not a problem, if it is; some of us would be willing to help out a cause. It’s not cool that year after year, your site never learns. This is my advice, hire web developers to build you a good site. Better even, let them create a solid API for the rest of us to use, and develop applications to share the info elsewhere – relieving your servers. Seriously.

    really whats the problem with kenyans?when results come out the same computer should be used to post the result to the internet for easy access.this should be instant.come on guys dont just get stuck with the mediocre policies of past centuries.

    seriously i want to check the results of my daughter but these guys will need another week before they can be shown which button to press so that the computer can be powered.seek advice even from the britishers since you will never learn to do things.kenya is still backwards.this is frustrating enough.I promise i WILL NOT WORK WITH PEOPLE LIKE THIS IF I WERE IN KENYA.THEY WILL RUN AWAY FROM WORK OR THEY WILL KILL ME”
