Education CS George Magoha on Monday, May 10, released the 2020 KCSE results.
The seemingly lost boy child in the vicinity in terms of performance reclaimed their place at the top with a majority holding top positions in the just-released KCSE results.
For instance, in the top 15 candidates, a list released by the Ministry of Education, eight boys got straight A’s while seven girls got a similar grade.
Statistics privy to the public reveal that 589 boys scored A plain, 4,049 A-minus, 8, 815 B plus, 10, 275 B plain, 16, 349 B minus and 27, 075 had C plus.
In comparison, 304 girls got straight A’s, 2,371 A-minus, 5,612 B plus, 10, 275 B plain, 16, 349 B minus and 27, 075 had C plus.
Male candidates with special needs also performed better than female candidates with 59 scoring C plus and above compared with 44 females who had the same grade.
Two of the candidates with special needs obtained straight A’s, 20 had A-minus, 37 B plus, 46 B plain, 75 B minus and 103 C plus.
However, it is yet to be a smooth sail for the boys as fifteen counties had more female candidates than their male counterparts a drop from 17 counties in 2019.
This could be attributed to early or teen pregnancies experienced by the girls after the covid-19 pandemic hit the country.
Some of the 15 counties include; Taita Taveta, Kwale, Murang’a, Kiambu and Machakos.
The results are different from their 2020 KCPE candidates where girls shone in the exam with Faith Mumo emerging top with 433 marks.
In contrast with the KCSE results, female candidates topped the 2020 KCPE exam.
It is also important to note that despite the vagaries of the covid-19 pandemic that interrupted learning for the candidates for about seven months, the 2020 KCSE candidates performed better compared to their 2019 counterparts.

History was recorded yesterday after the results of the KCSE examination were released just three days after the marking exercise was completed. The CS of Education, Professor George Magoha, fulfilled his promise that the KCSE results would be released without delay.
The Education CS said the early release of exam results would prevent some school principals from collaborating with some corrupt Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) officials to favour their schools. The council has also embraced technology in implementing anti-corruption measures in exam results.
Why 2020 KCSE candidates performed well despite Covid-19
The year 2020 was challenging. We had a global pandemic – Covid-19 – that interrupted the academic calendar.
But still, our children managed to post very good results.
There are many factors that contributed to this.
