On Monday, Education CS George Magoha released the 2020 KCSE results eliciting a wave of celebrations across the country for those who passed and a feeling of discontentment for those who didn’t do well.
The big question now is ‘What next?’. The sad reality is that most of the students who are leaving high school either don’t know what to do after form four or make rush decisions that will affect their future career lives immensely.
As much as academic education is massively important, the reality is passing examinations is not a guarantee for success and good life. And conversely, failing KCSE exams does not mean it’s all doom and gloom in life.
All that matters now are not the grades you have attained but what value you will add to society with the experiences you will attain along the way.
For those who scored less than their desired grades, let no one discourage you. Your life should not be defined by a mere result slip.
There are several diploma and certificate courses that can equip you with more technical skills that are relevant to the job market than most degree courses.
For those who excelled, congratulations! Take your time to choose the most suitable course that fits your passion and career aspirations lest you regret pursuing a degree course that is neither interesting to you nor marketable after graduation.
