Prof. Magoha during the release, assured that all candidates who sat for the 2020 examinations will be admitted to secondary school to further their studies. Some students who may have failed to score good marks may not seem to be satisfied, with many thinking that this was their end of the road, but here's a testimony from one of Kenya’s Sons who had scored 297 Marks and ended up pursuing BSC. Acturial Science in one of Kenya’s top Universities.
To him, KCSE is the most important exam in life. In that he implies that, the marks you get in Primary School, doesn't count much like what you will get in Secondary School. So, know that, effort and determinations will be your success. There's hope after Primary school, the future is bright.
THIS IS THE REAL STORY OF PETER MAYA as shared on facebook
Read my small life story in EDUCATION,from scoring 297 marks to Bachelor Of Science In Actuarial Science.
I remember when I was in Primary School I scored 297 marks only and I was so proud of my results.
Though my Grandfather expected me to score good marks(390+) since I was a bright student from Nursery School to Standard 8,no one would take my number 1 or 2 position in the classroom but when I did my KCPE exams I failed terribly by scoring 297 marks though I don't regret it,sijui kashetani kalitoka wapi.
My Sweetheart Biological Mother gave me good foundation which led my Class teacher to "jump" me from Class One to Class 3. So I didn't attend any classes in standard 2.
My Grandfather insisted that I must repeat in class 8 in order to score good marks,he(Grandfather) had already talked with my headteacher not to send me home because of Kshs 300-500(School arrears),the headteacher and my senior teacher(who was my uncle in that school by then) agreed to pay for me and do the necessary so long us I will get GOOD marks.
I denied their offer and went on to High School with my 297 marks,in High school I worked hard with "machungu" and no one would take my number 1 position since I joined form 1 to form four term 2. When I did my KCSE EXAMS I scored strong B- which I was supposed to join University.
From Nursery School up to form 4 I had no girlfriend,my grandfather and my mother were tough.
When I told my grandfather that I have scored B- he was happy but so angry with me. "How can those students defeat you? You have been leading them with your number 1 position from form 1 to form 4" my grandfather said to me.By the way I never scored less than 850 marks in high school,I have the records.

My grandfather told my uncle that; my grandson must repeat form 4,they hold a small Kamukunji with me, we talked and we agreed that I will go back to school. Remember that my grandfather wanted me to work in bank and get sponsored by Equity Bank.
I decided to back to school in the second term of that academic year,to cut the story short I got a GOOD grade which enabled/helped me to pursue Bachelor Of Science In Actuarial Science in a recognized University In Kenya.
To those who scored less marks per their expectations,don't feel bad or regret it.NO! Go to High school and put more extra efforts,you will make it.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not
