In Kenya, whenever the secondary schools national examinations are released, more than fifty percent of the candidates often fail to secure a chance to the university. Reporta have been m,ade of students committing suicie and parents getting angry and maybe punishing their children for 'allegadly failing' in the national exams.
It is important to not that after KCSE, students may take on 2-year courses ar TVETs or colleges and get introduced into the market earlier than those pursuing degree courses. This is an economic advantage since they get the chance to do investments ealier.
As a matter of fact, many people have been successful despite massive failure in KCSE. The most recent story is that of Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan who scored Grade D+ but still managed to succeed in life even more than some of his classmates who secured a chance at the University. When he was interviewed over the matter, he said that he is proud of his Grade.
