After the completion of secondary education, students are expected to join institution of higher learning in various campus across the world.
Top candidates are automatically privileged to study good courses since they have no limit on the minimum grade criteria.
Below is an past story of a top KCSE candidate who regretted his campus life after scoring a straight A plain.
Andrew Mwengwa made it to the national newspapers in 2000 after he completed high school with grade A plain. He was ranked position 16 countrywide.
He got an offer to join Moi University to pursue Bachelor of medicine and Surgery.
His sad encounter with campus life began when he was suspended for engaging in alcoholism and drug abuse. He stayed at home for 5 years and went back to the campus.
" I overstayed at home for 5 years and went back in 2010 but I didn't stop taking alcohol and other drugs. I didn't concentrate with my education, hence, I had to desert ." he narrated during an interview in the past years.
" For the 15 years my A plain was regarded by everybody in the society as a useless and as a wasted brain and that is when I started life afresh." he said.
After wasting 15 years at home because of drug addiction he was rehabilited and continued with his studies.
Mwengwa encouraged the youth to be disciplined and shun behaviors that could lead to time wastage.
