Ms Kato said the results posted by the school are better but more is needed, however, she said the nature of the results can as well be attributed to #Covid-19 that made it hard for the education sector to operate freely.
KPS is a pioneer of private primary education in the country and has always maintained its dominance in examinations.
A total of 832,654 candidates from 14,691 centers registered for PLE. of those, 114,617 (14.1%) passed in first grade. At least 583,786 pupils who sat PLE were from the Universal Primary Education and 249,041 were non-UPE candidates.
More than 51.9 percent of the total registered candidates were females and 48.1 percent were males.
The males performed better than the females and recorded a lower failure rate overall. 60,070 (15.4%) of the males were in Division one compared to the 54,547 (12.9%) of females.
“The girls have always beaten the boys in English but then the latter surface above the former in the other subjects. This is a trend we have observed over the years,” said the Chairperson UNEB Prof. Mary Okwakol, adding that although the COVID-19 pandemic appeared to have eased compared to what it was in 2021, the board faced another challenge occasioned by the outbreak of Ebola in some parts of the country.
