This week there was much celebration at St. Joseph's Orphanage after receiving the results of the National Exam for our Form 2 students! We are thrilled to report that Esther, Maria, Fidesta, Rose and Theresia (all of whom study at Kilasara Secondary School), as well as Denis and Karoli (all of who study at Adili Secondary School) earned Division 1 placements at the end of 2016! Kelvin received Division II, also very exciting and honorable results.
We are all so very proud these students who work so hard to reach their educational goals.
To better understand what the results mean:
Division I is awarded to candidates who (1) pass in at least seven subjects, which must include at least one subject in civics, Kiswahili, foreign languages, social sciences or technology, mathematics, natural sciences, commercial studies or home economics. (2) pass with grades of A- C in at least four subjects; and (3) reach an aggregate of not more than 17 points in the candidate's seven best subjects.
Division II is awarded to candidates who (1) pass in at least seven subjects, which must include at least one subject as listed above; (2) pass with grades of A-C in at least four subjects; and (3) reach an aggregate of not more than 21 points in the best seven subjects.
Division III and Division IV descend from the above standards.
