Brian Ndung’u Njenga from Mang’u High School has emerged the seventh (7th) best candidate in this year’s KCSE with a straight A of an enviable performance index of 87.259, just 0.385 behind the top student who scored 87.644.

Brian was second best in Kiambu County, only trailing Christine Mel from Alliance Girls High School who scored an A of 87.274.

Mang’u High also produced another top candidate in Anthony Maina Njoroge who was ranked position 12 countrywide with an aggregate of A of 87.061. Two other students from the school featured in the top 100 in positions 65 and 86.

Speaking at the school after the announcement of the results, Principal Abraham Githuka hailed this year’s performance as their best in the last three years with 316 out of the total 330 candidates who sat for the 2018 KCSE qualifying for university admission.

“This year’s performance is the best compared to the past three years. We have 16 straight As, 98 A- and 88 B+. Last year we had only 3 As,” explained Mr. Githuka.

He attributed the good performance to hard work amongst the students and teachers as well as a mutual understanding between the teaching staff, parents and other stakeholders.

When asked about his plans after these results, Brian said that he hopes to pursue a degree in Material Science, preferably from a university in Japan.

He said that even though he expected to perform well, this position came as a surprise to him as he never expected to be ranked among the top 10 best students in the country.

“He has never been top of his class ever since he joined Mang’u High School. In fact, he only came second once in his class, otherwise he used to sail around the first 5 positions,” explained Brian’s father Mr. Peter Njenga who is the deputy principal at Gituru day secondary School in Murang’a County.
