Simiyu Robinson Wanjala from Murang’a High School has been announced as the best candidate nationally scoring 87.334.

He was followed by Wasonga Allan Udoma and Sharon Chepng’eno who came second with 87.173 points. 

In a jovial address to the public, Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha said the class of 2020 has progressed from the class of 2019.


143,140 people were qualified to attend university as opposed to 125,747 in 2019.

Addressing the issue of parents discouraging children who score minimal grades, CS Magoha said the government will do everything in its power to admit all students to secondary schools.

Cheruiyot Bett Dennis, who scored 140 in the KCPE but just a B- in the KCSE, was the most improved candidate.

KUPPS will enroll all 747,171 students in higher education and tertiary schools, according to CS Magoha.
