CPE RESULTS: Jenifer Okello spoils boys’ party as council releases P8 results
Only one girl made it in the top 10 of the best performing students who sat the 2021 South Sudan Certificate of Primary School Examinations.
Anyango Jenifer Okello is also the only student outside Jonglei State to have sneaked in the top ten.
Anyango, who sat her P8 exams at Royal Star in Central Equatoria State, got 474 marks, making her the best girl in the country.
The exam was dominated by private schools.
No public school produced a candidate in the top ten list that was shared by 15 students.
All the other candidates came from Jonglei State.
Interestingly only three schools -Alfa junior Nursery Academy (Jonglei), St Andrew Junior Academy (Jonglei) and Royal Stars (Central Equattoria) produced the top ten students.
John Deng Anuei and Paul Mabior both of Alfa Junior Academy and Nicholas Abuk of St. Andrew Nursery Academy emerged as the best students.
They all scored 479 marks out of a possible 500.
“Nobody should be surprised that all the best schools are from private schools,” Martin Tako Moyi, Deputy Minister of General Education and Instruction said while announcing the results on Friday.
Despite Jonglei dominating the top ten with 14 out of 15 students, Unity State took the overall best performing state with a performance index score of 87.5 per cent.
Unity had registered 1717 students for the exams while Jonglei, which had 83.3 per cent index score, had 2459 students.
Great Pibor Administrative Area came in third place (77.8 per cent) followed by Warrap 5107 (76.6 pc) and Lake State with 75.8 pc index score.
Northern Bahr el Ghazal which had 4491 students was sixth (75.2 pc) followed by Central Equatoria State (74.2 pc).
