A 71-year-old woman is among this year’s KCPE top candidates in results that were released on Monday.
Loise Tukongole from Baringo County scored 320 marks out of the possible 500 marks beating most candidates despite her age and having to take care of 15 children.
Mama Loise sat her exams at Chepturu Primary School.
She said her aspiration is to join Alliance Girls and later become a doctor.
A total of 1,520,364 pupils sat for this year’s national primary examinations.
Two students who scored 453 marks emerged top: they are Rawlings Odhiambo of Kakamega Hill and Olive Mwea a student from Riara Primary School.
