The national Ministry of General Education and Instructions over the weekend released the senior four results for the year 2021-2022 examination where Jonglei State took the lead with seven students among the top ten followed by Central Equatoria State.

Recently, students across the Country sat for the Secondary Certificate of Education after several procrastinations by the national examination council upon series of strikes that impeded most of the coverage in public schools.

Despite the constraints that resulted into the late conduct of the examination, some improvements were witnessed as the marking and the declaration of the results never delayed compared to previous years.

The report indicated that at least a total number of thirty-two thousand, four hundred and thirty-seven (32,437) students across the Country sat for the national examinations in three hundred and forty schools (340) where twenty-one thousand one hundred and twenty-eight (21,128) were masculine and eleven thousand three hundred and nine (11,309) were female.

Generally, boys overtook ladies in terms of the overall performance in the recent declaration of the Secondary Certificate of Education results.

“Jonglei state and Central Equatoria became the best performing with the percentage of 76.48 in favor of Jonglei and 74.93 for Central Equatoria state. Among the top five best performing states were Eastern Equatoria, Lakes and Unity states,” the statement states.

In addition, the results demonstrated Yuang Jacob Gaar as the Country’s leading student with the percentage of 94.1% from Jonglei state and Charles Atek Peter taking the second lead with 93.9% from Western Bahr-el-Ghazal state.

Furthermore, the examination analysis report revealed out science subjects being worst performed as additional mathematics gained better performance based on its final hypothesis.

Speaking during the event, Awut Deng Acuil, the National Minister of General Education and Instructions appreciated the efforts made by teachers towards preparing their candidates for the final examinations.

She said that despite the good results, many efforts were needed to improve some poorly performed subjects especially the science subjects that required much practice and commitment.

However, she demonstrated her ministry’s commitment towards improving the education sector to the best of its level.

“To address these challenges, the ministry will have to embark on offering training of science subjects to improve the performance in the science department. I appreciate the efforts invested by teachers in our various schools across the Country regarding the tough journey they spent in preparing the students for the certificate of the secondary education,” she said.
