N.E.C. unveils 2021 P.L.E. examinations, with English as the lowest performing subject.
The National Examination Council revealed the results of the 2021 Primary Leaving Exams on Friday, with one female applicant from Juba ranking among the top ten achievers from Jonglei State.
According to the council, 49,541 students took the February 2022 exams out of 54,361 who enrolled for national exams.
There were 29,173 male applicants and 20,389 female candidates that took the exams, with 26,508 boys and 17,707 girls passing the exams, respectively. This indicates that 4,820 students did not take the exams for unknown reasons.
According to the NEC, English was the lowest performing subject in the exams, followed by mathematics, while Christian Education and Social Studies were the top performing courses.
This year, the top 10 spots were distributed among fifteen applicants who graduated from private schools in Jonglei State.
Alfa Junior Nursery and Primary School and St Andrew, both in Jonglei State, topped the list of top performers.
Anyango Jenifer of the Royal Star Academy in Central Equatoria, the only female contender, reached the top ten list.
John Deng Ruei of Alfa Junior Nursary and Primary School in Jonglei State finished first among the top five male candidates, tied with Nicodemus Abuk of St Andrew in the same state.
Tong Mabior Lueth of Alfa Junior Nursery and Primary School, Malier Alier Malier of the same school, and Gai Bol Biel of St Andrew follow with 477, 476, and 475 points, respectively.
Marlin Apieu from St Andrew Primary Institution, Abul Gai from the same school, Anai Machar from Alfa Junior Primary School, and Dorcas Angur from St Andrew Primary School are the females behind Anyango Jenifer of the Royal Star Academy in Central Equatoria as the greatest female performances.
They received closed marks of 472, 471, 470, and 469.
“The explanation is simple: private schools pay more and have better facilities than public schools,” stated Martin Tako, Deputy Minister of General Education and Instruction, who delivered the data.
“We at the ministry are working hard to encourage teachers to return to the teaching profession since most of them departed due to terrible working conditions.”
According to state performance, Jonglei is first, followed by Pibor Administrative, with Warrap, Lakes, Northern Bahr el Ghazal, Central Equatoria, and Eastern Equatoria coming in third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh.
Unity State came in last behind Western Equatoria State and Eastern Equatoria State; however, they are not as ill off as the administrative districts of Abyei and Rwweng.
This year’s total performance is assessed at 89-point 3 percent by NEC.
