Unity State leads other states in PLE results recently released
The National Examinations Council announced the primary leaving certificate last year, with unity state as the best-performing state, then Jonglei and Warrap. Last came Abyei Administrative Area and Upper Nile State. Up to 64,138 pupils were examined,—35,908 boys & 28,236 girls.
Compared to 2019, general performance improved by roughly 13 percent and performance rates grew from 87.7 percent to 89.9 percent. Deputy General Education Minister Martin Toko Moi, who revealed the results in Juba, claimed seven of the top ten pupils are girls.
“First exams did not leak and there were no cases of cheating. Our girls fared better than boys,” remarked Tako. “The first ten students, most girls,” he added.
The best contender is 457-point Naomi Nyel Deng of Saint Andrew Primary School in Jonglei State. Martha Thomas Moses Abdala of JCC Hai Negil, who received 456 points, follows. JCC’s Emmanuel John Wani Augustino is third with 456 points.
