“I am however deeply concerned at the high number of students that are failing to make the transition to university.

“The overall number of candidates with minimum university entry qualification, Grade C+ and above stands at only 11.38. Close to 90 percent of the KCSE candidates have failed,” he said.

The NASA leader highlighted that it was important that the issue being raised by various parties to be probed.

“As a society, we must listen to the cries of the candidates, the parents and teachers’ unions on this matter and have a serious conversation about this worrying trend of very low transition to university that has been witnessed in recent years,” the statement reads in part.
