On Friday, January 11, the council offered relief to slightly over a third of the candidates by releasing results of 57 candidates.
The council however, ruled that 159 girls who registered and sat for the 2018 exams at the institution engaged in malpractices thereby cancelling their results.
Jemimah Sambai, the school's principal told 40days that the council, after investigations deduced that the 159 candidates colluded in the Biology paper which was a gross malpractice.
"Out of the 57 who received their results, 37 got above C plus grade. They secured university minimum entry points," said Sambai.
She said the school administration kwould convene meeting with parents and guardians of the 159 affected students to chat the way forward out of the crisis.
Sing'ore Girls, another school in the county which emerged top nationally in the 2018 examinations with a mean core of 9.690 had also protested the 2018 results by KNEC in which they drastically dropped to 4.8 points.
