“My only problem is that normally academics like myself do not do these kinds.

if analyses in a vacuum.

We need not just look at the average figures that have been presented, you need.

to delve deeper into the data and find out how individual schools are doing and.

find out how individual students are also performing, that is the only point that you.

will note that the results are really what we think they are.

“We also have to look at the individual's performance in relation to.

their various elective subjects.

You will agree with me that you need a pass in three core subjects to.

be able to pursue tertiary education but at the same time, you need a pass.

in three elective subjects.

“So if you don't get the pass in your electives and you are.

passing your core subjects it still means you will not be able to access tertiary.

education as you so wished to, so these are the issues we need to understand.

The figures look good but let us to look at the performance of individual.

schools and then the performance of students within these schools.
