Catholic school Chaminade shinning with sole highest scorer at MSCE

Chaminade Secondary School in Karonga – managed by the Catholic Church –  has produced the sole highest scorer during the Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) who has hit seven points, the only student getting such points across the country.

Exams results out, Chaminade produces the sole highest scorer at 7 points

The headmaster of the school Island Mtambo said the student Davie Ng’oma did not sit for the MSCE as an external candidate as has been reported in various social media platforms.

“He sat as an internal candidate, he was our candidate here, we are happy that he is the highest scorer of the points the whole country,” said Mtambo.

He described the 17-year-old Ng’oma as a hard worker who deserved good grades but said the teachers thought him and two other students who score six points each.

“Although we are happy thathe is the highest scorer the whole country, we are disappointed that we have not produced six point scorers during the academic. We thought we could produce three of them,” he said.

He said last year, the government run boys secondary school produced six boys with six points each.

He asked examination managers, Malawi Examination Board to seal examination leakages, saying this spoils the exam system as other innocent people are punished as well.

This year, over 2500 students got nil in Mathematics, over 200 got nil in sciences as well as many got nil in agriculture.

The Catholic Church—through the Catholic Education Commission in Malawi (Cecom) which is an arm of the Episcopal Conference of Malawi (ECM)—oversees provision of education in 1 538 Catholic primary schools, 14 national Catholic secondary schools, 127 Community Day Secondary Schools (CDSS), more than seven technical colleges, two teacher training colleges (TTC) and two universities.

Their 14 national secondary schools have been leaders in sending hundreds to the country’s public universities.

i think our brothers and sisters from the South and Central Malawi are now in strong belief that Tumbukas are unbeatables no matter what.They do not cheat but,they work very hard leaving NYAU AND CHASING RATS.This brilliant performance was even upheld by the colonial rulers themselves.There was no problem of this sort.We have come to acknowledge this divisive wedge when Banda was in power and it prolonged after his demise up to this date but,thanks to Chilima’s desire,courade and pan-africanness that we have hope the evil system finally will come to it’s demise once and forall.When the government trains a… Read more »

This is a proof that Quota system has failed to prove a point on North Academic dominance, what else evidence do you need here?and some will still say/argue here that those with 20 points from Lilongwe BT, Phalombe,Machinga are more deserving to go to university and not the 7 points guy simply because he comes from Mzimba/Rumphi yet both of the same took the same exams under the same environment, to hell with quota system, a system of mediocrity
