Jeriel Ndeda Obura, the top student in the 2021 KCSE examinations wants to join Maseno University.

Jeriel scored 87.167 to top the over 800, 000 students who sat the examinations.

Speaking to a local television on phone shortly after Education CS Prof George Magoha released the results, he expressed joy at his performance.

I did not always top the class. From time to time someone would defeat you. But I was always in top ten


“I did not think I would be top of the class,” he said.

He said he did a lot of practice to expose him to some of the questions expected at the examination.

The boy from Vihiga County said he faced stiff competition, as he used to battle the top spot with colleague classmates.

“I did not always top the class. From time to time someone would defeat you. But I was always in top ten,” he said.

Jeriel disclosed that he had selected to pursue a course in Medicine at Maseno University.

“I chose Maseno University as my first choice, so I would wish to join Maseno,” he said.

He said he was inspired to choose Medicine due to his long time love for subjects on living things.

He developed this passion while in Form One, when he interacted with Biology subject.
