Despite the challenges that the coronavirus pandemic brings we still have good news to share. Just prior to lockdown in Uganda the exam results were released and the news was very encouraging with the Revival Schools achieving some of the best results in the area. Madam Allen says: “I wish to share that all our primary seven candidates that sat for their primary leaving exams last year have had their results released and they are good results. We had 8 first grades and 27 second grades. We registered no failures.”
In addition, one of the Senior 4 champions Jessy Kimumulo particularly excelled in her exam performance (equivalent of our GCSE). Madam Allen says: “Our Jessy was the best in our area which has brought Revival Grammar to appear in the newspapers as well as our other media (radios).” Another champion Patience came in second place within the area and the others followed with 10 first grades, 10 second grades, 30 third grades and 17 fourth grades.
The Senior 6 pupils also did extremely well in there A level exams. Nine out of fourteen students achieved high enough grades to meet the requirements to potentially go forward for further education. Madam Allen tells us that the possibility of gaining support through the GACAH Further Education Scholarship has really motivated the senior pupils in their studies.
