Overall out of the 16 students 10% of the total scored 6 distinctions in their results. He was echoed by the college Dean of Curriculum Mr Bornventure Owuor who attributed the 2020 PTE students for pausing the outstanding results.
The Dean of studies said that the ECDE Diploma, certificate, and PTE had a 96% pass.
