“Our exams have proven to be an excellent platform for learners to get into, and get on, at institutions of higher learning.  Congratulations to the schools, the dedicated teachers, and not least the students.  These results have been duplicated in the many countries across the Sub-Saharan region in which our schools operate, proving there is a strong demand for robust programmes of study supported by valid and reliable exams trusted by universities across the region.”
