Fako News Centre (sponsored by Fako UK) presents 2015 Cameroon GCE Results Analysis;

THE BEST 2O ENGLISH-SPEAKING SCHOOLS

 

A team of 16 men and women in Buea was hired by Fako News Centre to scrutinise the results of every school (more than 500) in Cameroon that entered students for the 2015 Cameroon GCE examinations. Some schools, unfortunately, use the headline percentage pass rate (passed in any 4 or more subjects) to disguise poor performances in English language and mathematics. With an analysis like this, there is no hiding place for any school.

Payment for this very tedious exercise of analysing the results, including GCE results booklets and other resources, were made by Fako UK, who are the sponsors of Fako News Centre. We thank all those principals of high schools who spoke to us and encouraged us to do analysis like this for parents and the general public to know which schools are doing well not only in the overall pass rate, but also in individual subjects, especially mathematics and English language, and the quality of grades achieved by the students.

 

PART A; General performances including outstanding students

 

At the Ordinary level, 21 students achieved 32 or 33 GCE points (4 students had 11As each and 17 had 10As and 1B each) of which 5 came from Saker Baptist College, Limbe, 3 from St Benedict’s College Mvolye, Yaounde, 2 from Sacred Heart College, Bamenda, 2 from Sacred Heart Douala, 2 from Bilingual Grammar School, Molyko, Buea and 1 each from seven other schools. The best O-level student in Cameroon was Mandjob Anne Haley (11As) from a school in Yaounde called ‘We Care Secondary School’ (WCSS).

 

At the Advanced level, the number of students who had 5As dropped from 32 in 2014 to 16 this year, 2015. Some High School principals say the reason for the drop is because of the new further mathematics syllabus which resulted in an exam that many students found very difficult hence lower grades. Of the 16 students who achieved 5As, 3 came from Bilingual Grammar School, Molyko, Buea, 2 from Sacred Heart College Bamenda, 2 from GBHS Bafoussam and 1 each from nine other schools. The best A level student in Cameroon was Daniel Nkameni (5As) of GBHS Bafoussam.

 

PART B; English Language and mathematics (the core subjects)

 

Overall, the number of passes in English improved from 13.26% in 2014 to 26.23% this year, still poor. Also in English, the total number of A grades increased from 4 (four) in 2014 to 67 this year. Of the 67 A grades in English, 7 were from Our Lady of Lourdes Bamenda, 5 from Saker Baptist College, Limbe,  4 from Sacred Heart College, Bamenda, the rest coming from other schools across the country.

Overall, maths results improved slightly from 9.4% in 2014 to 12.41% this year, still very poor.

 

THE BEST 25 SCHOOLS

The ranking of schools is based on exam results and nothing else. You can see from the list below that some new schools, especially those in Yaounde and Douala, have overtaken some of the older ‘big names’ in the North West and South West. A few big names, such as Sasse College, St Augustine College Nso, CPC Bali, Baptist High School, Buea, are struggling to catch up with their old and new rivals. Sacred Heart College, Bamenda, came 1st overall again and also beat every school in the country in the average number of A grades per student at the Advanced level and the Ordinary level. Bilingual Grammar School, Molyko, Buea, emerged overall best government school in Cameroon.

In analysing the results, we have looked at seven measures, as we did last year, for each school and put them under two headings of Quantity and Quality; five for O-levels and two for A-levels. They are;

1)      O-levels;(i)Quantity: a) overall percentage pass rate, b) percentage of students who passed overall including both maths and English

(ii)Quality;a) the average number of A grades achieved, and then expressed as a percentage of the highest grade ‘A’ average in Cameroon, which was achieved by Sacred Heart College Bamenda(3.774 A grades per student), b) the percentage of students who achieved an A grade in maths, c) the percentage of students who achieved an A grade in English.

All the percentages from above are then added together to give a total score for O-levels and the O-level ranking.

2)      A-levels. At the A-Levels, students specialise in what they are good at, so we use two measures only; overall percentage pass rate for Quantity and the percentage grade A average for Quality. Sacred Heart College Bamenda had the highest grade A average at the A-levels (0.9053). The two percentages above are then added together to give the total A-levels score and the A-level ranking.

AND THEN, the Overall ranking=points for O levels plus points for A levels.
