In the test whose results were announced today- Tuesday in Zanzibar by the acting executive secretary of the National Examinations Council of Tanzania (Necta), seven girls from one school were in the top 10 nationally. However, only three boys, from Tabora Boys’, managed to join the group.

Third place nationally was taken by Muhewa Kamando from Tabora Boys’. Minael Mgonja, from St. Mary’s Mazinde Juu was positioned fourth, followed by a colleague from the same school, Norah Kidjout in fifth place.
