In his announcement, Dr. David M.

School Limited scored 337, Nasrallah Tyra of Leone Preparatory Primary School scored 334, and Sesay Angela J.M. of the International School Limited also scored 334, adding that more girls attempted and passed the NPSE in a rate of 81.2 percent as the highest ever in Sierra Leone.Dr. Sengeh averred that the 2022 NPSE was the first national school examination conducted during the post-COVID-19 recovery period, noting that there were public concerns over the integrity of national school examinations because of the original three terms measures adopted since the 2020/2021 school year.

He said the initial analysis suggests that the impact of exams’ regularity and results was negligible and that the performance of 2022 suggests that candidates were better prepared by their schools.Dr. Sengeh expressed gratitude to primary school teachers for their exemplary services that led to the good results by their pupils.

DR. Sengeh also thanked the West African Examination Council (WAEC) for their unrelenting support to his Ministry.
