Christian Brothers’ College held its annual Academic Excellence Awards today, shining the spotlight on academic achievers in a year which saw pass rates, at almost every examination level, either consistent with last year or slightly higher.

“In all, the examination results are a powerful vindication of the ethos, practice and permanence of our Edmundian Commitment and an encouraging call to the improvement and rededication that a New Year brings.”

– Mr K. Muhomba, Acting Headmaster

At IGCSE O Level the pass rate was up by 4% to 75 percent, with 4.1 recording 100% pass rates; at AS Level pass rates remained the same as last year at 95%; and at A Level, they were once again consistent with last year at 97%.

Worth noting were 100% pass rates in a number of subjects at AS and A Level, including, at AS Level, Art and Design, Business Studies, D & T, Literature in English and PE and, at A Level, Accounting, Art and Design, Biology, Chemistry, Computing, D & T, Economics and Literature. There was no subject at A Level which recorded a pass rate below 85%.

Said Acting Headmaster, Mr K. Muhomba, before handing out academic colours to outstanding candidates at O, AS and A Level: “Excellence is the hallmark of our standards here at CBC and, as such, we gather this morning to give recognition to the boys who have attained this standard. Having said that, however, let me hasten to say well done to the boys who did their best in last year’s public exams but who may not be receiving an award this morning.”
