PEMS ranked #1 in the District!!

National Examinations Council of Tanzania (NECTA) released the 2022 Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) results in late November.  The PSLE is a national examination held annually for pupils that have completed grade 7, the end of their primary school education.

We are proud to report that Precious English Medium School (PEMS) is ranked #1 in the District out of 171 schools.  It is reported that 37 of the 39 students that sat for the exam scored all 'A's' in each subject area.   "We are very proud of our students and teachers, who have worked incredibly hard and managed to stay on top for two consecutive years," said co-founder Gil Williams.  

This is an incredible accomplishment considering the Precious English Medium Primary School opened its doors only six years ago, in January 2016.   At the time, the primary school was just a two-story building with nine classrooms that educated 180 students from pre-K to 7th grade.   With the help of our generous donors, we have grown exponentially and are now able to provide primary school education to nearly 440 students.  

William Modest, co-founder emphasized, 'our teachers have done a very good job to make sure these students pass their National Exams with flying colors. Asante Sana (thank you very much in Swahili) to our donors for standing beside us and being ready to support these children tirelessly. We could not have reached this far without your dedication and readiness."

Everyone (students, teachers, and staff members) were very excited to hear this outstanding news.  In a moment to honor this great accomplishment, the students were treated to a day of celebration as they loaded up on the busses and traveled around the Usariver area cheering and singing loudly, followed by an afternoon of dance.  
What is the objective of the PSLE?  The objectives of PSLE are to assess learner’s skills and knowledge gained in the different subjects at the primary school level, to assess learners' understanding of the basic skills and abilities in reading, writing, and arithmetic, and the extent that they can use such skills in solving pertinent problems in life; and identify learners with the capacity to continue with secondary education and other training institutions.

Who is eligible to take the PSLE exam?  Any pupil who has completed grade seven in any school (government and private) is eligible to sit for the NECTA PSLE  examination.

How does Precious earn the ranking of #1 in the district out of 171 schools?  PSLE schools are ranked based on the average total marks of the school, which is computed by summing the total scores of each candidate in all five examination subjects divided by the total number of students who sat for the examination in that school. This average score ranges between 0 to 250; the higher the average, the higher the performance.
