Sudanese families are showing mounting interest in the result of the Secondary School Certificate, which the public considers the sole criteria for excellence and a guarantor for good university education.
"Early in the academic year, I put a paper on my study desk in which I wrote: I must come top of the secondary school certificate and would be contented with no less than 98 percent score,'' said Abdallah after the result was announced." I used to look at that paper whenever I sat to study. It was a big motivation for me and had encouraged me to keep studying," he said.
Ms. Einas Mohammad al-Ameer and Ms. Nada Mohammad al-Sir came second to Abdallah, scoring 97 percent.
69 female students were among the top 100 students, a continuation of girls good performance during the last three decades.
