Abstract

This dissertation assessed the contribution of Form Two National examination to academic performance in Form Four National examination in Community Secondary Schools in Mara Region. Seven community secondary schools were involved, namely; Kukirango, Makongoro, Mogabiri, Morembe, Mugango, Serengeti, and Suba secondary schools. The study involved mixed research approaches which entails Quantitative and Qualitative. Data were collected using documentary review. The findings confirmed that, Form Two National examination contributes to academic performance in Form Four National examination. The cohort of students who sat for the Form Two screening National examination performed better than those who didn’t sit for such examination. The study recommends the government to uphold the conduct of Form Two National examination so as to screen students who can join with upper classes. Termination of the Form Two National examination done by the government in 2008 was not the right decision since it has dropped down academic performance in Form Four National examination, and therefore the decision made by the government in 2012 to reintroduce Form Two National examination is the right decision as it will improve academic performance in schools.
