The Ministry of Education revealed the results for the 2022/2023 Advanced Level national examinations on Monday, December 4. Seventeen top performers from various education streams were honoured for achieving a perfect score of 60/60, each receiving a brand-new Lenovo personal computer.
In a press briefing, Gaspard Twagirayezu, Minister of Education, said: “While these recipients represent excellence, it is important to note that they are not the sole achievers. The introduction of the competence-based curriculum has given rise to new skill sets across various trades. This year, our decision to recognise and reward these 17 top performers is rooted in our commitment to inclusivity.”
“We acknowledge the diverse talents emerging from these new trades. In essence, the ministry sought to extend recognition to at least one outstanding student in each category. This initiative aims to convey our support, encouraging all students to pursue their respective fields with dedication and passion,” Twagirayezu said.
