Cambridge International Examinations has opened an office in Nairobi in a move expected to make it easy for students within  Kenya and East Africa to sit for its internationally recognized examinations.


Kenya is currently second after Nigeria in providing students seeking to go through the Cambridge system of education in Sub-Saharan Africa. Data by the British Council show that over 2,300 students from Kenya sit for Cambridge examinations which are accepted by institutions of higher learning in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia.

“Kenyan students (sitting for Cambridge assessments) are also highly sought after by UK universities because of their high performance,”

British Council Director Tony Reilly commented at an event held at Brook house school yesterday for official announcing of Cambridge’s future plans in East Africa.

This is great news for students who are seeking scholarships at Universities in UK and Europe
