In 2016, Dennis Bett hit rock bottom when he scored 190 marks out of the possible 500 marks in the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE).

On Monday, Bett shocked many and proved to himself that no human is limited after scoring an impressive B minus (B-) in the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE).

He did not give up and decided to make a life of his education life at Kimargis Secondary School.

For the last four years, he worked hard knowing that his KCPE results would not define him.

“I knew what made me fail and what to do in order not to get similar marks. I consulted my teachers regularly to make sure I understood the concepts,” he spoke of his secret to success.

On top of working smart on his books, he was a disciplined student. This gave him self-drive for academics.

When in Form Two, Kimargis Secondary School Stephen Kirui said that Bett topped his class and has never looked back.

Kirui is among a dozen students who posted good grades for university admission despite not attending the top schools in the country.

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha while releasing the results lauded Bett for his hard work and resilience.

“They had scored below 200 and they are now going to university from the county schools,” Magoha stated.
