This study sought to analyze the impact of internal efficiency on K.C.S.E. performance in Nyamache division by looking at some of the efficiency indicators in secondary schools. The main objective was to establish enrolment trends, determine the measures of efficiency (dropout, survival, graduation and repeater rates), and establish the causes and attempt to provide possible solutions to the problems mentioned above. The sample population comprised of selected secondary schools in the district. Out of 106 secondary schools in the district, 20 were randomly selected and used to collect data on enrolments, repetition by gender between 1997 to second term 2006 by use of a prepared proforma. This represented approximately 19% of the schools. The data collected was used to calculate dropout, survival, graduation and repeater rates.
