The 16-year-old got aggregate 19 and emerged the second-best student in her school.
She said: â€œI lost my book of summaries and I cried a lot. This stressed me and I developed a serious headache which only subsided when I was put on drip.â€
Mwebesa sat the Geography, History and English exams while on drip and she expected to get a second grade.
â€œI was worried about Mathematics because I had a pass eight in the mocks but I was surprised to get a distinction one in the finals,â€ she said.
