KCPE results to be released as teachers urged to report discrepancies

A total of 937,467 candidates who sat their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations last month will on Wednesday know their results, which secondary schools candidates will join next year.


The Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) will release the results at a press conference presided over by Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i at Mitihani House, Nairobi.

There were 48,304 more candidates compared to last year’s 889,163.

Knec Chief Executive Officer Joseph Kivilu said Monday the results would be announced in the format introduced last year.

“Just like last year, we will not be ranking candidates or schools but we will provide more information on the results,” he said, and warned that results of candidates found to have cheated would be withheld.

“Candidates with withheld or pending results will receive a letter through their headteachers explaining why,” he said, adding that anyone could access the results through a mobile phone by sending a candidate’s index number to 22252.

Dr Kivilu asked teachers to report any discrepancies in the results and submit appeals for remarking within a month from Wednesday.

Nairobi County had the highest number of candidates at 50,821 while Lamu had the lowest at 2,579.

The candidates sat the examination after a five-week strike by teachers demanding a pay increase, prompting calls for a postponement, which the Government rejected.

Candidates will be subjected to a new form one admission criteria adopted this year in which the top five top from each sub-county — whether in public or private schools — will get automatic admission to national schools up from three while extra county schools will take 70 per cent of students from public schools and 30 per cent from private.

On Monday, Kuppet Chairman Omboko Milemba warned the TSC against punishing teachers for any examination leakages.
