Grading Systems and Suggested U.S. Equivalents.
Primary and Secondary Schools in Kenya.

The Kenya Certificate Primary Education and the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education use the same grading system.


Each subject is graded on the basis of a 12-point scale. 12 points is the highest and 1 point the lowest score.

These points are accompanied by an expanded grading system of A, A-, B+ ... E.

This system takes into account the level of performance as a major criterion for determining the quality of candidates to be considered for further education.

Institutions offering further education and training for secondary school leavers are required to use these grades and points to select suitable candidates for their training.

Q. What are the percentage requirements for a certain grade e.g. A in English and Kiswahili in KCSE?
