KCSE: Alarm as the Numbers of Es Increase

The number of candidates who scored E went up from 33,399 candidates in 2016 to 35,536 this year.

The poor performance in this year’s KCSE has yet again been emphasized as the number of candidates who scored grades C-, D+, D, D- and E increased significantly.

Those who scored C- increased by 14 from 61,026 in 2016 to 61,040, while those with D+ also increased from 80,951 in 2016 to 88,447 this year.

This year, only 70,073 out of the 611,952 candidates — just 11.5 per cent — managed the minimum university entry qualification of mean grade C+.

In 2016, some 88,929 qualified.

The number of those who scored grade A increased by 1 from 141 in 2016 to 142 this year.

Candidates who scored A- reduced from 4,645 in 2016 to 2,714 this year further sending a red alert in the performance.
