KCPE Results Controversy: Discrepancies and Grading Errors Unveiled

Just a day after releasing the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) results, discrepancies in the results are now surfacing. The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) mistakenly assigned incorrect marks to some candidates and granted grades for subjects they did not actually sit for.

The examination authorities identified instances where they assigned different grades to identical scores, as well as situations where candidates received higher grades for lower scores.

Concerned candidates, parents, and schools have expressed their grievances to the Kenya National Examination Council, urging prompt rectification.

One affected student is Eddy Ikonge Bosire, who took the KCPE at Kari Primary School in Kisii. His results contain an error, wrongly awarding him a plain A in English, whereas the portal reflects that he achieved an A minus.

Furthermore, the marks for the Kenya Sign Language subject were inaccurately assigned instead of the Kiswahili language in which he was examined.

Bosire’s case mirrors that of numerous candidates who have appealed to the Kenya National Examination Council to review their KCPE results, citing similar discrepancies. One widespread issue is the awarding of grades for subjects they did not sit for.

Moreover, some candidates with identical marks received different grades. For instance, a score of 74 marks in Social Studies and Religion resulted in a B plain grade for one candidate, while another candidate with 73 marks in the same subject received a B plus grade.

In response to inquiries, KNEC acknowledged receiving complaints from candidates and various schools. Dr. David Njengere, the CEO of KNEC, stated that candidates have a 30-day window to address any issues with the examination body through the sub-county director of education.

Njengere explained that the SMS service provider was to blame for the problem, not KNEC. He addressed the matter with the service provider early on Friday and resolved it since.
