KNEC Addresses 133 Cases On 2023 KCPE Results

The Kenya National Examination Council has addressed 133 concerns involving the KCPE results for 2023. Only 133 of the 1,406,507 students had problems that were corrected.

One story that has recently gone viral on social media is from a school in Isiolo County, where all pupils allegedly received 75 marks in science.

Last week, Dr. David Njeng’ere, the CEO of KNEC, conducted an assessment of the school’s results and found no evidence of misconduct or inconsistency.

He stated that after reviewing the results and reports from examination centers, as well as anonymous letters, there was no indication that the school was involved in examination malpractices.

“Science is a multiple-choice question paper, thus making it possible for the candidates to get identical marks.”

The 2023 KCPE test results are among those with the fewest complaints about registration, administration, and distribution of results.

In the 2016 KCPE results, for example, a school like Olympic Primary had a case where the majority of kids achieved 51% in maths.

A dead student in Kakamega County was handed a grade on the 2018 KCSE exam, shocking the country.

KNEC stated that, as in past occasions, they investigated the issues and efficiently addressed them.

While such incidents may occur, they do not necessarily undermine the integrity of the overall result, according to Knec.

Schools have thirty days to argue against the results, according to Njeng’ere.

Dr. Njengere stated that, according to the KNEC Rules of 2015, specifically Legal Notice 131 on the marking of examinations, release of results, and certification, Rule 27 outlines the provision for candidates or schools to submit written appeals for the review of examination results to the Council within thirty days from the date of result release.

Furthermore, Knec addressed complaints swiftly from schools impacted by SMS results. The CEO of KNEC reported alignment issues with marks and grades in Kiswahili, where some were inaccurately placed under Kenyan Sign Language.

Science, Social Studies, and Religious Education grades also experienced incorrect truncation without the expected plus (+) and minus (-) signs. This misalignment, however, was confined to SMS results due to configuration issues, and the problem was promptly resolved after KNEC informed the SMS service provider.
