KNEC to Release 2023 KCPE Results by November 30

By the end of this month, the Ministry of Education will release the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination results, setting the stage for secondary school placements before Christmas.

The Ministry of Education aims to offer parents ample time to plan for school fees amidst rising living costs during these challenging economic times.

The announcement occurred as the ministry defended the ongoing KCSE exams in the face of malpractice claims in several secondary schools nationwide.

According to Dr Belio Kipsang, Principal Secretary for Basic Education, the marking of the KCPE exam has begun, with results coming in a few weeks.

After visiting Naivasha Girls Secondary School, the PS praised the head teachers for their efforts during the national exams.
He mentioned that they observed an exposure of exam materials during a single collection, leading to the decision to collect them twice daily.

Meanwhile, Kipsang refuted recent KCSE exam malpractice cases, indicating that the suspension of only seven center managers had occurred.
He attributed this year’s low number of exam cheaters to the move to collect exam papers twice a day and the backing of the Ministries of Interior and ICT.

“We noticed that there was exposure of the exam materials when collected once and hence the directive to collect them twice a day,” he said.

The PS announced that the seven suspended center managers would undergo disciplinary action once the tests concluded later this year. He highlighted that the suspension of only seven out of over 11,000 center managers for malpractice underscores the high credibility of their exams.

Concerning flooding, the PS stated that the government had sent choppers in impacted areas, primarily in Northern Kenya, to aid in distributing exam materials.

Dr. David Njeng’ere, the chief executive officer of the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC), declared that there have been no documented cases of early exposure since the tests commenced. He added that they had faced challenges with early exposure to exam materials since 2016, but implementing the new directive of collecting exams twice a day has resolved this issue.

The Naivasha sub-county commissioner, Kisilu Mutua, claimed that in contrast to other areas, the area had not suffered damage from heavy rains, which allowed for on-time completion of school exams.

“We have added another examination container in Mai Mahiu town, and we are working on the Maella area, which is quite far from Naivasha,” he said.
