133 KCPE candidates awarded incorrect grades

In the 2023 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education exam, 133 individuals received incorrect scores, according to the Kenya National Examination Council. CEO of Knec David Njengere announced on Saturday that the organization has been getting appeals from a few impacted schools expressing displeasure with their results as they were sent via the 40054 SMS code.

“Knec has reviewed all the appeals and found that there were 133 candidates affected.”Njengere promised that all 133 cases had been handled and that the results for the candidates who were impacted had been corrected correctly.The Knec head also disclosed that grades and marks in Kiswahili were entered into the Kenyan Sign Language area, and that results for certain candidates were not synchronized.

He added that there have been instances where grades in Social Studies, Science,  and Religious Education have been improperly trimmed, without the appropriate  plus (+) and negative (-) symbols. “The error affected only the SMS results due to configuration issues as the results  in the KNEC portal are accurate,” Njengere stated. He claimed that after Knec informed the SMS service provider, the text message  problem was fixed right away.Njengere suggested that students pick up their  provisional results in person from their schools because not all results provided  via SMS are accurate.

“Candidates have been advised to visit their schools and collect the official  provisional results slips and raise any query for review of their results, if any,  within the stipulated 30 days period,” Njengere stated. On Wednesday, November 23, the Ministry of Education declared the 1,406,557  KCPE examination results for 2023.
