KNEC clarified release date of KCSE

The Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) results could be released before Christmas, according to recent claims that have been publicly denied by the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC).

KNEC dismissed an internet article that suggested a possible release window of December 16–22, emphasizing that the KCSE exam marking procedure is still in progress and that the results will be released whenever they are fully completed.

KNEC explained in a statement that was made public, “KNEC has issued no such remark. The KCSE is now being marked, and the results will be made public as soon as they are available. Additionally, the publication that was reported said erroneously that exam marking will end on December 11—a statement that KNEC has categorically refuted.

The false notice further propagated that the release of the results would be orchestrated by Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu, assisted by officials from the Ministry of Education, Kenya National Examinations Council, Teachers Service Commission, and Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development.

Notably, the KCSE exams took place from Friday, November 24, with physics practicals, until Friday, October 10. Nine hundred and thirty-three individuals took the exams in total.

The Ministry of Education and the Examinations Council are the subject of constant controversy, especially in the wake of the 2023 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE). This clarification has been released by KNEC. During a meeting with the Education Parliamentary Committee, Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu recognized mistakes in the KCPE exams that were made public on November 23.

Machogu claimed that the problems were outside of their control but guaranteed that they had been fixed, attributing the mistakes to the organization in charge of the QR code that is used to distribute results. He also denied rumors that said KNEC had given a local business a contract to publish the national exams for 2023. Stakeholders are keeping a careful eye on developments in the examination process, so the situation is still fluid.
