KNEC Requested to Release the KCSE Date to Reduce Anxiety

The prolonged delay in the announcement of the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) results has presented Kenyans with an unexpected dilemma. People are becoming increasingly concerned about possible effects on the holiday joy that usually permeates this time of year as the holidays draw near.

The rigorous grading procedure began on November 24 when the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) declared the end of the national examinations. It concluded on December 11. Kenyans had been waiting anxiously for an official word from KNEC announcing the results, but their expectations were unsettled by the organization’s disturbing quiet.

This delay has triggered a range of opinions on social media, creating a divide among the populace. Some argue that the prolonged wait poses a threat to the joyful atmosphere associated with the holidays, while others contend that it offers an opportunity for careful error correction, drawing parallels to challenges encountered during the release of Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) results.

Furthermore, KNEC’s recent decision to welcome international observers from Ghana, South Africa, Tanzania, South Sudan, Zambia, and Eswatini to witness the processing of the 2023 KCSE examination results has fueled speculation. This move has prompted questions about the transparency and standards of Kenya’s examination system, contributing to the growing uncertainty surrounding the delayed release.

It has been observed that this differs from the custom of announcing results a few days before Christmas in the years before the COVID-19 epidemic. This well-known routine has changed due to the virus’s disruptions to the school calendar. Schools filed lawsuits after the 2023 KCPE results were released three weeks later than expected due to technical issues that required adjustments.

Kenyans must traverse the holiday season with a palpable sense of tension surrounding the highly anticipated KCSE results amid this uncertainty. In addition to dampening the joyous atmosphere, the postponed publication poses serious doubts regarding the effectiveness and openness of Kenya’s educational system.
