KCSE results 2022 release
According to a report from the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC), 884,263 learners sat for the exam in 2022. Out of this, 405,962 were male while 420,845 were female. Compared to the previous year when candidates were 826,807, the Ministry stated that candidates increased by 57, 456, equivalent to 1.5 % in 2022.
The exam marking process began on January 2nd, 2023 and was anticipated to end on January 16th. However, the process was delayed by Christian Religious Education (CRE) Paper one examiners after they went on strike citing unfavorable working conditions and poor pay. Luckily, this was resolved by the Ministry’s top officials and marking continued as normal.
After marking ended, the Ministry revealed that they are compiling the whole report and release the results before the reopening of schools on January 23, 2023.
2022 KCSE results
CS Ezekiel Machogu is expected to announce the 2022 KCSE results today on Friday January 20, 2023 at the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) offices after reports indicated that marking of the papers had ended.
It is however anticipated that Machogu will not rank schools or students as was the case with the release of Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) results in December.
This will kill the traditional burst of songs and dances from the top performing schools and candidates who could celebrate after being out on national television.
