KCPE Results 2018
Why KCPE Results 2018 will be out early
Results of this year’s national examinations will be out much earlier, compared even to last year when for the first time they were announced before Christmas, it has emerged.
Sources at the Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) revealed that the agency had done several test runs on the modern technology to fast-track the marking process.
Knec chairman George Magoha hinted at the new development during stakeholders’ meeting at Pangani Girls School yesterday. “We must again prepare to receive results early because of what we have done to Insha and Composition,” Magoha said without elaborating.
He spoke during the official launch of national examinations regional briefings at Pangani Girls, Nairobi. Prof Magoha said Knec has invested in technology that will enhance marking, tallying and swift relay of results.
This means that KCPE may be released within one week after completion.
Last year, KCPE results were released November 21 with KCSE released December 20. Previous years, KCPE results were released just after Christmas and KCSE moved to the following year.
It emerged that the new marking machines – Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) – used for the first time last year, have been fine-tuned to speed marking of Insha and Composition papers.
“If we want to, we may even release the results after three days,” Magoha said. Record time Under the new plan, marked scripts will be scanned though the machines to verify marks in record time, compared to previous years when tallying was done manually.
Optical Mark Recognition is the process of capturing marked data from candidates’ answer sheets using specialised scanning. Scripts will be marked in batches of 100 and 200 sheets, unlike the previous technology which took many hours.
Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohammed said reforms introduced into the examinations sector in the past two years had played a pivotal role in improving the whole examinations process. “National examinations are now more credible than they have ever been, and stand as a reliable measure of the level of achievement of individual candidates,” said Amina.
The CS said that issues noted in the administration of last year’s examinations have been rectified.

KCPE Results 2017 Released
The 2017 Standard Eight national exam results are out. Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi released the results on Tuesday morning at Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development in the capital Nairobi.
Dr Matiangi said no single irregularity was reported in the tests that mark transition from primary to secondary school.
Of the 1,003,556 candidates who wrote the exams, 9,846 scored 400 marks and above out of the possible 500. Those who scored below 100 marks dropped from 6,747 in 2016 to 2,360 in 2017.
The top candidate scored 455 out of 500 marks, an 18 mark improvement from last year’s 437. “The best candidate in last year’s exam would not be even top 20 in this year’s results thus showing remarkable improvement,” he said.
Matiang’i was keen to note that the marking in this year’s KCPE results had a 99.98% accuracy rating with every student who sat this year’s exam expected to get their results as there were no cancellations, missing marks or any case of malpractice recorded.
This year, the Kenya National Examinations Council used the automated Optical Mark Recognition machines that fast-tracked the process of marking with results being released just 19 days after the national exam ended.
The CS said all the over 9,000 candidates who managed 400 marks and above would join national secondary schools whether they sat the tests at a private or public exam centre.
“Form One selection will start on December 4, 2017,” Dr Matiangi said.
In a rare proud moment, the Education CS announced that six students in the top 100 list came from special needs schools further adding that the government has committed to improving their infrastructure in a bid to empower students with special needs.
He attributed this year’s success in exam and delivery results to a multi-agency collaboration in the sector saying it has indeed yielded results.
The release came almost a month earlier than previous years after marking was fast-tracked by optical machines. The 20 new scanning machines, bought by the Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) at a cost of Sh90 million, replaced 20 old scanners bought more than 17 years ago.

KCPE Results 2017 Summary
- This year’s KCPE top candidate got 455 marks compared to last year’s 437, a remarkable improvement as Education Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i rightly put it, ,during the official release of the results at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) on Tuesday.
- An estimate 9,846 candidates scored 400 marks and above compared to last year’s 5,190.

- Matiang’i also emphasized that all those who managed 400 marks and above will be admitted to national schools across the country irrespective of whether they attended a public or a private school. This as he justly said there was a need to nurture and serve school going children in order to secure their future.

- KNEC procured an additional 67,000 containers as compared 300 metallic containers in 2016 that were highly secured in various County Commissioners’ offices. Equally, security was top notch.

KCPE Results 2017: Meet Goldalyn Kakuya, best 2017 KCPE candidate
The search for the best pupil in the just released KCSE results is over. The crown goes to Goldalyn Kakuya from St Anne’s Junior Lubao in Kakamega County.
Kakuya, 14, defied all odds and beat 993,717 other pupils to emerge victorious with 455 marks scoring an A in all subjects.
She scored an impressive 99 in English and Kiswahili, followed by Science 88, Mathematics 85 and Social Studies and Religion 84 respectively.
In her victory speech, Kakuya, a special student, said she expected to pass the examination “but not to this extent”. She is torn between joining Kenya High School and M-Pesa Foundation Academy.
She wishes to study psychotherapy and be a psychiatrist as she loves “talking to people and anything related to the mind”.
“I dedicate this performance to all the people who have supported me through my education, teachers, friends, parents and the school,” she says.
It was however not a surprise for the school as the teachers say she always took the lead despite her poor health. She is also hailed as being a role model to her fellow students.
Her father is a manager at West Kenya Sugar while the mother is a lecturer at Kibabi University.
KCPE Results 2017 – Uhuru Kenyatta orders special KCPE, KCSE exams for candidates
President Uhuru Kenyatta has directed the Education ministry to set special supplementary exams to cater for students who failed to take the tests due to unavoidable circumstances.
He made the directive when he met Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i and senior ministry officials at Harambee House before Dr Matiang’i released the exams on Tuesday.
“The president has directed the CS and his ministry to set special supplementary examinations for a special cadre of students who because of compassionate reasons may usually have difficulty doing exams during the normal exams calendar,” State House spokesman Manoah Esipisu said in a statement.
Out of the 1,003,556 candidates who registered to sit the tests, 993,718 sat the three-day examinations under tight security.
While the exact number of students who failed to either start or finish the exams due to special needs cannot be put down to a number, the strict nature of the national exams calendar has in the past locked out students who fell sick.
These students, over the years, have had to re-register for the tests and sit them the next time they are offered, albeit a year later.
“These special examinations may be undertaken by students who may be ill, lose their parents, or give birth during the normal examinations calendar,” Mr Esipisu said of the president’s directive.
“This is already the practice around the world. We have been lagging behind that and I think it is time to bridge the gap.”
2017 KCPE Results: The return of public schools
Public primary schools, long outperformed and dominated by private institutions when it comes to national exam results seem to be crawling back to relevance and the government is promising lots of goodies.
Speaking while releasing the 2017 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCPE) exams, Education Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’i noted that the second best candidate came from a public school. He also announced that the number of candidates from schools in the top 100 slots also considerably increased this year.
According to the CS, the government will set up a special fund to allocate to all public schools that have produced students in the top 100 category for purposes of improving the infrastructure and growing their capacity.
“As we went round you can tell clearly that there was much more seriousness and focus in our candidates than last year. I am so grateful to the teachers. Primary school teachers are our heroes,” said Matiang’i.
2017 KCPE Results: No gap between boys and girls
The gap between boys and girls in this year’s KCPE examination was almost at par with 498,775 (50.19%) being boys while 494,943 (48.1%) were girls. The number of absentee candidates also fell significantly.
But 27 counties registered more girls than boys, with the CS exuding confidence that the ministry has, at last, achieved gender parity in education.
“Kakamega, Meru, Bungoma, Nairobi, Embu, Machakos, Vihiga, Kisii, Kitui, Makueni, Siaya, Busia, Nyamira, Tharaka Nithi, Trans-nzoia, Kisumu, Nakuru, Murang’a and Mombasa are some of the counties that registered slightly higher number of girls than boys,” added Matiang’i.
The number of children who scored below 100 marks also reduced. In 2016 6,747 candidates scored below the 100 mark but down years down the lane, only 2,360 achieved the fate.
This year, 9,846 candidates scored 400 and above marks as opposed to last year’s 5,143 candidates.
KCPE results to be released early as Knec gets machines to mark exam
The KCPE Results 2017 could be announced this month, the Kenya National Examinations Council has said.
George Magoha, the chairman of the council, said Knec had procured 20 machines at a cost of Sh100 million to enhance marking of scripts. According to Prof Magoha, acquisition of the automated Optical Mark Recognition machines, is set to reduce the work force by up to 50 per cent.
“Through the aid of the Government, the council has purchased 20 machines which are going to ease the work of marking with great efficiency and we anticipate that the compilation of results will be concluded earlier than any other time before,” Magoha said.
Knec chairman George Magoha said due to the use of the machines, results of the exam will be released one week earlier than was the case in 2016.
Last year, the KCPE results were released on December 1. This means that this year, the council could announce the results this month. Magoha was speaking in Nyamira yesterday as he assessed the progress of examinations in the South Nyanza counties of Migori, Kisii, and Nyamira. He said he was satisfied with the way the tests were being conducted.
