KCPE Results 2018: President Kenyatta hints at KCPE exam release tomorrow
President Uhuru Kenyatta has hinted that the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination results could be released on Monday November 19, 2018.
Speaking during the unveiling of Gachororo PCEA Church in Juja on Sunday, President Kenyatta said “and when we will announce the results tomorrow” before realizing his error and pulling back, much to the amusement of the crowd, saying “ah, now what have I said?”
The Head of State urged those who sat the exams to be satisfied with whatever grade they rightfully scored, adding that the government will ensure they all proceed to secondary school.
According to President Kenyatta, every pupil will have the secondary school enrollment letters before Christmas celebrations.
“When we will announce the results, I want to tell our children that because we know you did your best, do not be afraid just because you attained a particular grade because, like I said, the most important thing is that everyone who sat the Standard 8 exam will be admitted to Form One,” said the President.
He reiterated that the government will continue to cover education expenses for students including their school fees and purchasing learning materials, further challenging parents to do their part by purchasing school uniforms and ensuring that their children are fed.
“It is our responsibility to ensure that our young children access basic education up to secondary level and the government will provide opportunities in the vocational centers, in universities. Let us not allow our children to loiter and instead, let them be in school,” he said.
President Kenyatta also lauded all education stakeholders involved in the national examination for showcasing professionalism and recording the lowest number of exam malpractices.
“There was very little cheating or abuse during this year’s national exams and I would like to acclaim all stakeholders who participated in ensuring achievement of all these,” he said.
KCPE 2018 Results Release Date by KNEC
The KCPE Results 2018 is expected to be released this week – probably Wednesday 21st November, 2018 by the Education CS Amina Mohammed at the KICD Offices in Nairobi. Thereafter form one selection 2019 will begin. It is expected that by Jamhuri Day 12th December, 2018 all pupils will be knowing which secondary school they have been placed.
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 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.
- Another 2,360 candidates managed to get less than 100 marks from a high of over 6,000 candidates last year.
- All 2017 candidates will be able to receive their results once they send an SMS with their index numbers to 22252 or visiting the KNEC website at www.knec-portal.ac.ke and enter their index number respectively.
- 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.
- Another notable development witnessed from this year’s results is the gender parity. 27 out of all 47 counties registered more girls compared to what has been the norm in previous years.
- Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) Chair Prof George Magoha strongly noted that this year’s KCPE examination was firmly set and secured. There were no issues in this year’s KCPE examination in regards to accessibility except for a few impassable roads due to the heavy rainfall. “We made sure that every child got an equal opportunity to sit for the exam”, he added.
- 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.
- The results come just about three weeks since the 2017 KCPE exam was completed; almost a month earlier than previous years after marking was fast-tracked by 20 optical machines.
- Six of the top 100 candidates came from special schools.

KCPE Results – 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.”
