Education CS George Magoha is set to release Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) results today at Mitihani House.
According to Knec data, 752,933 candidates were registered to sit this year’s KCSE exam in 10,437 centres.
However, 752,891 candidates sat for the exam in March and April after months of doubt due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The marking process commenced directly after the exam was concluded on April 16.
The exercise came to an end on May 7, 2021, with Prof. Magoha appreciating examiners from the Education Ministry and Teachers Service Commission.
“We experienced several cases where examination officials attempted to open the papers to expose them to candidates before the actual examinations started. We thwarted these efforts in a few centres countrywide, some of which I released to you during my weekly briefs.”
The marking process was conducted in about 33 national schools within the former provinces and saw at least 27, 284 examiners take part.
The process, however, came about with several grievances in line with poor pay and overdue allowances.
Magoha had initially supervised the conclusion of the exams last month at the Nairobi School.
He remarked that the exercise was smooth and successful.
