KCPE Results to be Announced Today, As
Results for the more than one million candidates, who sat the 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination in March 2022 will be released today.
‘‘In terms of KCPE, I think we can more or less work with Monday or Tuesday according to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s diary,’’ said Magoha last week.
By last evening, all indications pointed at today’s release with inside sources confirming that all plans were complete.
“On marking of exams, it is already done and we are just doing a few things here and there to ensure that there are no gaps,” Prof Magoha said last week.
Sources who sought anonymity have confirmed that most of the candidates passed English.
Normally, the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) board meets to ratify results ahead of their mandatory briefing to the Head of State.
Magoha said the results would be released depending on President Kenyatta’s diary.
In previous years, Education chiefs and Council staff secured appointments to meet and brief President Kenyatta, on the morning of the day of release of results.
The release of results gives way to the scheduled transition to Grade Six by the pioneer Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) class.
Grade six transition will be happening in April and the pupils will sit for the end of primary education examinations in December. They will transition to Junior Secondary Schools next year when the normal school calendar resumes.
