KCPE 2023 Results Release Date, How To Get Results via 40054
The Kenya Certificate of Primary Education, KCPE, 2023 results will be released today on Thursday, 24th November at Mtihani House in Nairobi.
The exams have been released this week to allow for the placement of Form One students before Christmas and give parents ample time to prepare for school fees amid harsh economic times that have seen the cost of living rise.
KNEC CEO, Dr David Njengere, MBS, presided over the closing ceremony for KCPE English Composition and Kiswahili Insha marking exercise at St. Geroge’s Girls Secondary School, Nairobi, on Saturday evening.
Dr Njengere commended the teachers for the great work in steering KCPE exam since its inception to this moment of transition to the CBC curriculum. “You are the real heroes of 8-4-4 system and we appreciate you. We now urge and depend on you to similarly run CBC successfully.”
On 10th November, Education PS Belio Kipsang said that the marking of the KCPE exam had kicked off with the results expected out on 30th November.
Education PS Belio was speaking after visiting Naivasha Girls Secondary School, the PS lauded head teachers for the work they had done during the national exams.
“We expect the results out early so that placement of students in form one can be done before Christmas to allow parents ample time to prepare,” he said
At the same time, Kipsang downplayed the recent cases of KCSE exam malpractices adding that only seven center managers have been suspended. He attributed the low number of exams cheating this year to the move to collect exam papers twice a day and the support from the Ministries of Interior and ICT.
“We noticed that there was exposure of the exam materials when collected once and hence the directive to collect them twice in a day,” he said.
This year, at least 360,000 candidates sat the KCPE examination for the first time in 1985, ushering in the 8-4-4 system. Close to four decades later, the focus turns to the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC), where learners will be assessed through a new education system, CBC.
