Candidates eagerly await KCSE results announcement

Eager Kenyans are waiting to see whether CS Machogu will announce the best-performing schools.

Education CS Ezekiel Machogu releases Form One placement results for 2022 KCPE Candidates

As the Education Cabinet Secretary, Ezekiel Machogu, prepares to release the results of the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam later today on Friday, January 20, many teachers, students, and their families anxiously await the outcome.

CS Machogu left the Kenya National Examination Council a few minutes past 8:00 am to present the results to President William Ruto at State House before releasing them to the public.

The KCSE exam, which is taken by students in their final year of secondary school, is a crucial step in determining their future educational and career paths.

In 2022 881,416 candidates sat their exams between November and December.

The results not only determine which students will be able to move on to university but also play a role in determining which careers they will be eligible for in the future.

Despite the challenges the endured, many students and teachers have remained optimistic about the results.

Eager Kenyans are also waiting to see whether the Cabinet Secretary will announce the best-performing schools.

During the release of the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education in December 2022, he omitted the best-performing schools and students, only revealing the marks of the best candidate.

In the past, the government had a policy of not disclosing rankings, but they subsequently revealed the identities of the best candidates and their corresponding schools.

In 2021, Kenya High School was announced as the best school with a mean score of 10.467, followed closely by Kapsabet Boys with a score of 10.11.

In addition to traditional methods of obtaining results, such as visiting schools or receiving results via post, students also have the option to check their scores via SMS or online.

To check results via SMS, students can send an SMS with their index number followed by "KCSE" to 20076.

The service is available for Safaricom, Airtel, and Telkom network providers and usually incurs a cost of 25 KES per SMS.

To check results online, students can visit the official KCSE website, "www.knec-portal.ac.ke", and click on the "KCSE Results" tab.

After selecting the examination year, 2022, and entering their index number, students will be able to view their results.

It is important to note that results should only be checked once they have officially been released.

The release of the KCSE results will also be followed by university placement in the upcoming months.
