Learners and parents who have questions or concerns on the KCPE 2023 results have a 30-day window period starting from the date when the results were released (November 23, 2023) to raise them, the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has revealed.

In a statement on Saturday, 25 November 2023, KNEC Chief Executive Officer David Njengere advised learners and parents to collect their provisional results slip from their respective schools and raise any queries for review within the window period that expires thirty days after the release of the results.

“Candidates have been advised to visit their schools and collect the official provisional result slips and raise any queries for review of their results, if any, within the stipulated 30 days period.” Njengere explained in the statement.

He added that KNEC has received appeals and acted on them.

"KNEC also received queries from candidates with low marks in some subjects, mainly in English and Kiswahili. KNEC has reviewed all the appeals and found that there were one hundred and thirty-three (133) candidates affected. These have all been addressed and results for the affected candidates updated appropriately." Read the statement.

Some candidates had misaligned results with the grades in Kiswahili placed under the Kenyan Sign Language.

Other subjects affected by the recently-released results are Science and Social Studies and Religious Education which were truncated incorrectly.

Results obtained via SMS for the subjects were missing the + or - sign as expected with KNEC brining the same to the attention of the service provider to resolve the matter.

"The error affected only the SMS results due to configuration issues, as the results in the KNEC portal are accurate," Njengere explained.

Michael Warutere from Riara Springs Academy secured the top spot in the 2023 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations results that were released on Wednesday, scoring an impressive 428 marks.

About 1.4 million students across the country sat for the KCPE making the final cohort to sit for the exams.

The national examination will be replaced by the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) examinations.
