KCPE Results 2016

KCPE Results 2016 is Out…

Updated: 2.12.2016

Celebrations broke out in Coast schools, with the traditional high performers retaining their superiority in KCPE results released yesterday.

The best candidate in the region, Gideon Maina of Mwatate Junior Academy in Taita Taveta, scored 423 marks, in exams termed the most credible.

Private schools Light Academy, Saint Kevin, Aga Khan, Nyali Primary and Marjoy in Mombasa and the public Ganjoni Primary School had the best results.

The best girl, Angela Jaden, who sat KCPE at Ganjoni Primary School, scored 419 marks ahead of Zainab Zaiddun of Aga Khan who scored 415.

Although the best candidate in Coast scored 444 last year, parents and teachers yesterday termed this year’s overall performance better because the examination was administered in an environment of peace and integrity.

Muhammad Hassan of Aga Khan scored 422 marks while Martin Oduor of Saint Kevin scored 421 marks. Nixon Munene of Light Academy scored 420 marks.

Nationally, little-known Daisy Special School in Kakamega produced the country’s top candidate, Victor Oduor Odhiambo, with 437 marks. Also, Kaboi Kevin Ngatia of Tender Care Academy in Nairobi was second with 436 marks.

Ogongo Titus Anyona of Bungoma’s Marell Academy and Gitonga Caroline Gatwiri of Freds Academy in Meru tied in position three with 434 marks.

Yesterday, Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i termed this year’s results “clean and credible”.

“The examinations were very fruitful,” Dr Matiang’i said, attributing the success to a multi-sectoral approach in their management.

The release of the results, which caught everyone by surprise, only lasted two hours. The event normally attended by all county directors of education, was only graced by top ministry officials.

KCPE Results 2016 – No Cancellation

Flanked by Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery and Joe Mucheru of Information and Communications Technology, Matiang’i said that only 21 examination malpractices were recorded. Last year, some 7,089 KCPE exam candidates had their results cancelled.

“I wish to inform the country that for the first time in the history of the KCPE examination, there was no cancellation of results for any candidate,” he announced.

He said the success was due to various security measures put in place during the administration and management of the exams.

Mucheru said the government fully embraced technology in the administration and processing of the examinations.

“The services were efficient because we looked at all possibilities of ensuring credible examinations. The results are credible, timely and accurate because of technology,” said Mucheru.

Matiang’i said that the overall performance of this year’s candidates dropped compared to last year. “The performance was slightly lower than that of 2015,” he said, adding that this year’s top candidate would not make it to the top 90 best performers of last year.

Data released yesterday shows that only 5,143 candidates scored 400 marks and above against 7,560 who posted similar grades last year, representing a 31 per cent drop.

Some 207,141 candidates scored between 301 and 400 marks, while the majority – 501,552 – scored between 201 and 300. Another 6,747 candidates scored 100 marks and below, while those with between 101 and 200 marks were 221,438.

Matiang’i said that all candidates with 400 marks and above would be admitted to national schools.

“I wish to assure the public that all candidates who scored 400 marks and above will be admitted to national schools irrespective of their gender, region or centre,” he said.

Matiang’i said all candidates will report to Form One by January 9, and assured parents and guardians that appropriate arrangements are in place to admit the children.

He said admission will be based on merit, quotas, equity, affirmative action and candidate choices.

“Form One selection will be complete by December 9. All parents should have Form One admission letters for their children by Christmas,” said Matiang’i.

Girls performed better than boys in most subjects. Girls did especially well in English Composition, Kiswahili, Sign Language, Science, Social Studies and Religion.

On the other hand, boys beat girls in Mathematics and English.

A total of 942,021 candidates sat the examinations between December 1 and 3. Some 168,800 professionals were recruited to invigilate and supervise the exams. Another 5,047 examiners were involved in the marking of the English Composition, Kiswahili Insha and Kenya Sign Language.

Matiang’i announced that special candidates registered improved performance and attributed the grades to strategies laid out to take care of special interests of the candidates. The top candidate out the 1,950 special needs candidates scored 421 marks out of the possible 500 marks.

As he released the results, Matiang’i sounded a firm warning to examination cartels and schools that employ corrupt ways to popularise their institutions.

He said from next year, firm examination safeguards will be implemented to build on the gains registered this year.

“In 2017, we shall implement more reforms and seek alternative and better ways of ensuring national examinations are safeguarded,” he said.

He said private schools that register more than one examination centres will be de-registered.

He said investigations by the ministry had revealed that schools register weaker pupils at sister “satellite” examination centres to boost the mean scores of their main “marketing” schools.

“I have instructed Knec to ensure that no institution will register two centres. We will adopt the one centre approach because this habit is traumatising to children,” he said.

KCPE Results 2016 – Private Candidates

Matiang’i also said starting next year, all private candidates will sit examinations in government institutions.

“We will no longer allow private centres because half of them are conduits for examination leakage through impersonation,” said Matiang’i.

And on gender, the results also revealed that parity remained the same compared to previous years.

Twenty three counties – Mombasa, Nyandarua, Kiambu, Machakos, Kitui, Embu, Meru, Makueni, Nairobi, Trans Nzoia, Uasin Gishu, Nakuru, Kericho, Nandi, Elgeyo Marakwet, Busia, Bungoma, Kakamega, Vihiga, Kisii and Kisumu, Nyamira – registred more girls than boys.

“Of the candidates who sat KCPE, 49.7 per cent were girls and 50.3 per cent were boys. This gender composition has comparatively remained the same over the last three years,” said Matiang’i.

Speaking at the launch of the results, Nkaissery said President Uhuru Kenyatta’s directive has led to credible examinations results.

“The future is bright and we will never go back to days of getting grades we don’t deserve,” said Nkaissery.

Kenya National Examination Council Chairman George Magoha warned persons keen to influence results at marking stage. “If you try you will regret,” he said.

KCPE Result Slip 2016

The ministry of education advises parents and pupils to check the KCPE results and KCPE result slip for any anomaly such as incorrect candidate’s name, school name and code as well as wrong subject grade and report to Knec within a month after the announcement.

KCPE Results 2016 Released

Updated: 1.12.2016

Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has released the 2016 KCPE exam results.

In the results released at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) in Nairobi, the top candidate scored 436 out of 500 marks and only 5,190 obtained over 400 marks.

This is a drop of 2,000 candidates, or 31 percent, compared with 2015, when over 7,000 scored 400 marks and above.

KCPE Results 2016 – No Cheating

And for the first time in Kenya’s KCPE history, Dr Matiang’i said all candidates would receive their results as there was not a single case of cheating.

Only 21 cases of malpractices and attempted cheating were reported across the country, he said.

But Dr Matiang’i failed to meet the expectations of the nation when he announced that ranking of schools and candidates was not effected, saying the law ordering return to the old tradition took effect late.

KCPE Results 2016 – President Uhuru Kenyatta Briefed

President Kenyatta assented to the 2016 Kenya National Examination (Amendment) Act in late August and came into effect in October.

Before heading to KICD, Dr Matiang’i briefed President Kenyatta on the results at State House, Nairobi.

Some 952, 021 candidates wrote the tests from November 1 to November 3 — an evaluation that marks the transition from primary to secondary schools.

Of these, 50.3 percent were boys. A total of 1,950 special needs candidates sat for the exams, with the top managing 421 marks.

KCPE Results 2016 – Exam Fees

The Cabinet secretary said, starting next year, the government will pay KCPE exams fees for all candidates in both private and public schools.

And in addition to the ongoing efforts to curb cheating, Dr Matiang’i said all private candidates will have to write their tests from centres approved by the Education ministry.

KCPE Results 2016 – Form One Selection

Dr Matiang’i said Form One selection begins immediately and that letters of admission would be given to students before December 25.

He said selection process to join Form One will be finalized by December 9.

The CS added that the first batch of students to join Form One will be admitted to respective secondary schools on January 9, 2017.

KCPE Results 2016 Released

This is the announcement by Education Cabinet Secretary, Dr Fred Matiang’i, during the releasing of the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination results on Thursday, December 1 at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) in Nairobi.

Traditionally, Form One students have reported to their respective schools in February.

The CS said that unlike in the previous years where the selection process was carried out the following year, the process would commence immediately.

“The selection of Form One students begins immediately. We are not going to wait until the following year like previously,” noted Dr Matiang’i.

The CS sad that on December 9, the Ministry of Education officials would assemble at the same venue (KICD) to complete the selection process, especially of the students joining national schools.

He noted that despite there being a significant drop in the performance of the pupils this year, the exams were highly credible with only 21 cases of malpractices or attempted malpractices being experienced.

Over 950,000 pupils wrote the 2016 KCPE exam early November.

Last year, the Ministry of Education issued new guidelines on the selection process.

Releasing the guidelines last year, Education Principal Secretary, Belio Kipsang, wrote to County Directors of Education and secondary school heads saying that the selection process would be on merit, equity and choice of schools.

He said that five top boys and girls in every sub-county would be placed in national schools of their choice.

“The top three candidates will be selected first across all sub-counties and then the remaining two according to their marks because there are areas with very few students hence the equity requirement,” he said.

Other pupils in every sub-county would be selected according to their marks between public and private schools.

Candidates who are not admitted to schools of their choice will be placed in schools of comparable level of performance.

Why You Should Expect Fewer A’s In KCPE Results 2016

Updated: 1.12.2016
Source: Standard Newspaper

Kenyans should expect fewer candidates to attain grade A, examinations board chairman has said Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) boss George Magoha (right) said the number of students who get the grade will reduce because of tighter quality controls.

He said there will be a total break from the past as marking will be tightly monitored and supervised just the way the examination was guarded.

Prof Magoha spoke in Kisumu Boys’ High School yesterday before the start of the final Physics Practical paper where he had made an impromptu visit before proceeding to the adjacent Kisumu Girls’ High School then to Kakamega.

“The reason why you have seen a lot of Government involvement is because we have gotten into a stage where Kenyan examination papers are being questioned elsewhere and holders even re-examined elsewhere. That is to say that our certificates papers are about to become worthless,” he revealed.

He added that in any population, the ‘A materials’ fall between five and 10 per cent, and therefore Kenya being a normal country cannot keep producing so many A’s that surpass what would be in a normal distribution curve.

“Anything outside that bracket (of 5-10 per cent) is suspicious or extraordinary and for a school to have 96.6 per cent scoring A, then that is stupidity of the highest level and nobody should be associated with such,” Magoha said.

He said Kenyans’ obsession with A grade had pushed the matter too far, making even those who do not have the capacity to strive by hook or crook to get an A.

“For our country we have over-emphasised on individual ‘letter performances’ which are just letters,” he said.

Regarding the marking of examinations and the fear of doctoring of the results, Magoha was categorical that Knec would ensure that very child gets what is due to him or her.

“As I said that the exam shall not leak, I am assuring you again that the way this exam is going to be marked, the marks that are going to be recorded, is going to be the mark that the student has attained,” he said.

He added: “We are going to use a conveyor belt system, where if 10 people have marked your paper, there would be no need for remarking. And for those who will be going to the marking centres with other ideas of stealing exams, don’t destroy your career as (we) have sealed all the loopholes.”

Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers Secretary General Akello Misori urged Knec to weed culprits at the ICT department who doctor results.

“Knec must enhance the capacity of the ICT department and closely monitor some culprits who have been at the centre of doctoring results to ensure that particular schools get highest grades,” Mr Misori said.

He praised Knec and the Education ministry for waging a war against examination cheating.

“The work done by (Education Cabinet Secretary Fred) Matiangi, Magoha and the team is remarkable as this is a step towards bringing back the glory our national examinations were losing pretty fast,” he opined.

Meanwhile, Nyanza region for the first time in years recorded fewer cases of irregularities in KCSE, with 15 arrests made.

According to Regional Education Co-ordinator Richard Chepkawai, the exercise was above board, except for the few arrests and normal hitches also witnessed in other areas, which included death of candidates and deliveries.

In Siaya County, four people; an invigilator, supervisor and two students will appear in court on January 4, 2017 and January 4, 2017 for the hearing of a case where they are accused of participating in exam irregularities on November 10.


KCPE results 2016 to be released any day after December 8 2016

KCPE Results 2016 will be released any day after December 8, 2016.

“On November 12, all examiners will report for actual marking of candidate scripts. Processing of KCPE examination results will be done concurrently,” Kiraithe said.

He said the date for the release of the examination results will be determined by the Kenya national examination council in liaison with the education ministry.

With respect to the KCSE, Kiraithe said the examinations had been progressing well at the 9,157 centers across the country.

He said 25 KCSE marking centres have already been identified and settled on.

“Examination papers will be returned from examination centers as they are completed. Receiving, sorting and packing of scripts in readiness for dispatch to the marking centers has been scheduled to take place between November 8 and December 13, 2016,” the spokesman said.

“So far, the examinations have been running smoothly, it is evident that the measures put in place by the government to curb cheating and restore confidence in the national examination system have worked,” he said.

Kiraithe said KNEC and the ministry are reviewing instances where minor anomalies or challenges have been reported.

He said the examinations—which include new security features—were printed externally and flown into the country within days of the commencement of exams.

“The whole examination process is being rigorously overseen by KNEC and the ministry of education,” he said.

KCPE Results 2016: School ranking back after Uhuru signs Bill into law

Updated 31.08.2016

Kenyans will know the best-performing schools and students from next year after President Uhuru Kenyatta signed into law a Bill that reinstates ranking according to performance in national exams.

The President assented to the Kenya National Examinations Council (Amendment) Bill on Wednesday making it compulsory for the examiner to rank schools based their performance in KCPE and KCSE.

The Bill was sponsored by Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa (Ford-Kenya) and sought to overturn a ban on ranking imposed by former Education Cabinet Secretary Jacob Kaimenyi in 2014. It received overwhelming support in the National Assembly and was easily adopted in early August.

The President’s move means that Prof Kaimenyi’s ban has been overturned and that his successor in the ministry, Fred Matiang’i, would be expected to develop rules to ensure structured ranking.

When he imposed the ban Prof Kaimenyi, now the Land minister, said ranking was one of the contributors to school unrest, saying doing away with it would help restore calm.

However, that seemed not to be the case, as several schools experienced unrest this year even without ranking over the last two years.

FROM ‘EXCITEMENT’ TO ‘CONFUSION’

The Bill sought to empower “the Kenya National Examination Council to rank schools and candidates based on the national examinations conducted and administered by the Council.”

The President welcomed, it saying it will address problems encountered in ranking of schools in the past.

“The new law seeks to address the challenges facing ranking of schools and candidates like the current abolishment of the ranking system in national examinations without proper consultations.

“The law therefore, empowers the Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) to rank schools and candidates based on the national examinations conducted and administered by the Council,” said the President in a dispatch to newsrooms.

When it was brought up for debate in the House, members said ranking would boost performance as schools that perform poorly would strive to improve in succeeding exams.

“The excitement associated with [the] release of national examinations results is not there anymore and has been replaced by confusion as to which schools post improved results,” Mr Wamalwa said when he tabled the Bill in the National Assembly.

When Prof Kaimenyi abolished school ranking in 2014, he cited the exercise as the cause of unethical practices by schools that led to exam cheating.

Some schools, he said then, were registering candidates in different streams from the rest to maintain top slots in the national examinations.

OTHER KEY BILLS SIGNED

The President also signed into law other key Bills, including the Access to Information Bill that compels public institutions to ensure information sought by citizens is made available.

The Bill was sponsored by Nyeri Woman Representative Priscilla Nyokabi and was among those that were supposed to be passed by Parliament by August 27.

The President also assented to the Controller of Budget Bill, the Community Land Bill, the Protection of Traditional Knowledge and Cultural Expressions Bill, the Forest Conservation and Management Bill, the Lands Laws Bill, the Miscellaneous Fees and Levies Bill and the Seeds and Plant Varieties (Amendment) Bill.
