Update: 29.12.2014: KCPE 2014 Exam Results Released

The ministry also advised parents and pupils to check the KCPE results 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.

Slightly less than half of the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education candidates who sat the examination in 2014 attained at least 250 out of 500 marks.

Education Cabinet Secretary Jacob Kaimenyi, while officially releasing the results on Monday morning, said the performance was relatively the same as last year.

He said 436,814 students got more that 251 marks, representing 49.61 per cent of those who sat the exam, compared with 49.71 per cent last year.

More than 880,000 candidates sat the exam in 24,278 centres across the country this year, an increase from 2013, when 839,000 candidates took part in 23,819 centres.

NO RANKING

The candidates can access the results as soon as they are released by sending their index numbers through SMS to 22252.

They can also download their results by logging onto the Kenya National Examinations Council’s website, www.knec.ac.ke, and keying in their index numbers.

Last month, the Education Ministry abolished the ranking of schools and candidates to reduce cut-throat competition and cheating in national examinations.

The new policy was aimed at ending unethical practices by teachers in the rush for top positions.

While releasing the results on Monday, Prof Kaimenyi defended the decision not to release any orders of performance ranking, saying there were more demerits of performance ranking that were benefits.

TEACHER AND STUDENT MORALE

The Cabinet secretary urged the media to respect the decision of the ministry, asking them not to do any ranking in a “kienyeji” way.

He said using the mean score alone did not accurately reflect the performance of a school as there are other factors that would have to be considered, including the facilities available.

Besides, he said, ranking affects the morale of teachers and students in schools that are deemed to be regularly performing poorly.

“Your self-esteem goes down. It kills innate talent and allows stigmatisation,” Prof Kaimenyi said.

The CS also said ranking creates unfavourable competition as it was not fair to compare schools with distinct differences.

Many schools had even stopped teaching non-examinable subjects such as music and the arts as a result, he said.

He said the competition had given rise to unscrupulous practices including illegal tuition during weekends and holidays although it had been banned.

KCPE Results 2014 Aggregates

15. 78 percent of the candidates attained 301 and 350 marks.

28.02 percent got 201 to 250 marks.

16.5 percent got 151 to 200 marks.

5.59 percent scored between 101 and 150 marks.

Less than one percent scored below 100 marks.

Despite an increase in this year’s candidature by five percent, Kaimenyi said the performance was comparable to the 2013 results.

The number of examination irregularities increased this year with a record of 1,702 students involved. Although Kaimenyi said it was low, he warned that any cheating will not be tolerated.

Cheating was reported mainly in English and Kiswahili and was mostly collusion involving an entire classroom, parents, invigilators and teachers.

In 2014, there was an increase of 17 percent of candidates with special needs who sat the exam compared to the previous year in which 1, 785 were examined.

The highest number of them were candidates with physical disabilities (695).

44 candidates did their exam while in hospital as 248 sat the exam in prisons.

Others included 666 candidates with hearing impairment.

Kaimenyi however was disgruntled that students with special needs in the country are still being discriminated and not receiving proper treatment like other students.

He urged schools that turn them away because of their impairment to cease the inhuman treatment.

The ratio between girls and boys was also tight with 437, 288 girls and 443, 258 boys sitting the 2014 KCPE.

Whereas the girls ratio increased by five percent, Kaimenyi was concerned why the number of boys who sat the examination was on a decline trend and ordered for investigations.

However, he also expressed concerns over the plight of girls who are still facing challenges of early marriages that force them out of school.

Kaimenyi said 687,000 of the 889,000 KCPE candidates will be absorbed in secondary schools to cover those who scored over 200 marks.

According to the CS, the government had upgraded extra 27 secondary schools to the national level bring the total number of national secondary schools to 105.

He father promised the candidates who will not get selected to join form one that they will have the alternative of enrolling in polytechnics and vocational training centers.

 

KCPE Results 2014: Govt abolishes student and school ranking on exam performance

The ranking of schools in national examinations has been banned to eliminate cut-throat competition among institutions.

Form Four and Standard Eight candidates will also not be ranked on the basis of their scores.

The new rules come into effect with those who sat the exams this year. The new policy is expected to end unethical practices by teachers in the rush for top positions.

Form One selection will now be determined by quotas, performance, affirmative action and the candidates’ school choices, according to a circular sent to schools this week.

This effectively means that candidates from public primary schools will secure more places in the national and top county schools compared to those from private schools. “Ranking of schools and students on the basis of national examination results, therefore, is discontinued with immediate effect,” says Education Principal Secretary Bellio Kipsang in the circular copied to county and district education officials.

However, the circular does not prescribe an alternative criteria to be used in gauging performance of schools and their candidates. It only spells out a raft of new guidelines and regulations aimed at improving school management and lowering learning costs.

The directive brings to an end a tradition in which national exams have been used as the only tool for grading schools.

The ranking method has been cited as a leading cause of unethical routine by some schools where bright candidates are registered in different streams from the rest to maintain top slots in the national list

Some schools have also been forcing weak learners to repeat classes while registering the weak ones in satellite schools.

CONDUCT REGULAR VISITS

Dr Kipsang says the government will conduct regular visits to schools to see if the new rules are being followed.

The rules are a blow to private schools because they retain the contentious Form One selection formula that favours pupils from public schools in admissions to the elite national schools.

The method has been challenged several times in court by private schools whose pupils have missed out on national school places despite attaining high marks in the examinations.

The formula is based on the notion that learners in private schools enjoy access to superior teaching materials and enough teachers as opposed to their counterparts in public schools.
“The number to be admitted from either public or private primary schools will be proportionate to the candidature in either category,” Dr Kipsang says in the regulations to be enforced in January.

The rules also put a stop to conversion of day schools into boarding schools unless approval is obtained from the Cabinet Secretary.

THREE STREAMS

County Education Boards have also been ordered not to register any new schools without clearance from the Cabinet Secretary.

New schools will only be sanctioned on the basis of their viability as determined by their proximity to other schools and the number of people in the area.

Public boarding secondary schools will have at least three streams with a class size of not more than 45 students each.

“Day schools already established in immediate neighbourhoods and have not raised a minimum of two streams with a class size of 45 that makes them viable will be merged except in arid areas where those with a single stream of as low as 25 in a class will be considered.”

The regulations are from recommendations of a task force on secondary school fees, chaired by former assistant Education minister Kilemi Mwiria.

In line with the task force’s recommendations, Dr Kipsang says public schools will be classified into three categories for the purpose of disbursement of grants, boarding, day and special schools. But for selection of Form One candidates, public schools will be classified into national, extra-county, county, sub-county and special.

As a result of the classifications day schools will be expected to charge annual fees of Sh11,105, boarding Sh38,969 and special schools Sh22,830. The government is expected to provide a subsidy of Sh12,780 per student per year for the regular schools and Sh32,605 for special schools.

The circular also asks the Teachers Service Commission to review the work load of teachers and cautions against employing many teachers on contract, a trend that leads to high learning costs.
