KCPE Results 2017

The 2017 Standard Eight national exam results are out. Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi released the results on Tuesday morning at Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development in the capital Nairobi.

Dr Matiangi said no single irregularity was reported in the tests that mark transition from primary to secondary school.

Of the 1,003,556 candidates who wrote the exams, 9,846 scored 400 marks and above out of the possible 500. Those who scored below 100 marks dropped from 6,747 in 2016 to 2,360 in 2017.

The top candidate scored 455 out of 500 marks, an 18 mark improvement from last year’s 437. “The best candidate in last year’s exam would not be even top 20 in this year’s results thus showing remarkable improvement,” he said.

Matiang’i was keen to note that the marking in this year’s KCPE results had a 99.98% accuracy rating with every student who sat this year’s exam expected to get their results as there were no cancellations, missing marks or any case of malpractice recorded.

This year, the Kenya National Examinations Council used the automated Optical Mark Recognition machines that fast-tracked the process of marking with results being released just 19 days after the national exam ended.

The CS said all the over 9,000 candidates who managed 400 marks and above would join national secondary schools whether they sat the tests at a private or public exam centre.

“Form One selection will start on December 4, 2017,” Dr Matiangi said.

In a rare proud moment, the Education CS announced that six students in the top 100 list came from special needs schools further adding that the government has committed to improving their infrastructure in a bid to empower students with special needs.

He attributed this year’s success in exam and delivery results to a multi-agency collaboration in the sector saying it has indeed yielded results.

The release came almost a month earlier than previous years after marking was fast-tracked by optical machines. The 20 new scanning machines, bought by the Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) at a cost of Sh90 million, replaced 20 old scanners bought more than 17 years ago.

KCPE Results 2017 Summary

  1. This year’s KCPE top candidate got 455 marks compared to last year’s 437, a remarkable improvement as Education Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i rightly put it, ,during the official release of the results at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) on Tuesday.
  2. An estimate 9,846 candidates scored 400 marks and above compared to last year’s 5,190.
  3. Another 2,360 candidates managed to get less than 100 marks from a high of over 6,000 candidates last year.
  4. All 2017 candidates will be able to receive their results once they send an SMS with their index numbers to 22252 or visiting the KNEC website at www.knec-portal.ac.ke and enter their index number respectively.
  5. Matiang’i also emphasized that all those who managed 400 marks and above will be admitted to national schools across the country irrespective of whether they attended a public or a private school. This as he justly said there was a need to nurture and serve school going children in order to secure their future.
  6. Another notable development witnessed from this year’s results is the gender parity. 27 out of all 47 counties registered more girls compared to what has been the norm in previous years.
  7. Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) Chair Prof George Magoha strongly noted that this year’s KCPE examination was firmly set and secured. There were no issues in this year’s KCPE examination in regards to accessibility except for a few impassable roads due to the heavy rainfall. “We made sure that every child got an equal opportunity to sit for the exam”, he added.
  8. KNEC procured an additional 67,000 containers as compared 300 metallic containers in 2016 that were highly secured in various County Commissioners’ offices. Equally, security was top notch.
  9. The results come just about three weeks since the 2017 KCPE exam was completed; almost a month earlier than previous years after marking was fast-tracked by 20 optical machines.
  10. Six of the top 100 candidates came from special schools.

KCPE Results 2017: Meet Goldalyn Kakuya, best 2017 KCPE candidate

2017 KCPE Results: Goldalyn Kakuya

2017 KCPE Results: Goldalyn Kakuya

The search for the best pupil in the just released KCSE results is over. The crown goes to Goldalyn Kakuya from St Anne’s Junior Lubao in Kakamega County.

Kakuya, 14, defied all odds and beat 993,717 other pupils to emerge victorious with 455 marks scoring an A in all subjects.

She scored an impressive 99 in English and Kiswahili, followed by Science 88, Mathematics 85 and Social Studies and Religion 84 respectively.

In her victory speech, Kakuya, a special student, said she expected to pass the examination “but not to this extent”. She is torn between joining Kenya High School and M-Pesa Foundation Academy.

She wishes to study psychotherapy and be a psychiatrist as she loves “talking to people and anything related to the mind”.

“I dedicate this performance to all the people who have supported me through my education, teachers, friends, parents and the school,” she says.

It was however not a surprise for the school as the teachers say she always took the lead despite her poor health. She is also hailed as being a role model to her fellow students.

Her father is a manager at West Kenya Sugar while the mother is a lecturer at Kibabi University.

KCPE Results 2017 – Uhuru Kenyatta orders special KCPE, KCSE exams for candidates

President Uhuru Kenyatta has directed the Education ministry to set special supplementary exams to cater for students who failed to take the tests due to unavoidable circumstances.

He made the directive when he met Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i and senior ministry officials at Harambee House before Dr Matiang’i released the exams on Tuesday.

“The president has directed the CS and his ministry to set special supplementary examinations for a special cadre of students who because of compassionate reasons may usually have difficulty doing exams during the normal exams calendar,” State House spokesman Manoah Esipisu said in a statement.

Out of the 1,003,556 candidates who registered to sit the tests, 993,718 sat the three-day examinations under tight security.

While the exact number of students who failed to either start or finish the exams due to special needs cannot be put down to a number, the strict nature of the national exams calendar has in the past locked out students who fell sick.

These students, over the years, have had to re-register for the tests and sit them the next time they are offered, albeit a year later.

“These special examinations may be undertaken by students who may be ill, lose their parents, or give birth during the normal examinations calendar,” Mr Esipisu said of the president’s directive.

“This is already the practice around the world. We have been lagging behind that and I think it is time to bridge the gap.”

2017 KCPE Results: The return of public schools

Public primary schools, long outperformed and dominated by private institutions when it comes to national exam results seem to be crawling back to relevance and the government is promising lots of goodies.

Speaking while releasing the 2017 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCPE) exams, Education Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’i noted that the second best candidate came from a public school. He also announced that the number of candidates from schools in the top 100 slots also considerably increased this year.

According to the CS, the government will set up a special fund to allocate to all public schools that have produced students in the top 100 category for purposes of improving the infrastructure and growing their capacity.

“As we went round you can tell clearly that there was much more seriousness and focus in our candidates than last year. I am so grateful to the teachers. Primary school teachers are our heroes,” said Matiang’i.

2017 KCPE Results: No gap between boys and girls

The gap between boys and girls in this year’s KCPE examination was almost at par with 498,775 (50.19%) being boys while 494,943 (48.1%) were girls. The number of absentee candidates also fell significantly.

But 27 counties registered more girls than boys, with the CS exuding confidence that the ministry has, at last, achieved gender parity in education.

“Kakamega, Meru, Bungoma, Nairobi, Embu, Machakos, Vihiga, Kisii, Kitui, Makueni, Siaya, Busia, Nyamira, Tharaka Nithi, Trans-nzoia, Kisumu, Nakuru, Murang’a and Mombasa are some of the counties that registered slightly higher number of girls than boys,” added Matiang’i.

The number of children who scored below 100 marks also reduced. In 2016 6,747 candidates scored below the 100 mark but down years down the lane, only 2,360 achieved the fate.

This year, 9,846 candidates scored 400 and above marks as opposed to last year’s 5,143 candidates.

KCPE results to be released early as Knec gets machines to mark exam

The KCPE Results 2017 could be announced this month, the Kenya National Examinations Council has said.

George Magoha, the chairman of the council, said Knec had procured 20 machines at a cost of Sh100 million to enhance marking of scripts. According to Prof Magoha, acquisition of the automated Optical Mark Recognition machines, is set to reduce the work force by up to 50 per cent.

“Through the aid of the Government, the council has purchased 20 machines which are going to ease the work of marking with great efficiency and we anticipate that the compilation of results will be concluded earlier than any other time before,” Magoha said.

Knec chairman George Magoha said due to the use of the machines, results of the exam will be released one week earlier than was the case in 2016.

Last year, the KCPE results were released on December 1. This means that this year, the council could announce the results this month. Magoha was speaking in Nyamira yesterday as he assessed the progress of examinations in the South Nyanza counties of Migori, Kisii, and Nyamira. He said he was satisfied with the way the tests were being conducted.

KCPE Results 2016

KCPE Results 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 – 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 – 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.
