Education Cabinet Secretary, George Magoha, on Saturday, April 23, released the 2021 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) results.
Magoha released the results after presenting them to President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House, Nairobi, where he briefed him on the performance of the 2021 candidates.
Magoha announced that 1138 scored a mead grade of A while 145,000 students attained a mean grade of C+ and above.
Over 800,000 candidates sat for the national examinations which officially started on March 14.President Uhuru Kenyatta and other government officials being briefed on the 2021 KSCE results by Education CS George Magoha on April 23, 2022.PSCU
Magoha noted that secondary schools posted positive results in the national examinations with Nyakeore Secondary school in Nyamira County emerging as the best sub-county school in the country.
The announcement of the results by the CS comes as a surprise to many as KCPE/KCPE results are usually released on weekdays.
Insiders say that the release was delayed by a day following the demise of the Third President of Kenya, Mwai Kibaki.
Magoha was accompanied by top officials from the Ministry of Education and other stakeholders including the Teachers Services Commission (TSC) Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Nancy Macharia.
The results were released less than a week after teachers finalised the marking of the examination.
During the exam period, various cases of exam malpractice were reported even as the Magoha maintained that no exam papers leaked. However, he stated that they faced challenges of early exposure by center managers.
This forced the Ministry to revise the opening time of the containers from 6:00am to 6:30am in select counties.
During the release of results, Magoha affirmed that the national examinations scheduled to begin in November had been safeguarded adding that no exam will be leaked despite leaving office in August.
"I advise the Cabinet Secretaries that will come after not to drop the ball in safeguarding the integrity of our national examinations," he urged.Students sit for a Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination (KCSE) examFile
