KNEC Addresses Reports On Upgrading Of 2023 KCSE Results. Reports claiming that the results of the 2023 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination have been upgraded have been rejected by the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC).
The Examination Council cautioned Kenyans in a statement released on Monday, December 11, not to fall for scammers who claim to help applicants get high scores simply by disclosing their index numbers.
“Avoid falling for con artists claiming to be able to change KCSE results. Nobody can ever affect the results of any national exam, according to KNEC.
The scammers’ fictitious mail claims that hopefuls must send Ksh 9,000 in order to register.
” Hallo send 9k ya registration nikifanyie mpango wa upgrading ya KCSE inaendelea sa hii NB requiremnents Random num ‘school code . index num ya strong student and weak students” the fake message read
KNEC recently dismissed reports that cases of exam malpractice had been reported, hence leading to the suspension of the ongoing KCSE marking exercise.
According to a post published in a fake Facebook post purporting to be that of Education Cs Ezekiel Machogu , seven cases of exam malpractice have been repotted as examiners are on with marking the exams.

A total of 903,260 candidates enrolled for this year’s KCSE exams.
