List Of Schools Likely To Have Issues In KCSE 2023 Results. The Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) candidates’ results for 2023 are just around the corner
The 2023 KCSE results will be available via the Kenya Education Management Information System (KEMIS) portal, which Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel announced.
Despite the fact that CS Machogu stated that the results would be disclosed next week since they were not ready, sources have revealed otherwise.
According to insiders, the results were ready a long time ago, and the delay in publishing them is not due to what the CS stated.
The findings were supposed to be disclosed on Friday, December 29th, but CS Machogu postponed the exercise, stating that the results are being compiled, verified, and validated.
We have completed the marking. We are currently accumulating the marks, verifying and validating them. You’re aware that it’s a lengthy procedure. “We want to release credible results by the end of the day,” Machogu explained in an exclusive interview.
This year’s KCSE exams were taken by a total of 903,260 students. New developments are surfacing even as schools wait for the results.
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is transferring secondary school principals and deputies and demanding them to report immediately.

Several counties have reported mass transfers of Principals and Deputy Principals, with others expecting changes.
According to Machogu, the KCSE results will be released in the second week of January. This means that the results will be made public between January 7th and January 13th, 2024.
Worryingly, some schools may have severe concerns with this year’s KCSE results.
These are the schools that were involved in KCSE exam cheating. During the KCSE exams, about nine school principals were suspended from exam management due to cheating allegations.
The accused schools may have KCSE marks degraded for candidates suspected of cheating, affecting their overall school mean results.
According to Machogu, the most common examples of examination misconduct this year included the use of foreign materials in exam rooms,
candidate impersonation, and coordination between invigilators and applicants.
A total of 46 candidates were directly involved in the exam misconduct.
Exam cheating was prevalent in Nyanza schools, with Kisii and Nyamira counties leading the way.
Despite strict marking, KCSE applicants in 2023 will benefit from a new grading system targeted at increasing the number of pupils enrolling in universities.
In August, the new grading scheme was announced. The Presidential Working Party on Education Reforms’ recommended grading system minimizes the number of compulsory topics and focuses on those in which students excel.
Students will be judged on their achievement in two mandatory subjects:
mathematics and any language other than English, Kiswahili, or National Sign Language.
This differs from the existing system, in which pupils are assessed on seven topics (English, Math, Kiswahili, two sciences, and two others).
As a result, more students will achieve higher total scores and so be eligible for postsecondary study.
The Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) has abolished the old system in which five subjects were required, a move that is likely to enhance the number of students qualifying for higher education.
Verification of results is ongoing and KNEC will post all the schools before tomorrow. We shall update you in due course
