The Kenya Certificate of Primary Education results is expected to be released anytime today. The exam which was done by 1.2 million candidates nationwide is to be released anytime today from the Nation Examinations Council head offices in Nairobi.
The 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams have concluded, marking the second-to-last year of the exam before the 8-4-4 system of education is phased out in primary schools next year. Over 1.2 million candidates took the exams, which were administered from November 28 to 30.
Education officials in Kenya have reportedly been put on standby to attend the release ceremony for the results, which will be the first KCPE exam release overseen by Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu. The results will be released from the newly completed headquarters of the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC).
Form One selection, which allows students to choose their secondary schools, is expected to follow the release of the KCPE results, likely after the holiday season. This will give parents time to prepare their children before schools open on January 23.
While KCPE candidates eagerly await their results, those in Grade 6 who took the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) can rest easy. The Presidential Working Party on Education Reforms has recommended that the assessment not be used for placement in junior secondary school, taking away the high stakes commonly associated with national exams. Instead, these learners will transition to junior secondary school in their current primary schools.
The minister of education has released the code for SMS confirmation for the awaited results. To get the student's result, send the student's index number to 20076. the process will cost 25 shillings.
The Teachers Service Commission CEO, Nancy Macharia, has also announced that TSC will be doing a massive recruitment of teachers, and applications are ongoing.
