KCPE 2015 Results to be Released on 30.12.2015
More than 900,000 candidates who sat Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams in November will know their results next week on Wednesday.
The new Cabinet Secretary for Education, Fred Matiang’i, will preside over the traditional ritual of releasing the results at Mitihani House in Nairobi.
This will be his first major assignment since taking over from Prof Jacob Kaimenyi, who has been shifted to the Ministry of Land.
President Uhuru Kenyatta appointed Dr Matiang’i to the ministry last month, following a reshuffle that saw him moved from the Information docket.
This year witnessed a record number of KCPE candidates, after 937,467 candidates registered for it. This was 48,304 more than last year’s.
In a notice in Monday’s dailies, the national examiner told the candidates to get ready for the results of the tests that were marred by widespread leakage.
The notice by the Kenya National Examinations Council Chief Executive Officer Joseph Kivilu indicates the possibility of withheld results due to cheating or other reasons as has been the norm in the recent years.
“Candidates with withheld/pended results will receive a letter through the respective head teacher explaining why the examination results have been withheld/pended,” read the notice.
As has been the case before, the candidates will be able to get their results upon sending their index numbers to code number 22252 after official release by the minister on December 30
