The Education Ministry has officially announced that the long-awaited results of the 2023 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination will be released on Thursday, November 23. Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu will preside over the release ceremony, which will take place at the newly established Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) headquarters in South B, Nairobi.
A total of about 1.4 million candidates diligently completed their KCPE exams, demonstrating the nation’s primary school students’ dedication and hard work. Furthermore, approximately 1.2 million students took Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) exams, specifically at the Grade 6 level.
It is worth noting that this group of students is the last to take the traditional KCPE as the educational landscape shifts toward full implementation of the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) in primary schools. As part of the evolving educational framework, students will now take the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) exams.
This shift reflects ongoing efforts to align the education system with contemporary educational approaches and ensure students’ development are in line with the demands of the world they will be navigating.
