The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has acknowledged that there were errors in some KCPE results, following concerns raised by a group of candidates who observed inconsistencies in their result slips.
KNEC has assured students that corrective measures would be taken promptly to rectify the identified errors.
Complaints from students highlighted instances of missing marks in certain subjects, and in some cases, students were credited with results for exams they did not actually take.
In one incident, a candidate scored 84A in English, 29D in Kiswahili, 88A in Mathematics, 76A in Science, and 84A in Social Studies and Religious Education, amounting to a total of 361 marks. However, the candidate raised concerns about the Kiswahili paper, alleging that only the results for the Insha paper were recorded.
Another candidate shared a slip, revealing that results for one paper were not provided.
The candidate achieved scores of 72B in English, 81A in Kenya Sign Language, 84A in Mathematics, 76A in Science, and 80A in Social Studies and Religious Education, totaling 393 marks.
Surprisingly, the results for the Kenya Sign Language Exams, which the student did not sit for, were included, while the results for the Kiswahili paper were missing.
Education CS Ezekiel Machogu released the results on Thursday, November 23, with the top candidate scoring 428 marks.
Out of the over 1.4 million students who took the national examinations starting on November 30, it was reported that more than 9,000 students failed to sit for the exams due to undisclosed reasons.
During the event, Cs Machogu announced plans to conduct special exams in January 2024 for students who missed the national examinations this year.
