Education Cabinet Secretary Professor George Magoha has released the results of the Kenya Certificate of Primary School Education (KCPE).
The release of the results at Mitihani House, Nairobi comes only 21 days after 1,179,192 candidates in 28,460 schools sat for the national examinations. 199, 639 professionals were contracted for the exercise.
The marking of multiple choice papers was concluded in early April.
Term one of 2021 is scheduled to begin on July 26, 2021, after nearly a year of a disrupted school calendar due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Allaying fears that the current high Covid-19 infection rate in the country could prolong the reopening of schools, Prof Magoha, on April 12, assured Kenyans that there were no plans to further interfere with the school calendar.
“Avoid dancing with death. We are in the fourth week of the national examinations, almost concluding the process. Continue observing the Ministry of Health (MOH) guidelines in your institutions and avoid exposing yourselves,” said Prof Magoha.
