Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu on Thursday, December 28 announced the release dates for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination (KCSE) 2023 results.
According to the CS, the results whose marking ended on December 13, will be released in the second week of January 2024.
Machogu further added that the candidates’ grade compilation, validation and verification is ongoing.
Notably, the KCSE exam marking period began on November 27th after the last paper was sat on November 24.
KNUT on KCSE 2023
Also, the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) had on December 23 urged the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) to give examiners more time for accurate grading.
Nevertheless, this came after some speculations that KNEC would be releasing the exams before the year ends.
Led by KNUT national vice chairperson Aggrey Namisi, the union pleaded for a thorough analysis of grades.
“Please CS Machogu, we are not in a hurry, give the markers time to analyze results well before you release.
We don’t want to experience what happened during the KCPE examination release,” Namisi said.
Furthermore, according to Namisi, a notable point of contention was the issue of exam cheating.
The union went on to prompt appeals to CS Machogu to uphold the integrity of the education system.
On the other hand, concerns were raised about the hasty release of KCPE 2023 results by KNEC.
Notably, errors also included the awarding of marks to students for subjects they did not sit, raising questions about the integrity of the examination process.
KNEC also issued an alert to Kenyans warning them against fraudsters.

In the December 11 statement, the examination council noted that no individual has the ability to influence the scores of any national examination.
“Do not fall prey to fraudsters purporting to be able to adjust scores. Absolutely no one can influence the scores of any national examination,” warned the council.
Notably, the warning comes following a series of fraudulent messages being used by fraudsters to rob off innocent Kenyans.
KNEC went on to share one of the text messages being used by the fraudsters, labelling it as a fake text and disassociated itself from all other similar texts.
