The secondary school students who sat for their KCSE exams towards the end of 2022 will know how they performed in the exams later today. This is because the Kenya National Examinations Council is set to release the results later today.
Marking of the exams happened this month unlike previously when marking was done in December. We saw the KCPE results released back in December and it is now time for those done with secondary school education to know their fate.
The KCSE 2022 exams saw 881,416 candidates in total take the exams. Out of these 44,3 644 (50.33%) were male and 437,772 (49.69%) were female. There were 1,146 (0.13%) candidates who obtained an overall Grade A in the 2022 KCSE examination compared with 1,138 (0.14%) candidates in 2021.
6407 candidates (1,962 – female and 4,445- male) scored A – (Minus) while 15,682 candidates (6,104 – female and 9,578 – male) scored B+. As you can see, male students are still outperforming female students.
You can check the KCSE 2022 results using two main options,via SMS or online.
Send the student index number via SMS to 20076.
- Open the messages app on your phone.
- Key in your KCSE index number
- Send to 20076
This option works with all network including Safaricom, Airtel, Telkom and even Equitel. After sending, you will get a text back with the results.
Every SMS you send will cost KES 25.
Since it costs money, this option is not ideal for everyone. For the next one, go directly to the KNEC website to check. With the website, you may have to exercise some patience as the number of people doing the same might be high and this may slow down the website.
For the 2022 KCSE exams 14 counties had more male than female candidates in the 2022 KSCE compared to 17 counties in 2021
When announcing the results, Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu said there were no irregularities in the 2022 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination. He also said that the ministry of Education devised various mechanisms to curb cheating.
