2021 KCPE results to be released Today, how to check results by sms and Online

The fate of 1.2 million candidates who took the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education exams in 2021 will be decided today Monday or Tuesday.

Last week, Education Cabinet Secretary Professor George Magoha stated that script marking was complete and that results would be released today or tomorrow.

‘‘In terms of KCPE, I think we can more or less work with Monday or Tuesday according to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s diary,’’ Prof Magoha said last week.

By last evening, all signs pointed to a release today, with inside sources confirming that all plans were in place.

“On marking of exams, it is already done and we are just doing a few things here and there to ensure that there are no gaps,” Prof Magoha said last week.

The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) board normally meets to ratify results prior to their mandatory briefing to the Head of State.

Magoha stated that the results would be made public based on President Kenyatta’s schedule.

In previous years, Education chiefs and Council staff secured appointments to meet with and brief President Kenyatta on the morning of the results’ release.

The release of the results marks the beginning of the pioneer Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) classes scheduled to transition to Grade Six.

The transition to grade six will take place in April, and the students will sit for the end-of-primary education exams in December.

When the regular school year resumes next year, they will be transferred to Junior Secondary Schools.

The council registered 1,225,507 candidates in 28,316 KCPE examination centers this year, up from 1,191,752 candidates in 28,467 centers in 2020.

This represents a 33,755 increase or 2.75 per cent.
