Cabinet Secretary for Education Professor George Magoha has issued a statement on the release of the 2020 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations.
Speaking at Starehe Boys Center and School in Nairobi, CS said the marking of the test was over. CS said the results will be released when they are ready. He therefore warned Kenyans to cease from the speculation when the results will be released. Below is the statement;
“The process of marking the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) Examination which started three weeks ago officially ended today.
I take this opportunity to thank all the dedicated inspectors and the dedicated team of the Department of Education and the officials of the Teachers’ Service Commission who worked tirelessly to ensure that this work, done at 35 institutions across the country, is done well.
I would also like to thank the Department of Internal Affairs and Integration, led by CS Dr Fred Matiang’i, for providing teacher safety and examination documents during marking and the Department of Technology, Innovation and Youth Affairs, led by CS Joe Mucheru for providing competent data entry staff.
We must not forget the excellent services provided by all principals who plan to mark the tests at all institutions. Our decision to increase the number of marking centers this year has enabled us to meet the requirements for social exclusion in line with Department of Health guidelines.
Over the next few days, we will move on to the next level of processing the results of the complete marking exercise in the hope that we will release the results of the KCSE Examination as soon as possible.
