The results for this year’s Kenys Certificate of Secondary Education, KCSE, exam will be out before Christmas. This is according to Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha.
While speaking at Kapisisiywa Secondary School in Nandi, last week, the CS said the Ministry together with the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) have put in place measures to ensure the results are released in good time. “What I assured the president and the Public earlier on was that we shall go to Christmas after we have known how the children performed,” Prof Magoha said.
Magoha said early release of the examination results will enable parents and guardians to plan on how to manage their finances well and not to spend everything on merry making during this festive season.
The CS presented a cheque of Sh100 million to the school. The cheque was a donation from the President towards the Construction of a Library and Offices; being an appreciation to the 2019 Best Athlete Eliud Kipchoge.
