“These particular results will be released long before Christmas. Why do we have to keep them when they are ready? We prepare that before they go for Christmas, the children will know the schools they will be going to so that the parents can start preparing early,” Prof Magoha said at the last day of this year’s KCPE exams. This means, the 2019 KCPE results will be available before end of November.
