Results for the 2020 KCPE exam have been officially released with the top candidate scoring 433 marks out of 500.
Announcing the results on Thursday, Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha commended the 2020 candidates, noting that they registered commendable performance considering they wrote the test during the pandemic which disrupted learning for several months.
“Many doomsayers predicted that candidates of the 2020 KCPE Examination will perform dismally. The good news, however, is that performance of candidates in the 2020 KCPE is commendable and has shown no remarkable difference from the performance of the past years,” said Magoha.
The CS noted that all the 1,179,192 candidates who sat the exam had qualified for admission to secondary school.
“As I have noted, we are today releasing results for 1,179,192 candidates who sat the examination in 28,460 centres across the country. All these
