The Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination results will be released on Monday, the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has announced.
Education minister Mutula Kilonzo will release the results at KNEC's offices, Mitihani House off Caledonia Road in Nairobi at 9.30am.
“After the release, candidates are advised to collect their exam results from their respective centres where they registered,” KNEC secretary Paul Wasanga said on Tuesday.
“Candidates who have their results withheld will receive a letter through their headteachers explaining why the results have been withheld,” Mr Wasanga said.
Results of some 811, 930 candidates will be released.
Upon receipt of the results, candidates have 30 days to scrutinise them and lodge complaints with KNEC including all forms of discrepancies in the details of the results slips.
These details include the candidates name, index number and gender, school name, code and the grades obtained in each of the subjects.
Mr Wasanga said that candidates involved in exam irregularities will have their results cancelled and informed in writing through their head teachers.
“The head teachers are expected to inform candidates whose results have been cancelled and parents/guardians are advised to get information from the head teachers instead of travelling all the way to KNEC,” he added.
Cancelled results are never remarked.
