Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha has disclosed when the results for the 2020 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) will be released.

In a press briefing, the CS announced that the results of the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) are likely to be released in four weeks.

He added that marking would commence immediately after the last exam on Wednesday, April 21.

“We shall start transporting the exams anytime next week because this process is going to go on,” he stated.

He also announced that students who were caught in exam irregularities would be forgiven and would get their results.

“Those who used mobile devices would also receive the results but have some of the marks deducted,” added Magoha.

To make the process go on, the Ministry of Education will collaborate with the Ministry of Health to issue Covid-19 vaccinations to all teachers who will be involved in the marking exercise, especially those who are 58 years and above.

For the purposes of the exercise, teachers marking the exams will also be allowed to move in and out of the five counties where movement restrictions had been imposed to contain Covid-19.

Invigilators, teachers and security officers who facilitated the malpractices would be punished.

“If the paper was open in Kakamega High School and sent half an hour before the time, we will look for the policeman and he will tell us where he was. We shall also look for the centre manager who will also tell us where he was,” he stated.
