KNEC breaks its silence regarding a KCSE candidate getting an A in one subject and 7 Es in other areas


A screenshot that claimed a KCSE applicant had received an A in one subject and an E in seven others has been addressed by the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC).

This happened after a screenshot that identified a candidate by the name of Kigen Brian as having uploaded the results became viral on social media.

However, KNEC quickly emphasized that the results are false in response to the screenshot.

“We want to let everyone know to ignore this phony result that is going around on social media. No one of our schools has such an index number, KNEC tweeted.

Last Friday, the 2022 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) results were announced by Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu amidst allegations that the majority of schools and pupils had cheated after posting great results.

Out of the 881,416 applicants, 443,644 (or 50.33%) were men and 437,772 (or 49.67%) were women.

Compared to the 2021 KCSE exam, 17 subjects showed a considerable improvement, up from 11 subjects.

Comparatively speaking to their female counterparts, male pupils performed fairly well.

1,146 candidates, a little increase from 1,138 in the 2021 KCSE, received an overall grade of A.

Women made up 271 of the 1,146 candidates who received grades A, while men made up 875 of them, according to CS Machogu. There were 1962 female candidates and 4,445 male candidates for the A-minus grade.

There were 6,104 female candidates for the B+ grade, compared to 9,578 male candidates. 13,520 women and 17,783 men applied for the B plain grade. There were 27,245 male students and 21,474 female students in the B- grade.

There were 33,138 female students and 36,950 male students in the C+ category.
