Standard eight candidates who sat their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education examinations last month will know their results next week Tuesday.
The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has said it will release the results on December 31, just a day before the New Year.
“The Kenya National Examinations Council wishes to inform parents and guardians, candidates, stakeholders and the general public that the 2013 KCPE examination results will be released on Tuesday 31 December 2013,” said a notice carried in the dailies on Monday.
The results will be a perfect New Year’s gift for those who will perform well, but it will be a present to forget for those who will be at the bottom.
Education Cabinet Secretary Jacob Kaimenyi will preside over the release for the first time at Mitihani House in Nairobi. It will be the first school results under the Jubilee government.
Candidates have also been asked to be ready to get their results through mobile phones via SMS code 6062.
“The SMS will only be charged upon receipt of the examination results. Therefore, subscribers are advised to send one SMS and wait for the results before sending another one,” requested KNEC.
Over 800,000 pupils did this year’s exams in more than 24,000 examination centres.
Breaking from tradition, schools will also be able to pull results slips from the KNEC online portal two weeks after results are out. Candidates will not have to wait for the council to send them to their schools.
This year saw 844,475 candidates sit the exams — a higher number than last year’s 811,930.

While announcing the results the minister will name the best, worst and also institutions that promote holistic learning. This is aimed at encouraging school administrators to shift their focus from excelling in KCPE exams at the expense of other aspects of learning such as social, physical, spiritual growth and creativity.
The ministry also advised parents and pupils to check the results for any anomaly such as incorrect candidate’s name, school name and code as well as wrong subject grade and report to Knec within a month after the announcement.
