According to information from the Council over 7,000 examiners have been contracted to mark this year’s KCPE Insha and Composition papers. The other papers will be marked by the new optical mark recognition (OMR) marking machine acquired by Knec. These machines enabled the Council to mark and release results in record time. Knec acting Chief Executive Officer Mercy Karogo has said the coordination and processing of KCPE Insha and Composition will take place between November 1 and 20. Last year the results were released on 19th of December by the then Education Cabinet Secretary; Amb. Amina Mohammed.


“These particular results will be released long before Christmas. Why do we have to keep them when they are ready? We prepare that before they go for Christmas, the children will know the schools they will be going to so that the parents can start preparing early,” Prof Magoha said at the last day of this year’s KCPE exams. This means, the 2019 KCPE results will be available before end of November.
