The marking exercise of the 2020 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations has been completed. Examiners spent a record time of about two weeks (14 days) to have all the papers marked.
After the marking exercise, the Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) will take a few days to moderate the candidates’ scores before they are officially released.
Most papers had been fully marked by Sunday 2nd May 2021, with just a few remaining. Examiners in Mathematics Paper 2, CRE Paper 1, Chemistry Paper 2, Biology and History were the first ones to have the KCSE 2020 examination papers fully marked.
According to sources familiar with the exercise, the KCSE 2020 results will officially be released by Friday 7th May, 2021. This is within the period earlier announced by the Education Cabinet Secretary Professor George Magoha. The CS had indicated that the results would be out by the 10th of May, 2021.
