KPSEA Results 2023 Release for CBC Grade 6 Exam Assessment

16/1/2023: Education CS Ezekiel Machogu has announced that schools will be able to access the KPSEA Results 2023 from Tuesday, January 17 2023.

All the 1,253, 577 learners who sat for KPSEA in 32,555 assessment centers will transit to junior secondary regardless of the outcome of the results.

The grade 7 students will continue learning in the primary school premises, however, they will don different uniforms.

Grade 7 is expected to start their 1st term on 30th January 2023.

The KPSEA Results 2023 will be used to provide feedback to KICD, Education Ministry, and TSC on areas of improvement and adjustments.

Some of the things to be taken into consideration while determining which schools will be able to host junior secondary students are the availability of facilities, the security of each school, and the student population.

Only schools with more than 45 students will be eligible to host junior secondaries. Those with fewer students will be merged with nearby schools.

The Education CS said that the government has set aside Ksh 9.6 billion in capitation – where each student will be allocated Ksh15,000 for Grade Seven in public schools.

Therefore no learner will be charged school fees except those joining boarding schools. However, the government is yet to abolish boarding schools in the country.

1,287,597 KPSEA candidates will know their assessment results in January 2023 because their results will not be used for placement in Junior Secondary Schools.

Cheating in KCPE 2018 Results

In KCPE 2018 Results, none of the papers was leaked since all leakage attempts were thwarted. Education CS Amina Mohammed said that exam cheating caused ridicule to Kenyans who sought employment regionally and internationally because their examination credentials were frowned upon. The Education Ministry spent much money on securing the examination process. The cost-benefit of extra
cost of exam administration is justifiable in comparison to the shame, ridicule and lost opportunities Kenyans faced previously.

There were only four instances of exam cancellation in KCPE 2018 due to impersonation. The candidates will be allowed to resit for the exam next year.


In KCPE 2017 results, there was no cheating or leakage, therefore no cancellation of results. But there was a total of 21 malpractices in Wajir County where there were teachers caught with cellphones in the bush trying to send answers to candidates. However, the possible answers were just ending up with the security officers because all cellphones were left safely with the security officers.

The TSC CEO Mrs Macharia noted that the exercise was 99% successful because ICT because incorporated in the marking process and the excellent partnership of various education sectors and the government.

Pregnancy cases during KCPE Exam 2018

No resitting of the exam for the pregnant girls. In October, 32 teachers who were found to have caused these pregnancies were deregistered.

As part of the remedy to this problem, TSC CEO Nancy Macharia said that private schools MUST employ teachers who have registered with TSC and have TSC numbers. This is to ensure that all teachers in all schools abide to TSC Code of Conduct.

Ranking of Schools in KCPE 2018 Results, Top Schools, results per county

There will be no ranking of schools in 2018. A law for ranking was passed in October 2016 but there was legislation required to effect that which the Education Ministry has not yet legislated upon. From next year ranking will come back

All students scoring above 400 marks will join National schools of their choice

Headteachers will be Supported, strengthened and rewarded well

This, however, appears to be the beginning of the last days of the KCPE Examinations following the overhaul of the Education System in Kenya from the moribund 8-4-4 to the new system and curriculum, 2-6-3-3-3.
