The Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) 2020 results will most likely be released this week Thursday 6 May. Hakikanews has learnt that a number of examiners marking the 2020 KCSE had completed marking various examinations scripts by Monday 3, May. The subjects include English Paper 3, Chemistry, Christian Religious Studies (CRE) Paper 1, Business Studies, Physics, Geography, Agriculture, Music, Home Science, and Computer Studies.
Earlier on, examiners marking English and Biology papers had protested for what they called “little” payment by the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC). It is reported that KNEC will be paying the examiners “a smaller” percentage compared to the previous years.
Multiple sources told Hakikanews that candidates had registered slightly poor scores in Mathematics, Chemistry and Kiswahili subjects. On the other hand, Hakikanews can authoritatively report that candidates have improved performance in English subjects, Humanities, and other electives.
All candidates who wrote the exams are expected to receive their results with President Uhuru Kenyatta having pardoned candidates who were engaged in examination malpractices in the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) 2020. The president had argued that many Kenyans were adversely affected by the Covid-19 pandemics and it would have been unfair to again punish the learns who had had their learning schedule interrupted in March 2020.
Earlier on, the Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha had indicated that the KCSE 2020 results would be released before by 10 May. Additionally, all basic learning institutions are expected to resume learning for the third term of 2020 from 10 May 2021.
