KCSE Results 2022: How To Check Released Results
Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu has officially released the 2022 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination results which he says mark an improved performance compared to the previous year.
Unveiling the results at the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) headquarters in Nairobi on Friday, Machogu noted that out of the 881,416 candidates who sat the 2022 KCSE exam 173,345 scored the minimum university entry grade of C+ and above compared to 145,776 in 2021.
A total of 881,416 candidates sat the exam, with the number of boys being 443,644 and girls 437,772.
A total of 1,146 students scored A (plain) in the national exam.
Grade A (plain) starts from 81 points all the way to 84 points, which is the maximum.
The students usually sit a minimum of seven subjects, with each subject attracting a maximum of 12 points (A plain).
So, when the learner scores 12 points in each of the seven subjects, then he or she will eventually have 84 points, which is the highest.
