Education Cabinet Secretary, Amina Mohammed, has promised to release results of the just concluded Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examinations before Christmas.

The CS wanted the results to be announced soon to allow parents and students plan for the January intake into the various Universities and colleges.

“The leadership of the country will announce the date when the results will be released, said Ms. Mohammed.

Kenya National Examination Council Chairman, George Magoha assured Kenyans that the chief examiners are already preparing for the marking process and the answer scripts are expected in Nairobi by 30 November.

“We want parents to plan in advance so that they do not use all the money for the Christmas celebrations and forget to plan for school fees of their children, said Prof Magoha.

Marking of the scripts is expected to commence on 7 December and conclude on 18 December. Examiners will undergo proficiency tests conducted by Kenya National chief examiners. Those who fail to get 90 percent in the tests will not be allowed to mark the papers.
