KCSE 2023: Only 0.14 per cent of candidates score A grade

The Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination results for 2023 were released on Monday by Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu at State Lodge Eldoret.

Out of the 903,260 candidates who sat for the exam, only 1,216 scored a mean grade of A, representing 0.14 per cent of the total. Of these, 825 were male and 391 were female. Most of the A grade candidates (889) came from national schools.

Machogu said that 201,133 candidates (22.27 per cent) qualified for direct entry to university, having attained the minimum grade of C+.

He also announced that the results of 4,109 candidates were withheld due to suspected exam irregularities. He said that President William Ruto had instructed him to ensure that the cases are investigated and the culprits are punished.

Another 3,685 candidates who had registered for the exam did not show up for it. Machogu ordered a probe into their identity and whereabouts.

He also revealed that the grading system for the 2023 KCSE exam had been revised to include only two mandatory subjects: Mathematics and one language (English, Kiswahili or Kenyan Sign Language). The mean grade was computed based on these two subjects and any other five best-performed subjects by the candidate.
