As CS Machogu hails improved performance 1146 candidates receive Grade A in the 2022 KCSE

Ezekiel Machogu, Cabinet Secretary for Education, has officially released the 2022 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination results, which he claims show an improvement over the previous year.

Machogu announced the results at the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) headquarters in Nairobi on Friday, noting that 173,345 of the 881,416 candidates who took the 2022 KCSE exam received a minimum university entry grade of C+ or higher, compared to 145,776 in 2021.

According to Education, 1,146 candidates received an A in 2022, up from 1,138 in 2021.

In the 2022 KCSE exam, 522,588 candidates received a D+ or higher.

The CS also noted that the number of candidates receiving an E on the 2022 KCSE exam dropped significantly, from 46,151 in 2021 to 30,822 in 2022.

“Despite an increase in candidature, the number of candidates receiving a mean grade of E in 2022 decreased significantly to 30,822 (3.49%), compared to 46,151 (5.56%) in 2021.

This leads us to the conclusion that the majority of the candidates received higher-quality grades “stated the CS.

“Most importantly, all of the remaining candidates are eligible to enroll in TVET institutions, Teacher Training Colleges, Medical 24 Training Colleges, and other tertiary learning institutions for a variety of courses,” he added.

In the 2022 KCSE exam, 190 candidates with special needs received a C+ or higher overall grade.

In terms of subject performance, the CS stated that 17 subjects improved compared to 11 in 2021, while four subjects showed no significant improvement this year.
