KCSE 2023: Alarm Over Altered Results on KNEC Portal Sparks Worries

Questions have arisen about the legitimacy of the 2023 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination outcomes following noticeable irregularities noticed by parents.

Based on images provided by individuals involved, various schools experienced diverse outcomes upon accessing the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) official website.

Based on the information provided, alterations in grades across various subjects prompted stakeholders to sound the alarm.

Ndungu Nyoro, the founder of Affecto, disclosed contrasting grades achieved by Kenya High School. The school reportedly attained a B+ and a B- in Kiswahili concurrently, while securing an A- and a B in Mathematics.

In the interim, George Kaluma, the Member of Parliament for Homa Bay, advised parents to actively address the inconsistencies to prevent putting their children at a disadvantage.

“Parents do not sleep. The results are changing every minute. You blink, it goes to A, blink again, and it will be an E,” he stated.

After the disclosure, Kenyans raised inquiries about why certain outcomes were marked as provisional, urging KNEC to promptly address the differences and provide clarification.

The outcomes were contrasted with those from the 2022 General Election, during which candidates raised concerns about discrepancies in the results appearing on certain forms published by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).


“They are changing results all the time like Jose Carmago’s election results,” Kileleshwa Member of County Assembly Robert Alai trolled KNEC.

Education Secretary Ezekiel Machogu and the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) have not yet tackled the matter as requested by those who criticize them.

While announcing the 2023 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) results, Machogu acknowledged that the exams had been affected by mistakes. Students experienced issues with mark misplacement, and there were instances where Kiswahili grades were mistakenly categorized under Kenyan Sign Language.

The Science, Social Studies, and Religious Education grades were shortened inaccurately, omitting the usual plus (+) and minus (-) indicators that are typically included.

“As a CS, I have learned lessons because you can see as a ministry, everything was right. Somebody we can call an outsider was given the contract but did not conform and do to the required standard. Moving forward, when we release the KCSE examinations, we will not be able to make use of the same service provider,” Machogu stated.

Education CS Ezekiel Machogu releases KCSE 2023 at Moi Girls High School in Eldoret.
