The 2019 KCSE results were officially released today by the CS for Education, Prof. George Magoha. The results have shown an immense improvement compared to the previous year’s results which were released on a later date compared to this year. CS Magoha was keen to reiterate Matiang’i’s core contribution to the sector that, “I can say without fear of contradiction that there were no exam leakages this year. Our enhanced measures to fight exam malpractices in schools have exceeded high measures of success. We have sanitized our children; the issue of leakage before exams is now past tense.”

However, he also admitted that cases of impersonation and phone possession during the exam period have increased compared to last year. A total of 100 phones were confiscated before the students could be able to use them. The KCSE examination results for 1,309 students have also been cancelled after they were linked to exam malpractices.

The top spots in the national exam rankings were dominated by the usual academic giants in the country including Kapsabet Boys High School, Kenya High School and Alliance High School. Moi Kabarak and Alliance High School who have enjoyed the top spot for quite some time in the past, were this time round dethroned by yet another academic giant, Kenya High School. This wasn’t a year for the underdogs as most of the top spots have been clinched by the academic giants.
