KCPE 2016 RESULTS IMPORTANT STATISTICS
Top KCPE candidate scored 436 marks, says Dr Matiang’i

 

The highest scorer in the 2016 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) candidate got 436 marks, compared to 449 marks scored by top candidate last year, owing to tough rules set by the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC).

Education Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i said the tight rules this year saw top mark drop, adding that even those who scored above 400 marks dropped to about 5,143 compared to over 7,000 last year.

In the 2016 KCPE results, 206,141 candidates scored between 301 to 400 marks – representing 21.75 per cent while 501,552 got between 201-300 marks – representing 52.66 per cent.

Over 221,438 candidates got between 101 and 200 marks – representing 23.25 per cent while 6,747 representing 0.71 per cent scored 100 marks and below.

Speaking during the release of KCPE results at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) today, the CS said special needs students also performed well with the top candidate scoring 421 marks.

This year saw 942,900 candidates sit for KCPE. Dr Matiang’i said 2016 had 1,950 special needs candidates. “We made special contingent for special needs candidates. Some will be admitted in the national school and performance was high,” he observed.

He however said they will not rank the schools. Dr Matiangi noted that he was individually grateful and thankful to God and the President for the good work. He said all candidates finished exams without any problem. He thanked fellow CSs who made the exams successful.

Speaking at the event, he said last year, some candidates missed results due to malpractice which has now been eliminated. He said the exam ‘dream team’ was working together and focusing on the task ahead. “We can raise our children in a responsible manner. We don’t have to teach our children that you can steal at an early age,” he said.

Observing that the examination demonstrates that partnership and cooperation works, the CS said they sometimes had to wake up as eraly as 4:00am to open exam collection centres. “We have seen interesting cooperation. Even being at the container at 4:00 am and County Education officers and security were present.

He said the strategy depends on the delivery by the head teachers and principals, adding that as Kenya moves forward in implementing key reforms next year, the focus will be on head teachers since they are central to the delivery and objectives of Government.

The event was attended by senior ministry officials and cabinet secretaries for ICT Mr Joe Mucheru and his Interior and National Co-ordination Counterpart Joseph Nkaissery.
