How to easily download KCSE 2023 exam results using new link

The 2023 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) candidates can now access their results on the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) portal. 

A total of 899, 453 candidates sat the 2023 KCSE exams, of whom 450,554 were male, while 448,899 were female, representing 50.09 per cent and 49.9 per cent of the total candidature respectively.

How candidates can access KCSE 2023 results

Candidates are required to log in to the KNEC portal or website through 

They will then be required to enter their respective index numbers and names as per the 2023 registration date. 

Once confirmed that all details are correct, they click submit to access the results. 

“The results will be available immediately after release by Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu,” KNEC noted. 

The results portal however experienced some downtime shortly after it was announced, with some people unable to access the platform.

CS Machogu has assured candidates that the ministry has ensured the system is working. “This time we have worked with engineers and experts and we are sure that the website is working, and Kenyans will not have inconveniences we had last time,” he said. 

The council will also dispatch results to sub county education officers for distribution to exam centres. 

In the past years, the ministry had been using an SMS platform supported by mobile service providers to convey the results. 

However, Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang last year announced the abolishment of the SMS system. 

While appearing before the National Assembly Education Committee Basic Education Belio said that they would put in place a more effective system that will be free of charge.

‘‘We are building systems which will be dependent on our resources that will be available to our candidates free of charge,’’ he said.

The examinations commenced on October 23 and concluded on November 24.

A new grading system has been implemented in the 2023 KCSE.

In the new grading system, only two mandatory subjects, Mathematics and one language (English, Kiswahili, or Kenyan Sign Language), will be used to compute the mean grade.

Additionally, examiners will be required to pick five of the best-performed subjects from a candidate, doing away with the previous grading system. 

Previously the 8-4-4 system had five mandatory subjects across three cluster groups – Mathematics, English, Kiswahili, two sciences and one humanity used to calculate the mean grade.

The previous system was perceived to disadvantage some learners whose best-performing subject was not considered if not within the clusters, as has been the case since the inception of the 8-4-4 education system.
