Education CS Ezekiel Machogu on Friday released the 2022 KCSE examination results and revealed that there was a significant performance improvement compared to 2021.

Releasing the results at Mitihani House in Nairobi, CS Machogu informed KCSE candidates to collect their results from their respective examination centers if they are located nearby.

He, at the same time, urged the 2022 KCSE exam candidates who are far away from their respective examination centres to access their results through SMS.

“Candidates can collect their results from their respective examination centres,” Machogu said.

He added, “Individual candidate results can also be accessed by sending a candidate's index number followed by the initials KCSE through a short messaging service to 20076.”

In the exam, 173,345 of the 881,416 candidates who sat the 2022 KCSE exam scored C+ and above, qualifying them to join a public university compared to 145,776 in the 2021 exam.
