Good news for Grade 7 as KNEC releases KPSEA results

David Njeng'ere, KNEC CEO. The examinations body has quietly released the KPSEA results.

The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has released the long awaited 2023 Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) results, with head teachers being the only people authorized to access it from the KNEC CBA Portal.

Schools will download and print the results which will be in certificate form and issue them to parents and the candidates, the reports giving the performance of the schools (school-specific reports) and individuals.

In 2023, a total of 1,282,574 Grade 6 learners sat their KPSEA assessment in November. Since then, they have been waiting for the results but went ahead to Grade 7 when schools reopened last week.

Education Cabinet Secretary (CS) Ezekiel Machogu, while releasing the KCSE results earlier this month, stated that the KPSEA results would be released two weeks later, urging parents and teachers to scrutinize the reports and monitor progress of their learners.

“The release of this KCSE examination will be followed by the release of the KPSEA reports for candidates who sat the Grade 6 assessment in 2023 in the next two weeks. I urge all parents, guardians and teachers to scrutinize the KPSEA reports to ensure they use the results to monitor learner progress as they transition to Grade 7,” said Machogu.

KPSEA candidates did five subjects; Mathematics, English, Kiswahili, Integrated Science and Social Studies and Creative Arts, with Integrated Science being done as one paper that combined Science and Technology, Agriculture, Home Science and Physical Health and Education.

Social Studies and Creative Arts was also one paper that combined Social Studies, Religious Studies (CRE/IRE/HRE), Art and Craft, and Music, though it lacked creative writing that is English Composition and Kiswahili Insha.

KNEC Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dr David Njeng’ere had said that KPSEA results would be issued in report form, clarifying that the results would not be used to place candidates in junior school but to monitor learner progress.

The KNEC chief added that the examination body would release three reports on KPSEA: individual, school-specific and national; the national report being shared with the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD).
