While six students were today lauded for exemplary performance in comparison to their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) results, 100 candidates who sat for this year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Schools Examinations (KCSE) will not receive their results.

While releasing the 2018 KCSE results at the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) headquarters in Nairobi, Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohammed said that results of 100 candidates were cancelled with several examination centres having theirs withheld due to malpractice.

“To step out examination cartels, in battle of against cartels the ministry arrested 6 masterminds who have been on the run for 6 years,” said CS Amina.
