, Nairobi, Kenya, Mar 3 – Results for the 2015 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations were due to be released on Thursday.
The results for the more than half a million candidates will be released at Mtihani House by Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i.
During last year’s examination, nearly 50 students, teachers, university students and police officers were arrested and 30 mobile phones confiscated from candidates.
In several incidents, some candidates managed to get the examination materials days or hours before the tests were done.
525,802 sat the examinations and this represented an 8.3 percent increase from 485,547 the previous year.
The preparation period for the candidates was short as teachers went on strike for five weeks over a 50-60 per cent salary increase awarded by the Labour Court in June last year.
