Boys outperform girls in the 2014 KCSE

class exam

Male students again emerged the better of the two genders in the 2014 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examinations. There were 2,133 male candidates that scored a mean grade of A compared to 940 female candidates. 2014 saw a general improvement in the number of students that scored C+ and above across the genders, according to the results released by KNEC.

Boys with C+ and above in 2014 jumped to 88,299 from 74,265 in 2013 while the female candidates with the same grades improved from 49,000 in 2013 to 61,418 in 2014.

Education CS Prof. Jacob Kaimenyi instructed KNEC to liaise with stakeholders and set a minimum threshold of marks below which 2015 candidates will not be graded.

149,717 students attained C-plus and above (minimum university qualification), a 30.8 percent increase from last year. 59 percent of them were male while 41 percent were female.

KNEC revealed there were 2,975 cases of cheating, but that the incidences had reduced from 3,812 in 2013. Taita Taveta and Lamu were the only counties that did not have cases of cheating.
