Here is a step-by-step guide on how to check your 2023 KCSE results. The Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) is a significant examination for high school students in Kenya. With the advancement of technology, checking KCSE results online has become a convenient and efficient method.

In this article, we will provide you with a comprehensive step-by-step guide on how to check the 2023 KCSE results online.

How To Check Your 2023 KCSE Results Online

  1. Individual 2023 KCSE candidates’ examination results can be accessed online through a link on the KNEC website or directly through the URL: 
  2. You will be required to enter the Candidates’ index number and the Name(s) as per the registration data for the 2023 KCSE examination. 
  3. If the details provided are correct, the 2023 KCSE results will be displayed on the screen.

NOTE: Official result slips will be accessible through examination centres where the candidates sat for their exams.

The results were available immediately after they were released by the Cabinet Secretary for Education of the Republic of Kenya, Hon. Ezekiel Machogu, EGH.

In the past years, the ministry has been using an SMS platform supported by mobile service providers to convey the results. However, Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang last year announced the abolishment of the SMS system.

A new grading system has been introduced in the 2023 KCSE. Under the new system, only two mandatory subjects, Mathematics and one language (English, Kiswahili or Kenyan Sign Language), will be used to calculate the mean grade.

In addition, examiners will now choose the five best-performed subjects from a candidate instead of using the previous grading system that required the selection of five mandatory subjects across three cluster groups—Mathematics, English, Kiswahili, two sciences and one humanity—to calculate the mean grade.

This new grading system is a departure from the previous one that was considered to disadvantage some learners whose best-performing subjects were not considered if not within the clusters, as has been the case since the inception of the 8-4-4 education system.
