Mombasa: Shock as KCSE 2016 results show that only 141students scored A Plain as a total of 88,929 posted grades ranging A and C+.

There were no cases of examination cheating as the exam that have been described as the most guarded in Kenya’s history.

Consequently, no candidate will have their results cancelled.

The timing is a clear break from tradition for the results which are usually released in January.

Matiang’i has been on a mission to change how national examinations in Kenya are conducted; this year’s KCSE examinations were completed earlier than usual.

Alliance Girls and Kenya High were the top achievers as 16 out of top 20 students were girls.
