Release of KCPE 2019 results: Messages to candidates

Kenyans from all walks of life took to social media to pass good luck messages to candidates who sat the Kenya Certificate (KCPE) of Primary Education this year.

Through the hashtag, #KCPE2019, Kenyans on Twitter took the opportunity to encourage the candidates despite the pressure that comes with the release of the results.

This came after it was observed that preparations were underway at the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) headquarters in Nairobi.

Some of the messages include

“Many are the times we were told that Education is the Key to Success but little did we know that there were other keys such as talent, generation of ideas, etc. whatever you score don’t let it limit you at any point and congratulations in advance” Posted Jayne Kuriah.

“The advice is whatever the marks you get, be proud of yourself” added Lord Kip.

“Keep calm! This exam does not define your worth as a human being,” advised Min Jays.

“No matter the marks they will get. That's not the best or the worst. It's the start of life” King Kim.

Marking of the KCPE papers was concluded on Friday, November 15, 2019, and the results are expected to be released after Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha briefs the President.

The total number of candidates who sat for the exams in October 2019 was 1,088,986.
