The 2022 KCSE results have been released today at the Mtihani house in Nairobi by Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu.
Of the 881,416 students that sat for the exam, 1,146 students got Plain As. 522,588 students scored D+ and above, which translates to 59.14%. This percentage is higher than last year’s where 53.29% scored above D+.
The student with the highest points was Jeriel Ndenda Obura, from Mangu High School who had a plain A of 84 points. Also, among the students in the top ten, only three were girls, while seven were boys.

The code for checking the results is out and working. By sending an index by SMS to 20076, one will see the performance of the candidate they wish to see. Sending an SMS and receiving the details of the results will cost 20 shillings.
Post COVID disruption
The release of the 2022 KCSE results will be the first time KCSE results get to be announced early in the year after the COVID disruption, which had disoriented the school program. Like in 2022, the ministry of education released the 2021 KCSE results in April.
The release of the 2022 KCSE results will be before the reopening of schools for the first term session. This year’s reopening of schools will also be the first time Kenyan schools get back to regular calendars after the COVID disruption.
Returning to the regular school calendar would relieve many parents of the pressure to pay school fees quickly. The normal school calendar gives enough time to plan one’s finances. The parents would get enough time to plan their finances to cater to their children’s needs, unlike in the disrupted period when children closed for a few days, which pressured parents to meet their financial obligations.
General Results Analysis
The details of the candidate’s and individual school’s performance will be given in detail throughout the day.
