Education Cabinet Secretary Jacob Kaimenyi has said five national schools had candidates who were involved in irregularities during the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examinations.

While releasing the KCSE results on Tuesday, Mr Kaimenyi said 2,975 candidates committed exam irregularities countrywide.

He said 209 students were caught with unauthorised materials, 179 were found with mobile phones in the examination rooms while 20 impersonated candidates.

Mr Kaimenyi said the overall performance for 2014 candidates improved from those who sat for the examination in 2013

A total of 3,073 candidates scored A in 2014 compared to 2,722 who sat for KCSE in 2013.

The CS said 149, 717 candidates scored C+ and above.

How to check your 2014 KCSE results

  1. SMS your Index Number to 22252 from your mobile phone. This might take time as the system might be clogged.
  2. Go to the KNEC Website.
