KCSE 2019 Results to be Released from Monday, Biology Poorly Performed

The 2019 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education KCSE results is expected to be released from Monday the 16th of December 2019. This after the Kenya National Examinations Council KNEC examiners concluded the marking exercise by early Friday with biology being performed poorly.

Our sources confirmed the completion of marking of several papers by Wednesday. On Thursday, Chemistry Paper 3 was being winded up.

The wrapping up of the KCSE 2019 national marking exercise comes too early than expected even after it was marred by strikes.

As of writing this post, the KNEC business examiners at Machakos Girls High School who had downed their tools, but later resumed, have finished marking.

All KCSE 2019 data for all subjects is expected to be ready by the weekend.

Summary of 2019 KCSE Subject Performance Analysis (Unofficial)


This year’s KCSE candidates performed poorly in biology theory than in Practicals. Generally, Paper 3 was better performed.

Our sources indicate that there will be a very slight national improvement in biology compared to the 2018 KCSE results.

Paper one was poorly performed countrywide. However, just like biology, the candidates did better in Chemistry practicals (Paper 3).

However, most candidates failed to score on question 2 of Chemistry Paper 3 (Practicals). The question was about qualitative analysis. It was testing cations and anions and finally giving the formula of ions present in compound P.

The information we are getting from the examiners is that the 2019 KCSE Candidates performed very poorly in Paper 2.


The history paper 1 marking scheme did not favor the KCSE 2019 Candidates. The performance is poor as the majority of candidates scored 40 and below. This is because most of the examinees could not fetch a mark from section C of the paper.


This subject was well-performed, especially in Agriculture paper 1. Many candidates managed scoring 78 in paper 1.


In Kiswahili, performance in Paper 3 was disappointing.


Our sources confirmed that candidates performed averagely in English just like last year.

Most candidates scooped good marks from Question 1 in English paper 1. The informal letter they were  writing saved them alot.

However, on close-test, they fell short of the correct answers. They again managed to get some marks from the Oral skills questions from the paper.

Exact Dates of Release of 2019 KCSE Examinations Results

However, as per our whereabouts, the official results will be out from Monday the 16th of December 2019.

The official KCSE examination results will be released by Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha.

Prof Magoha is likely to beat Dr. Fred Matiangi with the KCSE 2019 results as having marked and released the results in the shortest time possible.

Magoha promised to release this year’s KCSE results before Christmas.
