The results of the 2022 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations were released on Wednesday, December 21, 2022 by Education CS Ezekiel Machogu.
Over 1,244,188 pupils sat for the national examinations, which began on November 18, with the best student obtaining 431 marks.
In contrast to prior years, Education CS Machogu did not read the top ten KCPE candidates' names. Nevertheless, independent media reports indicate that Otieno Lewis Omondi of St. Peter’s Mumias Primary and Kwaro Makokha Robinson of Christ The King Academy Bungoma emerged top in KCPE nationally with 431 marks each.
As the Ministry of Education phased down the 8-4-4 curriculum, the 2022 KCPE exam is the second-last of the exams.

KNEC chief executive David Njeng'ere revealed that the results of the first ever Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) for Grade Six students would be released January 16, 2023.
"The learners will get individual reports and all these are going to be uploaded on the school portal on January 16, 2023," he said.
The results of this assessment, he reiterated, would not be used to place learners in junior secondary schools following the decision to domicile junior secondary schools in existing primary schools. Instead, the council stated, the assessment was only meant to monitor learner progress.
"Each school will receive specific reports that will delineate the areas that learners had challenges so that they can continue in the journey of improvement," he added.
A total of 1,287,597 Grade Six pupils sat for the KPSEA in 2022.
