• Magoha said all measures have been put in place to ensure results are released in good time.
Some 1,181,725 candidates sat the exam which is an increase from 1,083,456 learners who sat the 2019 exam.
Among 3,500 girls in primary school who were found to be pregnant, more than 200 candidates sat for the exam.
Last week Basic Education PS Julius Jwan said the marking of the exam had begun.
Jwan said the marking is being conducted by teachers contracted by the Kenya National Examination Council.
He said both electronic and manual marking was underway and the council has engaged the services of 7,000 examiners.
“We’ve begun marking the KCPE exam and are very impressed in the manner the examination was run. We definitely expect the same for the KCSE exam,” Jwan said.
