The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) is expected to release the 2018 Kenya Certificate for Secondary Education (KCSE) results any time from now.
However, its not clear whether the ministry of education will go back to the traditional ranking of schools according to the amendment bill 2016.
About 600,000 candidates, who sat for the 2018 KCSE exams, are expecting to know their fate.
Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohammed said the ministry is yet to formulate rules that will operationalise the ranking of schools and candidates in accordance to the 2016 KNEC amendment law.
Ranking was banned in 2014 over claims that the practice created unnecessary competition among schools, resulting in examination irregularities.
The Kenya National Examinations Council (Amendment) Bill became law in 2016, making it mandatory for the national examiner to rank schools based on KCPE and KCSE examinations performance.
However, national examination results are still released without the merit list as envisaged by the law.
