The Kenya National Examination (KNEC) has announced the dispatch of National exams across the country while warning cheating schools of intense security.

The National exams will kick off approximately one month from now and are being dispatched in unison.

20 schools, as estimated, have been identified as cheating hotspots and are hence on intense security watch.

Belio Kipsang, Basic Education Secretary cautioned that schools that will be caught leaking exams will be closed down while the exam administration will face suspension.

KNEC further blamed parents for the unending attempts to destroy the National Exam’s credibility by financing bribes through teachers.

This comes amid tribal clashes in several parts of the country causing confusion on how candidates from these areas will sit their exams.

The Examination Body’s chairman Professor George Magoha cautioned two schools in Garissa County claiming teachers were colluding with parents to cheat in the National exams.

Among the Counties suspected of planning to cheat in the exams and warned against it are schools in Meru, West Pokot and Kisii County.

“Others are pretending to sneak back the issue of prayers in schools. This is a disciplinary issue and there will be no third term activities and visitors will not be allowed,” said Belio Kipsang explaining prayers should not include school outsiders.

Professor Magoha and Dr. Belio Kipsang’ launched monitoring of exams and storage facilities in all sub-county offices in the presence of Teachers Services Commission (TSC) and the Ministry of Interior officials where they warned schools that planned to cheat in the exams of hefty consequences.

36,622 invigilators and 10,183 supervisors will administer Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams, which will afterward be marked by 23,713 examiners while 64,758 invigilators and 27,025 supervisors will be deployed to administer the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations with 5,834 examiners set to carry out the marking.
