KCSE

Students have now officially returned to their respective schools ahead of the National Examinations and new rules have been put into place.

1.7 million Candidates are expected to sit for KCPE and KCSE respectively. Examination booklets are expected to be dispatched in September to the respective schools to enable centre managers counter check if the materials are as supposed.

The materials will then be distributed to the education sub-county directors who will then issue them to the centre managers invigilators and supervisors.

A brief by the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) Chief Executive Officer, Mercy Karogo, stated that the exam’s question paper and other related material will be released from the KNEC offices to the various distribution centres a few days before the start.

Basic Education PS, Belio Kipsang, has ordered all the regional education to make sure that primary and secondary school heads, county and sub-county education directors and exam supervisors are present for all the briefings which are scheduled to start on 3rd September under the county commissioners chairing in the counties and deputy county commissioners in the sub-counties. The OCPD and deputy administration police commandants (DAPC) are also required to be in presence.

KCPE candidates will be 1,060,703 and will be spread across 27,161 while 664,585 candidates will be sitting for the KCSE and will spread across 10,077 centres.

Education CS Amina Mohammed reiterated that the ban regarding third term school activities will remain intact.

All exam question papers will not be stored in the staffrooms but will be kept in the exam rooms where candidates, security officers, invigilators and exam supervisors will be unlike in previous years.

KNEC has in the past years faced exam leakage following early exposure of the question papers and since emphasized that measures have been put in place to curb the menance.

“The centre managers should not give lunch or fare to monitoring officers. Officers who demand the same should be reported to KNEC through any of the channels available,” warned Karogo adding that centre managers should also not ask for monetary rewards from parents/guardians to cater for exam officials after it emerged that some school admins were working with parents to compromise the exams.
