The Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination marking has begun under tight security and would be completed in two weeks, according to Education Cabinet Secretary Prof Magoha.
This indicates that the 800,000 or more KCSE candidates’ results could be ready by the end of the month.
At June of this year, candidates will begin enrolling in universities.
The government, according to University Education and Research Principal Secretary Simon Nabukwesi, would guarantee that the tests are marked as quickly as feasible to enable university placements.
“We’ve already contacted the teachers who will be marking the examinations and asked that they report to the marking centers.” The preparations are going well, and we are encouraging the teachers to be fair to our students.Nabukwesi revealed this while supervising the distribution of examination materials in Kaptembwo, Nakuru West sub-county, on Thursday.
As soon as the KCSE results are released, the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) would begin putting candidates in institutions.
There will be no squandering of time.” In early June, candidates will be chosen to attend universities. In September, those enrolling in colleges and vocational institutes will do so.” He went on to say.
He cautioned students that while finishing secondary school signifies the beginning of a new adventure, it is not the peak of education.
Please pursue higher education in order to ensure your future and contribute more effectively to nation-building,” the PS advised.
Exam malpractice was detected in 50 incidents during the exam, which ended three weeks ago on Friday.
Prof. George Magoha of CS Education has declared that individuals who cheat on exams will face serious repercussions.
After three weeks of a demanding examination schedule, almost 800,000 candidates in 10,413 examination centers finished the examination task.
The marking of exam scripts is slated to commence on Monday.
Despite the fact that the CS maintains there was no exam leakage, there were 50 documented examples of malpractice, including early exposure and the use of cell phones without permission.
The offenders of the aforementioned malpractices, according to Magoha, will face serious penalties.
Magoha expressed gratitude to the multi-agency team that monitored the exam’s accomplishment.
