Only KCSE To Be Picked Twice Daily From Container.
Only KCSE To Be Picked Twice Daily From Container.Exams for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) will be taken twice daily from the exam containers by the center managers and exam supervisors.
The government has modified the procedure for collecting national test papers that will be given to applicants for the KCSE exam in 2023.
However, as in the past, the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) and Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) would be picked once everyday.
The KCSE exams will begin on October 23, 2023, and culminate on November 24, 2023, with Physics practicals.
1,143 containers would be utilized to keep the KPSEA, KCPE, and KCSE tests, according to KNEC CEO David Njengere.
The 576 distribution centers or containers, according to Njengere, would be utilized to store the KPSEA and KCPE exams.
“The council has acquired an additional 82 containers to make sure we facilitate this process, especially because we have 13 newly created sub-counties which did not have containers,” Njengere stated.
CS education Exam papers will now be collected twice daily instead of only once, as was customary, according to Ezekiel Machogu.
This indicates that the morning’s work will be gathered at numerous drop-off locations across the nation.
The afternoon will then see the collection of the afternoon paper.
In order to prevent cheating, Machogu stated, “this is to minimize the chances of the papers being exposed to students before they sit for it.”
Speaking during the 46th Kessha annual national conference in Mombasa’s Sheikh Zayed Hall was CS Machogu.
The Kenya Secondary School Heads Association’s Indimuli Kahi requested that the Kenya National Examination Council reassure the principals that there won’t be any leaks of test papers in 2023, and the Kenya National Examination Council complied.
“That is a question that our country must jointly address. Why do we observe copies of examination papers floating around on smartphones before the applicants take the exam? Kahi sat.
“Where is the origin of this paper? If it came from us, then we are responsible. Since we have previously been accused of doing the same,” he remarked.
Kahi claimed he visited Swaziland to observe how the nation’s exams are conducted there and was simultaneously amazed and challenged by what he witnessed.
The principals in Swaziland are handed a full week’s worth of papers, which they keep in possession, he said.
Can something like this happen in Kenya? As Kenyans, we need to have answers to these questions.
Basic Education PS Belio Kipsang, however, asserted that this is an issue of trust.
According to Kipsang, it is difficult to imitate nations like Swaziland because of the lack of trust in the nation.
We can even provide a whole month’s worth of papers if we address the trust problem, the PS claimed.
Although he admitted that this is increasingly improving, he said the lack of trust is also what leads to students going on rampages and destroying schools.
Kipsang stated that it is depressing to learn that professors and pupils must have armed security agents behind them just during national exams when it comes to evaluation.
In order to build a relationship of trust with the kids, he claimed that principals must be able to address the issues that young people face.
There used to be just four required subjects that went toward a student’s grade.
He pointed out that, for instance, English grammar and literature are combined today although they were previously separated.
According to Kahi, certain students have good grammar but struggle to analyze literature.
“However, despite having good English grammar, this student did poorly in literature, which prevented them from passing the medicine class. Are we treating this student fairly? Kahi posed.
