The Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam are expected to be released in the next four weeks according to Education CS Prof George Magoha.
In a press briefing, Magoha stated that marking would begin immediately after the last exam on which was done yesterday.
“We shall start transporting the exams anytime next week because this process is going to go on,” he said.
He added that the ministry was organizing to issue coronavirus vaccinations to all teachers who will be undertaking the marking exercise.
Magoha supervised the conclusion of the exams yesterday at the Nairobi School.
He remarked that the exercise was smooth and successful.
“We experienced several cases where examination officials attempted to open the papers to expose them to candidates before the actual examinations started. We thwarted these efforts in a few centres countrywide, some of which I released to you during my weekly briefs,” he said on Wednesday.
He passed on good wishes to the 752,891 students who sat for their exams despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
The CS restated that students who were involved in examination misconducts would be pardoned, and still get their results. This was after President Uhuru’s instructions to authorities to be lenient to the learners because COVID-19 affected the school calendar.
“Those who used mobile devices would also receive the results but have some of the marks deducted,” Magoha said.
Prof Magoha, however, affirmed that invigilators and security officers who facilitated the misconducts would be penalized.
