    KNEC issues exam guidelines to teachers and KCPE/KCSE students.

    Published on

    In preparation for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams, as well as the first Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA), the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) published ground rules to help teachers and candidates.

    Teachers were told by KNEC to caution students about the dangers of using fraudulent test materials.

    None of the images that are being circulated are actual test papers. I dare anybody to deliver an examination paper before the test date.

    KNEC issued a warning.

    Teachers were also entrusted with coming up with methods to reduce cheating on exams.

    At least 200 candidates will be under the control of one supervisor. The invigilators who will be hired will be in charge of overseeing 20 candidates.

    Teachers from other schools will serve as supervisors and investigators, but the center’s management will be made up of head teachers.

    KNEC asserts that only certified educators will participate in the activity.

    More than 250,000 teachers from the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) would be sent to assist KNEC to carry out its objective. The head of the TSC, Nancy Macharia, has given the order for the teachers who would be in charge of the exercise to be vetted by the sub-county executive directors.

    Multiple-choice questions will be included on both the KCPE and KPSEA. The examination papers themselves will have distinctive features and will not be revealed until the test has begun.

    The Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) will be administered for the first time to students in grade 6 in conjunction with the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams for students in standard 8.

    The practice tests for the KCPE and KPSEA will be held on Friday, November 25, and the actual exams will be held from Monday, November 28, to Wednesday, November 30, respectively.

    A month later, on Friday, December 2nd, the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams will begin and run until Friday, December 23rd.

    It is the first time national exams have been given since President William Ruto took office, and they will be overseen by Ezekiel Machogu, the new Education Cabinet Secretary.
