End Of Mercy Karogo: KNEC Receives A new Chief executive officer

Centre Managers to Collect KCPE, KCSE Papers Twice a Day

the Knec chief executive Dr David Njengere, has confirmed that heads of institutions will have to visit the container twice to collect exam papers.

Njengere maintained that adjustments will be made in the transportation of KCSE papers, particularly those scheduled for the afternoon session, to prevent any early exposure of examination materials.

Instead of schools receiving both morning and afternoon papers simultaneously, they will now collect each examination separately based on the scheduled session. For instance, papers designated for the morning session will be distributed in the morning, while afternoon papers will be securely stored until they are needed.

Njengere further explained, “The changes will involve the release and transportation of only one paper to the examination centre at a time.”

This change will primarily focus on KCSE examinations, as they have been identified as the most susceptible to early exposure.

Furthermore, the government has increased the number of storage containers by 82, bringing the total to 576. Schools have also been remapped to facilitate easier access to the nearest storage container.

“Previously, schools collected examination papers from the sub-county headquarters, but some schools are located closer to nearby sub-county headquarters than the sub-county they are in, so they will be collecting the papers from the nearest containers,” explained Dr. Njengere.

Extensive changes are expected to impact the grading of the KCSE examination.

The Presidential Working Party for Education Reform recommended that the grading of KCSE should be based on two compulsory subjects in determining learners’ final scores.

These compulsory subjects will be one language (English or Kiswahili) and Mathematics. These two subjects will be considered alongside a candidate’s best five subjects in calculating the final score. Presently, Knec grades candidates based on five compulsory subjects and two other best-performing subjects. Knec uses a candidate’s scores in Mathematics, English and Kiswahili, and two sciences chosen from either Biology, Chemistry, and Physics.
