KNEC Warns School Heads Against Registering Ghost Candidates

Heads Instructed to Compile List of 2023 KCPE, KPSEA and KCSE Invigilators

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has started to compile list of teachers who will administer the 2023 national exams.

Through the Curriculum Support Officers (CSO), the Commission is now collecting data of teachers who will be assigned the exam administration responsibility.

Schools heads are required to fill and submit an excel template where teachers details are to be submitted.

Among the details required from teachers are; Name, Designation, TSC number, Job group.ID number, Current school, Mobile number, KRA pin, KPSEA, KCPE and KCSE enrollment.

In the 2022 exams and assessments a total of 28,408 teachers were used as centre managers, 28,727 as supervisors,74,990 as invigilators and 5,647 as examiners.

Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) said plans are complete to administer national examinations to 2.3 million learners who will sit this year’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE)and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations.

Around 1,415,315 candidates will sit for KCPE exam, while another 903,260 will take the KCSE test.

Knec Chief Executive David Njengere also said preparations have been made for Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) for 1,282,574 Grade Six learners.

Dr Njengere said that candidate registration has been completed, the examination papers have been set and will be administered according to the timetable.

He made these remarks during the opening of the 39th Association for Educational Assessment in Africa Conference held at Safari Park Hotel in Nairobi.

Knec has also unveiled fresh security measures to curb cheating during this year’s national examination.

The examination officials will no longer pick all the day’s examination papers in the morning.

Instead, centre managers, who are also the school heads, will only pick the morning papers.

Knec said it has procured additional containers to bring examinations storage facilities to schools.

This will cut down on the time taken to pick and drop the examination papers under the new arrangement.

After candidates complete the morning paper, the examination officials will return them to the container as they pick the afternoon papers.

Insiders at the Ministry of Education said that the move is aimed at preventing early exposure to afternoon papers.

However, Knec is also on the spot for severe delay of teachers’ payment after the exams have been administered and results released to the public.

Teachers’ unions have been threatening to rally teachers to boycott this year’s exam invigilation and supervision role if this issue of payment is not addressed.


Create your CP2 account as early as now to avoid last minute rush. This is where your deployment letter for KNEC invigilation or supervision is uploaded. Those who already have accounts need not create again.

Application for invigilation is done through your school head. You can present yourself in person to the CSo and request for a chance.
