KNEC Warns KCSE Candidates, Teachers Against Buying Fake KCSE Papers
Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has cautioned candidates sitting for their KCSE examinations to be cautious of fake exam papers being circulated on various social media platforms.
KNEC Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dr David Njengere has confirmed that the examination papers being circulated on social media platforms are not genuine and are only meant to deceive those sitting for KCSE.
He said the new guidelines that were put in place are working well, saying this year KNEC is determined to conduct credible results. “Students have studied for the last four years, so I urge them to ignore those papers being circulated in various social media channels.
The papers are fake. “The new directive of picking exam papers from containers twice a day is working very smoothly and is helping to prevent early exposure of examination papers. Those monitoring the exams are also doing a great job,” said Njengere when he oversaw the distribution of examination papers from a container in Murang’a East Sub County, Monday.
He revealed that so far, 46 cases of malpractice have been reported in the country, saying the number has no significance to taint the integrity of the exam.
“46 students from various parts of the country have been caught as they attempted to interfere with the exams. Some of the cases include having phones in examination centres or any other unauthorised materials. We thank officers and teachers manning the exams as they have quelled any attempt to leak the exams,” added the CEO.
