The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

All is set for the na­tional ex­ams. The KCPE exam will take place on Novem­ber 1-3. Records show 952,445 can­di­dates reg­is­tered. The KCSE exam will be from Novem­ber 7 to 30. Some 577, 079 can­di­dates will sit the exam. Kenya Na­tional Ex­am­i­na­tion Coun­cil act­ing CEO Mercy Karogo yes­ter­day of­fi­cially launched the 2016 na­tional exam ad­min­is­tra­tion ex­er­cise.

It was held at Knec’s of­fices at Cale­do­nia on Den­nis Pritt Road. County direc­tors of ed­u­ca­tion, county ex­am­i­na­tion offi- cers, sub-county ex­am­i­na­tion of­fi­cers and sub-county of­fi­cers were briefed on the up­com­ing ex­ams. “We do not ex­pect can­di­dates to cheat in ex­ams. Par­ents and ev­ery­body should let the can­di­dates score their right­ful grades,” Karogo said.

Head teach­ers have been ap­pointed as exam cen­tre man­agers. “You are di­rectly ac­count­able, re­spon­si­ble and an­swer­able for any ex­am­i­na­tion mal­prac­tices that will take place in your in­sti­tu­tion,” the ap­point­ment let­ter states.
