En­sure no ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties this time round, Kakamega school heads tell exam council

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Western -

School heads in Kakamega have asked the ex­ams council to en­sure there are no ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties this year. Kenya Sec­ondary School Heads’ Association county chair­man God­frey Owori said they will force Knec to can­cel the KCSE exam re­sults in case of any ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties. “It’s not a must that ex­ams are done this year, even when sys­tems are in­ef­fec­tive,” he said. Owori said ex­ams are sup­posed to help learn­ers iden­tify univer­sity cour­ses. “When there are ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties, hard-work­ing learn­ers who can­not cheat in ex­ams are con­sid­ered fail­ures, while those who were drilled for the ex­ams are praised and given qual­ity cour­ses at the univer­sity. Teach­ers from schools which don’t cheat in ex­ams are chased away and some schools closed by communities,” he said. Owori spoke on Fri­day at his of­fice at St Peter’s Mu­mias Boys’ High School.
