Ezekiel Machogu, the cabinet secretary for education, has addressed worries expressed by several stakeholders about the approaching national exams. The Education CS requested an advise throughout the exam time in a letter to his Environment colleague, Soipan Tuya, in an effort to ease concerns regarding the unexpected weather changes.
Please send us a weather advisory for the specified time period so that we can properly and thoroughly plan for this activity. Part of the letter stated, "This will allow us to anticipate weather changes and equip our team with appropriate information to efficiently deliver the assessment.
In order to ensure that students with special needs taking the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) exams can do so, Machogu also gave parents and tutors assurances. The CS also confirmed that numerous anti-cheating policies were being vigorously enforced by the government.
He reaffirmed the safeguards put in place by the Kenya National Examinations Council, which forbade the distribution of supplementary exam papers from unapproved sources. Furthermore, KNEC emphasized that regardless of when their exams started, all students were required to be seated by 8 am.
Additionally, invigilators were told to take a candidate's desk out of the exam room if they were unable to sit for a paper for whatever reason.
Remember to share your opinions on the coming examinations.
