Magoha Now Explains Why They Merged KNEC Examination Centres In The Country

Education cabinet secretary George Magoha has now explained why they opted to merge KNEC Examination Centres in the country. Early on this year, during KCSE and KCPE registration the ministry opted to close all centres with less than 40 Students. Those centres were supposed to be merged to the nearest centre with the required number of students.

In a report signed, they said merging will now reduce the cost of managing exams. By the increase of students, he cost of learning exams had gone too high. This is why they decided to merge the centres. Magoha said, they were using alot of funds to pay the supervisors and centre managers. It's why they opted to merge the schools.

Magoha also said, alot of centres with very few students was giving them challenges to monitor them. With reduced number of exam centres, it will be very easy to monitor them and reduce exam malpractice. However he never explained fully how this was practical.

We wish all candidates the best. Thanks.
