The KCSE and KCPE exams have traditionally been regarded with respect in Kenya.

During this period, parents and guardians have always given immense support to their children.

This is because these two exams mark a critical transition in their children's lives.

However, this year is a little bit different.

The advent of COVID-19 and the emergence of the third wave have compounded issues that parents need to tackle.

There have been massive layoffs and parents are financially strained.

They have to work extra hard to place food on the table and get the bills paid.

For this reason, the KCSE candidates have been robbed off some valuable attention.

Generally speaking, morale has been at an all-time low across the board: in the community, schools, homes and even in religious institutions.

The emergence of a video online after chemistry paper 2 of candidates venting their frustration is evidence to this.

They were seen performing a mock burial to the chemistry paper which they claimed to have been very hard.

Even some subject teachers lamented that it was on the extreme.

The students acted in total disregard to the Ministry of Health’s safety rules with regard to COVID-19.

They were neither wearing masks nor keeping social distance.

It was reported on the social media that there were reactions in different schools.

With all the jitters that surround the KCSE period, the candidates need to have all the support systems up and running.

There's danger when students panic in the middle of an exam like what was witnessed yesterday.

We pray that God will grant them confidence and let them believe that their best will allow them to sail through.

This is a critical moment as lack of confidence may result in cheating attempts.

So, let's all join hands as believers and intercede for our children, brothers and sisters.
