CS Ezekiel Machogu Addresses Concerns About KCPE, And KCSE Conveyed By Parents And Teachers

Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu has addressed concerns conveyed by various stakeholders regarding the upcoming national examinations.

In a bid to allay fears over the unpredictable weather changes, the Education CS wrote a letter to his Environment counterpart, Soipan Tuya and requested an advisory during the examination period.

He noted that the information would be vital in effectively mapping the routes for the transportation of examination materials.

Machogu also assured parents and tutors that the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) learners with special needs would be catered for to ensure they are able to sit the examinations.

The special needs will be assessed through the Kenya Intermediate Level Education Assessment (Kilea). In addition, the CS affirmed that the government had extensively enforced measures to curb cheating.

He reiterated the measures employed by the Kenya National Examinations Council which banned the issuance of extra exam papers from unauthorised sources.

Further, KNEC pointed out that all students were directed to settle by 8 am regardless of when their exams began. Invigilators were also instructed to remove a candidate's desk from the exam room if he or she failed to sit a paper for whatever reason.
