Parents are warned from buying these materials for their pupils

The Government through the ministry of Education has issued a warning to parents from buying exam papers that are sold without authorization from the government.

The Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) argues that these unauthorized exam papers are targeting the grade six pupils who are preparing to transit to Junior Secondary School next year.

The KCID Chief Executive Officer Charles Ochieng Ong'ondo revealed that some fake papers of summative assessment accounting for 40 percent of the learners assessments are already in the market while the 60 percent is already recorded in the assessment of grade 4 and five in the previous years.

The Executive Officer also warned these trader are interfering with the November's exam calendar for Competency Based Curriculum CBC adding that the trader will only be accepted to sell authorized exam papers to the learners.

"Because learners are going to be assessed in Grade 6, there are people selling model papers supposedly for that grade. Do not buy them, they must be approved by KICD. We want to make this assessment as natural as possible, almost like what they do in school on a day-to-day basis," Ong’ondo revealed.

The Chief Executive Officer for KNEC David Njegere on his side has revealed that all the candidates who will undergo School Based Assessment Tests will do them within schools that their teachers will behave marked for them.
