Concerns keep on growing regarding the credibility of the national examinations being done this year. There have been several attempts of cheating and some of the culprits have been arrested.
An investigation has revealed how the cheating is done. The cartels target the morning hours which are supposedly the weak link. This is between 6.00 am and 8.00 am.
It is alleged that collusion between centre managers, invigilators and some security personnel leads to early exposure of the KCSE questions. Then, the questions are circulated online using mobile phones.
This should raise concerns because it seems the old cartels are trying to creep back into the Kenya's education system. Cheating in examinations was done away with in Kenya especially in 2016 where the examinations were fair.
Cheating is also encouraged by students who are in possession of mobile phones while in school. What do you think should be done to ensure the examinations are fair? Share your opinions down below.
