KNEC DO NOT BELIEVE CLAIMS THAT EXAM PAPERS WERE LEAKED
David Njengere, chief executive officer of the Kenya National Examination Council (Knec), has issued a warning to students taking the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) about the availability of bogus exam papers online.
Dr. Njengere stressed that the papers circulating on social media platforms are not authentic and are intended to deceive candidates while supervising the opening of examination containers in Muranga county, which took place at the office of the Deputy County Commissioner.
Dr. Njengere confirmed that the papers being passed around were not authentic, and he urged students to ignore them in favor of what they had learned over the course of the previous four years. He stressed the need to disregard the false papers being shared on various social media platforms.
The CEO of Knec cited new standards as a key factor in administering credible national exams, reassuring stakeholders in the examination process.
With regards to protecting the examination process and preventing early disclosure, it has been found that the direction for center managers to recover exam papers from Knec containers twice a day has been beneficial.
Dr. Njengere praised the exam monitors’ conscientiousness, noting the exams’ passing rates as evidence of the effectiveness of the precautions taken.
He also said that helicopters will be sent to locations like northern Kenya and Kitui that are experiencing terrible weather conditions including heavy rains and floods so that exam papers may be delivered on time to impacted schools.
