KNEC ISSUES A STATEMENT CONCERNING THE CHASED KNEC OFFICIALS
After learning about occurrences that caused disturbances during KCSE examinations, the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has issued a message of caution.
There were allegations of suspicious goings-on at Nyambaria High School, which was recognised for its great achievement on the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations in 2022.
In particular, the school was praised for its outstanding success in the mathematics and science categories.
Dr. David Njengere, the Chief Executive Officer of the Kenya National tests Council (KNEC), has stated that the papers that have been distributed are forgeries that were developed with the goal of fooling students, and that legitimate tests are never made available online. This is according to Dr. David Njengere’s assertion.
The claims of harassment and intimidation that were made against Charles Onyari at Nyambaria High School led to him being placed on administrative leave the previous week. Onyari is the principal of Nyambaria High School.
Dr. Njengere has expressed optimism on the current testing procedure, and he has praised the cooperation of the center’s managers and security officials.
Despite the challenges, he believes the testing will be successful. He lauded the efforts of the people in the regions where the examinations had to be rescheduled because of the severe weather.
Exam credibility and a testing atmosphere that is fair are two challenges that have been brought to light as a result of the Nyambaria event.
This is in stark contrast to the remarkable results that the institution has attained, which stands as a testament to the university’s commitment to excellence. It is an effective way to be reminded of how difficult it can be to maintain the standards of the examination.
As the second week of the KCSE examinations progresses, the KNEC continues to be vigilant in addressing any instances of misconduct, with the goals of preserving the integrity of the examinations and making certain that all students are provided with an equal opportunity to succeed.
