SCHOOLS AFFECTED BY KCSE MISCONDUCT
The authorities have detained over twenty students and teachers from various schools on the suspicion that they cheated on the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations that will take place in 2023. The principal of the school, along with five instructors from Kuria Migori County, have been accused of cheating on the standardised tests that their children took.
In 2018, Nyambaria Boys High School was honoured for its extraordinary performance in the 2022 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examinations (KCSE). There were 383 students who achieved an A-minus or higher on those assessments, whereas the median result for the class was a B.
Some people are beginning to question the trustworthiness of the school’s previous results as a result of recent events, including the suspension of the principal of Nyambaria Boys School for alleged exam cheating. Other recent instances have also contributed to this perception. Principal Secretary of Basic Education Belio Kipsang delivered a speech on Monday in which he emphasised the need of maintaining the integrity of national examinations and emphasised the substantial investments made to that goal. He also underlined the fact that there have been made.
The team from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in Garissa that was investigating test discrepancies revealed that they had taken 29 mobile phones from a school in Dadaab during their investigation into the test abnormalities.
