KNEC Confirms KCSE Papers Circulating Online Are Fake. According to KNEC CEO David Njeng’ere, the government is collaborating with the ICT department to put an end to incidents involving individuals who have been sharing exam papers on social media, particularly Telegram.
Njeng’ere asserts that no authentic exam paper is available for online distribution.
“What they actually do is work together, find a picture of the paper being completed, and then attempt to post it on social media. I can tell you with complete certainty that there isn’t a single authentic document that can spread over social media networks.
He claimed that the new regulations implemented during the KCSE exam administration this year have assisted in reducing anomalies.
According to Njeng’ere, the double gathering of morning and afternoon newspapers has reduced the amount of early exposure to second session papers.
The morning paper is collected at 7 am and administered between 8 am and 10 am, and the scripts are returned to the container.
The center managers then collect the second session papers at 12.30 pm and it is administered from 2 pm.
There have only been 46 cases of candidates being involved in various cases of malpractices in the country out of a candidature of 903,260 which he said is a negligible number.
The CEO lauded secondary school teachers for responding to the new rules and monitoring officers for being very vigilant.
Every case of attempted malpractice or participation in any behavior that may lead to malpractice has been reported and necessary action taken, he noted.
During the processing and marking of exams, Njeng’ere said markers will be vigilant to pick any behavior that will demonstrate that the attempts contributed to anything.
“The rules are clear. These are national examinations meaning rules apply the same to all candidates,” he said.
