KNEC Statement On Nyambaria Boys Incident. A warning statement has been released by the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) in response to reports of disruptive situations that occurred during the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams.
Candidates from Nyambaria High School, which is well-known for its exceptional 2022 KCSE performance, apparently got in trouble with test officials, and phony exam papers started making the rounds on social media.
Genuine exam papers are not published on social media platforms, as KNEC CEO Dr. David Njengere made clear when he confirmed that the distributed papers are false and intended to deceive students.
KNEC Statement On Nyambaria Boys Incident
Charles Onyari, the principal of Nyambaria High School, was suspended last week as a result of the escalating situation around claims of harassment and intimidation.
Dr. Njengere praised the collaboration of center managers and security officials and expressed confidence in the ongoing assessment process despite the problems.
He acknowledged their efforts to uphold the integrity of the exam, especially in regions impacted by recent severe rains.
When viewed in light of the school’s outstanding achievements, the Nyambaria event brings to light the difficulties in maintaining the validity of exams and an equitable testing environment. It acts as a reminder of how difficult it is to maintain exam standards.
With the goal of maintaining the integrity of the tests and guaranteeing fairness for every applicant, KNEC is keeping a close eye out for any suspected malpractices as the KCSE exams move into their second week.
