KCPE exams end without hitches

06 November 2014, 14:39 Adams Langat

Nairobi - A total of 889,107 standard eight candidates concluded their 2014 Kenya Certificate of Primary Examinations (KCPE) on Thursday.

The candidates sat their exams in 24 278 centers across the country and there were no irregularities reported unlike in previous years.

Over the weekend, the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) Chief Executive Officer Dr. Joseph Kivilu had dispelled fears of any irregularity saying the only problem they faced was during the transportation of the examinations materials to far areas that were experiencing insecurity.

On Friday, a police vehicle that was transporting examination materials was attacked by bandits in Kapedo area in Turkana.

Unlike the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exams that have reported several cases of irregularities, no form of cheating was reported in the KCPE exams.

The KNEC CEO had identified Nairobi, Eastleigh, Rongo, Nyamira, Garissa, Kisii and Oyugis as the areas notorious for cheating.

The candidates ended their exams with the Social Studies paper. The exams began on Tuesday with Mathematics and English papers. On Wednesday, they sat for Science and Kiswahili papers.
