KNEC assures Kenyans of credible exam results

03 December 2013, 10:28

Nairobi - Kenya National Examination Council KNEC has assured the public that the results of the just-ended examinations will be credible despite the problems surrounding them.

The final examinations were written amid protests by examiners.

Marking was completed yesterday with examiners set to mark the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examinations starting to report to the different marking centers countrywide.

The Chief Executive Officer of the Kenya National Examination Council, Paul Wasanga, assured candidates who sat for the national examinations this year that they would get their results at the appropriate time.

“I do not think teachers would come and say they will mark under protest. The marking process is such that when you mark there is what we call the senior examiners. They look at your script, the one that has been marked. They sample to check whether the marking is okay. After that there is the chief examiner who also samples to check. So the process is very clear to ensure objectivity,” said Wasanga.

Earlier on, the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) had threatened to boycott the marking process by pulling out its members citing poor payments over examination marking.

The threats by KUPPET had created fears that the boycott would have delayed the marking process which would consequently delay the release of exams.

The Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examinations are usually released towards the end of the month of December each year with the results for the primary school tests coming towards the end of February each year.
