A total of 26,597 teachers are racing against time to complete marking this year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination.
A majority of the teachers are expected to complete marking by Thursday, before departing from the 20 stations in Nairobi and its environs on Friday.
By Tuesday, a number of examiners were already done with the exercise and were busy compiling marks to be uploaded into the system.
The end of marking the scripts will set the stage for the release of the results next week by Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha.
Prof Magoha promised Kenyans that the results will be out before Christmas.
“Those marking the examination will use the conveyor-belt system in that the examiners cannot mark more than one question,” said the CS at the Kenya High School two weeks ago when the exams ended.
