Primary school teachers will continue to take part in supervision and invigilation of Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE).
This comes at a time when a rumor has been circulating on social media sites that the Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) has barred primary school teachers from manning the 2023 KCSE exams.
It said that primary school teachers should stick to manning Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) exams while KCSE should be left for secondary school teachers.
However Knec has given greenlight to primary school teachers assigned 2023 KCSE invigilation role.
Knec says all teachers deployed to administer KCSE exams should take their new role, visit the CP2 portal and print the deployment letters.
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) said 223,223 have been vetted to serve as supervisors and invigilators in the 2023 national exams.
The Commission also said 37,731 teachers have been vetted to serve as examiners.
Knec will administer national examinations to 2.3 million learners who will sit this year’s KCPE and KCSE examinations.
Around 1,415,315 candidates will sit for KCPE exam, while another 903,260 will take the KCSE test.
Kenya National Examination Council Chief Executive David Njengere said preparations have been made for the candidates including 1,282,574 Grade Six learners who will sit for KPSEA.
1,143 containers will be used for 2023 KCSE, KCPE, KPSEA exams.
Njengere said the 576 distribution centres or containers will be used for storage of KPSEA and KCPE examinations.
He added that 567 containers will be used for the distribution of KCSE papers.
“The council has acquired an additional 82 containers to make sure we facilitate this process especially because we have 13 newly created sub-counties which did not have containers,” Njengere said.
Machogu urged all personnel taking part in the national examinations, to dispense their duties with utmost professionalism in line with the set guidelines.
He said the Ministry will not spare anyone who will be involved in malpractices
