4.0 Ensure adherence to the following during nomination:
4.1 For every 200 candidates, deploy one supervisor; no supervisor should be deployed for hosted and KPSEA centres except for centres with KPSEA candidates only;
4.2 For every 20 candidates, deploy one invigilator. You are required to deploy invigilators to hosted and KPSEA centres based on the number of candidates in the examination centre;
4.3 Both hosted and hosting centres must have their own Centre managers. However, hosting Centre Manager will be expected to collect and return examination materials from the container.
5.0 Take note that the number of supervisors and invigilators should be adhered to especially during optional papers. The centre managers should ensure only the required number of supervisors and invigilators report each day of examinations and online attendance taken on daily basis. This will ensure teachers will not be idling in examination centres with no role to play.
