The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has issued new procedures to combat cheating in the 2022 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE).
In an interview with the media on Friday, December 2, KNEC CEO David Njeng said that when the students will take the first exam, the papers for the second session will be posted in the exam room.
The KNEC chairman said the papers would be secured by students, supervisors and police officers.
He also said that the board has changed the deadline for providing exam papers.
The container will be open as usual from 6 am to 7 pm. Usually, the center has little time with the script.
He also warned students against cheating in exams and talked about how the CID monitors their behavior and the internet.
According to the report, more than 20 phones were confiscated on the first day of the nationwide test, with Garissa County being the worst hit.
The Head of Examinations informed that a special investigative team is checking the phone to find out whether the exam has been given to the students.
Before the children were used, KNEC management did a good job. “This call is being investigated by the DCI and if the student is found guilty, we will proceed as directed,” he said.
For this purpose, he said, more details will be given to check whether students bring illegal items before the exam begins.
These safeguards are part of rules previously announced by the testing body, such as banning teachers and recruiters from issuing extra test papers.
November 30 marked the start of KCSE which will continue until December 23 Friday.
