KNEC Elucidates KCSE 2022 Exam Leakage Uproar
KNEC Elucidates KCSE 2022 Exam Leakage Uproar. According to social media claims, the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) results for 2022 were tainted by test fraud, according to a senior official of the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC).
The chief executive officer of KNEC, David Njengere, claimed that the reports were false and deceptive. He denied assertions that 800 A plains had been generated in Kisii and Nyamira counties. According to Njengere, the two counties actually only have 81 A plains.
Once the results were announced on Saturday, Njengere blamed the spread of misleading information on social media for the disinformation. He added that prior footage had been altered by internet users to support a story of cheating.
Rumours was also widely spread about a student who scored Es in 7 subjects but only to scored A Plain in english. KNEC shunned those information that were fake rumors just gaining mileage through social media.
The timing of Njengere’s remarks coincides with increased scrutiny of Kenya’s exam system, which has been plagued by claims of malpractice and cheating. KNEC has come under fire for allegedly not taking the necessary precautions to stop cheating, which has raised concerns about the validity of the KCSE findings.
KNEC, on the other hand, has stated that it has put strong procedures in place to prevent cheating, such as the use of biometric data and security cameras in test rooms. Anyone found guilty of cheating on exams face prosecution, according to the council.
