The script price covers all costs associated with marking, including, but not limited to, marking scripts, putting grades on mark sheets, cross-checking, adjudication, and report writing.
The PAYE guidelines and standards are followed when taxes are applied to payments paid to KCSE examiners working under contract with KNEC.
