KCSE 2016 examination comes to an end

By Wesley Rutto

Curtains finally came down on the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination Wednesday, amid optimism that the ghost of examination cheating has finally been exorcised. 

Education Cabinet Secretary, Dr. Fred Matiang’i, was Wednesday morning at the Machakos County Education office to witness the opening of the container used to store the examination materials before later visiting Machakos School and Machakos Girls High School where the students were sitting for their Physics paper.

Basic Education Principal Secretary, Dr. Belio Kipsang, was in Mombasa to oversee the final day of the examination.

The government has carried out a month-long intense surveillance on over 500,000 candidates who have been sitting this year’s KCSE to ward off incidences of cheating that have characterized national examinations.

The marking of the examination  will commence next month with the results expected to be released in February 2017.
