Plans to ensure the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examination is marked as stipulated are underway despite challenges posted by Coronavirus which has hit the country so hard. Dr Mercy Karogo, the CEO of Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has just released the list of KCSE 2020/2021 examiners and assessors per county and reporting dates.
In a memo addressed to all Deputy County Commissioners DCCs, Mercy Karogo instructs the commissioners to collaborate with the County Directors of Education to organise the cheapest means of transport within six days that will ensure all examiners reach marking centres in time. However, the examiners and assessors expected to pay for the fairs from their pockets.
“The Kenya National Examinations Council KNEC will carry out a confidential National exercise that will involve Knec examiners from your county between 4th April and 10th May 2021 in institutions in Nairobi and its environs." Reads a memo from Knec Chief Executive Officer Dr. Mercy Karogo.
