Marking of KCSE Test Papers Enters Crucial Second Week

The marking of the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education test papers will enter a crucial stage this week, with results expected to be announced before Christmas.


The marking, which started immediately after the examination, is to be concluded in a week to allow for analysis.

The exercise is being conducted in 19 schools, among them Mang'u, St Georges Girls, Buru Buru Girls,State House Girls and Thika.

Kenya National Examinations Council chairman George Magoha and other officials are supervising the marking.

Education Ministry officials remain guarded on the exact date the results will be released.

In 2017, the KCSE examination results were released on December 20.

"The leadership of the country (President Uhuru Kenyatta) will announce the date the results will be released," Education CS Amina Mohamed said at Nairobi School when she witnessed the sealing of the last paper recently.

Some 664,.585 candidates sat the examination, which started on November 5 and ended on November 28.

Prof Magoha says the results for those found to have been involved in examination irregularities will be cancelled.

The markers are in pools of seven under a team leader.

For every 10 scripts marked, the team leader has to go through two which are picked randomly.

The marking error is + or -2 and if an examiner goes beyond that, the script must be remarked.

Team leaders are working under assistant examiners who also go through the answer sheets.

Scripts with errors are put together and a council member checks the corrections before marks are
recorded.

The examiners are not allowed to carry away answer scripts, marking schemes and any other materials
from the marking rooms or centres.
