The scheduled reporting dates have been criticized by a group of teachers who will participate in marking the KCSE.
Teachers have already received reporting dates to mark KCSE since theory papers are being taken by KCSE students on the fourth day.
Team Leaders for the English paper 3, for instance, are required to report on December 21.
On December 31, examiners will then report.
“Normally we use 5-6 days to coordinate a marking scheme, why should we be given 11 days this time?” a teacher who sought anonymity told the Star.
The teachers now say the earliest they knew they would report for marking is December 27.
Mathematics Assistant Chief Examiners will report on December 18.
Most teachers taking part in marking have chosen to take days off before the marking day.
“My school has exempted me from taking part in the administration of exam because by the time they finish I’ll be expected to report for marking,” another teacher told the Star.
The officials contracted by KNEC to oversee the KCPE exam will be paid between Sh695 and Sh405 each day.
The officials include Centre Managers (Principals and Head Teachers), Supervisors, Invigilators, and Security Personnel.
Centre managers will take home Sh 2,000, supervisors Sh2485, invigilators Sh1615, security officers Sh 1050, and drivers Sh1040. The rates are per day.
KCSE supervisors in Nairobi and Mombasa will take home Sh695 while those in other regions get Sh630 a day.
