Around 1,268,830 Grade 6 learners will sit for KPSEA exams and 1,230,000 candidates for KCPE exams while Form 4 for KCSE are about 880,000.
There was some confusion among teachers who were selected to oversee the KPSEA exams. The teachers were not sure if they will be paid and at what rates.
However Knec sources now say the teachers as well as other contracted professionals i.e. security personnel and drivers will be paid same rate as those who will administer KCPE exams.
T confusion arose more so because KPSEA exams will not have Composition and Insha writings which will be done by KCPE candidates. Some teachers have also been contracted for the first time.
Knec officials now say the teachers will be said same rates as those who will be in charge of the KCPE candidates.
KCPE and KPSEA exams will start and end same day. The exams will start on 28th November and end on 30th November 2022. The candidates will also have a rehearsal day on 25th November.
This week Knec also released a circular ordering only a number of people to be allowed within exam centres.
Kenya national Examinations council has authorized only the following persons to be in the examination centres during KPSEA, KCPE and KCSE exam period
The Centre Manager;
The Deputy Principal/Headteacher;- where an examination centre has more than one deputy then the centre manager shall designate one deputy to assist him/her;
Laboratory technician and science teacher only during practicals;
An authorized support staff to prepare meals for candidates who will strictly restrict their movements to the Kitchens.
