KCSE Results 2018 Cheating cases in exams
This year there was no leakage of exams as it was in 2016 and 2017. However there were few incidences of early exposure of the exams. The culprits have been dealt with in accordance with the law.
The results of 100 candidates were also cancelled due to exam malpractices. Also the results of some centers were withheld pending further investigations.
101 mobile phones were confiscated during the exams from the candidates and four candidates were deregistered for impersonation.
Education CS Amina Mohammed said that 6 masterminds of exams cheating and examination fraud cartels who were on the run for the lat six years have now been arrested and charged.
TSC CEO Nancy Macharia revealed that during the KCSE Exams 2018, there were 62 cases of non conformity and non compliance on the part of some teachers who are now under investigation. 5 of these teachers have already been interdicted and punished.
KCSE Performance 2017
This year in 2017 142 students attained an A an improvement by one student. In 2016 141 students scored an A . Also 2714 candidates scored A- (Minus) a decline from 2016’s 4,645 candidates.
CS Matiang’i also indicated that the number of students who attained the grades to join university declined from the 88,929 candidates in 2016 who qualified to join the Kenyan universities.
Mathematics and other 13 subjects performance improved in 2017.
Girls schools performed better than boys. Pangani Girls High School was the most improved school. Other Schools recognised were Maranda High School, Alliance High School and Kenya High Schools.
According to TSC CEO Nancy Macharia, 40 teachers participated in exam irregularities, and will be dealt with according to the law.
Any private school that hires a deregistered teacher will be automatically deregistered.
According to CS Matiang’i, the results followed the normal performance curve.
According to KNEC Chairman Prof. George Magoha and CS Matiang’i, early exam exposure before the exam time became a major cause of this year’s exam irregularities.
The ministry of Education has this year withheld the results of ten schools pending investigations and the outcome of the investigations will be out by the 18th January, 2018. One of the school is St Theresa Girls Senior School, Naivasha that was deregistered in November, 2017 over exam irregularities.
In another school in a school in Rift Valley fishy activities were observed in that school during the KCSE Exams whereby almost all senior Government officials in the Ministry of Education and Interior visited it. The problems there were so strange that the public school principal hid phones that were confiscated in the exam room in a water bucket.
These exams that were sat this year have been marked as one of the most credible since the tight rules and security that were put in place by the Education CS Fred Matiang’i and the KNEC Chair former University of Nairobi Vice-Chancellor Prof George Magoha.
