KCSE 2020 Marking Kicks Off

Just hours after the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examination (KCSE) came to an end with students sitting for Computer and Home Science. The pressure has now been shifted to the markers.

Recently, Education CS George Magoha announced that the marking process was only going to take not more than two weeks and the KCSE results should be ready by the 10th of May, to haste the delayed academic calendar.

The marking process is likely going to be delayed this is due to the Ministry of Health regulations which will only allow a reduced number of markers because of the one-meter rule to reduce congestion.

Experienced teachers who have 58 years and above will not be allowed to participate in the process due to the health risks presented by the corona virus.

To add to this, marking will be a no-go zone for both lactating and pregnant women.

The Kenya National Examinations Council has ensured that all the various exam marking centres are to comply with the Ministry of Health regularities to combat the corona pandemic.

School heads were expected to facilitate the transportation of students to and from the counties that had recorded a high number of corona virus cases.

The students who were going and coming out of the locked counties were expected to show letters from their schools to be given a green light to access the Kiambu, Nairobi, and Machakos counties.

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha on Wednesaday April 21 revealed that Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) results 2020 will be out not later than May 10.
