The KCSE Examiners who marked the 2020 KCSE exams have finally been paid following a long wait since the marking exercise ended.
The Kenya National Examination Council has rolled out their pay womething that will put a smile on their face.
The marking exercise took place in the month of April. This means that the examiners have waited for close to four months for them to be paid something that saw many examiners vow not to engage in marking again.
As at now many examiners on various whatsApp platforms have confirmed that they have already received their pay today via M-Pesa.
From those who were marking the English paper III have a reason to smile as they are paid the highest amount of sh. 75 per script and non of them marks less than 300 scripts.
Another set of examiners who have also pocketed more money are those marking Biology Paper II where they mark a script at a cost of sh. 50 on the lower side.
Other papers like Chemistry pp1, an examiner will part with about sh. 51, Math sh. 57 for the two papers and those in English pp1 earn sh. 58 per script.
