Just hours after the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams ended students sitting in Computer and Home Science. Pressure is now transferred to markers
Recently, the Department of Education George Magoha announced that the marking process would take more than two weeks and the KCSE results should be ready by May 10, to speed up the delayed education calendar.
The marking process may be delayed due to Department of Health regulations that will only allow for a reduced number of markers due to the one-meter rule.
Experienced teachers aged 58 and over will not be allowed to participate in this process due to the health risks posed by the corona virus.
In addition, marking will be an area of concern for pregnant and lactating mothers
Kenya’s National Examinations Council has confirmed that all various test marking centers must comply with the Department of Health’s general guidelines to combat the corona epidemic.
School principals were expected to promote the relocation of students to districts and districts that had recorded a high number of cases of corona virus.
Students coming out of the closed districts were expected to show letters from their schools to be given a green light so that they could enter the districts of Kiambu, Nairobi, and Machakos.
Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha on Wednesday, April 21 revealed that the results of Kenya’s Second Education Certificate (KCSE) 2020 will be released before May 10.
