BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,17TH JAN 2018- 1,205 candidates who sat the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examinations have had their results cancelled by The Kenya National Examinations Council for cheating.
According to KNEC Chairman George Magoha ,nine examination centres have been affected by cancellations and will suffer consequences where there was collusion between students and the management.
“It is therefore regrettable that in total 1,205 candidates in nine of the ten centres alleged to have been involved in examination irregularities have had their examination results cancelled.”
He however says the affected students have the opportunity to register to sit for the examinations afresh this year before the portal is closed next month.
“In four schools there was evidence of massive irregularities where all candidates were found to have colluded.”
Magoha did not reveal the identities of the affected schools adding that their respective principals had received their results.
He has also declined to venture into how suspect teachers and invigilators will be dealt with saying to do so would be to usurp the powers of the Teachers Service Commission.
