The Kenya
National Examination council cancelled the results of 3,427 candidates in the
2018 KCSE exams.

The exam body termed exam regularities as the main reason for the cancellation as they urged the said candidates to retake the exams.

There was
relief for 1,275 KCSE candidates from nine centers who had been suspected of
exam malpractice but were cleared by the council.

“The
council has made the painful but necessary decision to cancel results of these
candidates, However, in order to tamper justice with mercy, the council decided
that these candidates should be encouraged to register for these year’s exams
before close of registration on February 15.” said Professor George Magoha, the
Kenya National Examinations Council Board chairman.

Magoha
attributed the exam irregularities to negligence in learning institution.

“These
malpractices took place due to negligence by omission or commission, not of the
children, but adults like us in the form of center managers, supervisors,
invigilators and personnel on the ground,” he said
