The Ministry of Education under Cabinet Secretary George Magoha has exposed schools registering ghost Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) candidates.
Speaking during a meeting with private schools directors and managers on Friday, October 22, Nairobi County Regional Director of Education, Jared Obiero, stated that private institutions comprise the majority of schools roped into the syndicate.
KCPE, on the other hand, is slated to kick off on March 7, 2022 with a Mathematics paper and end March 9 with the Social Studies paper.
In a statement shared on Wednesday, September 15, KNEC directed all students and their teachers to confirm the candidates details via text messages.
The students can confirm their credentials by sending an SMS of the index number (Single Space)(Exam) to code 20076.
The exercise is expected to verify all students supposed to sit for the national examinations and include them in the budget.
