‘THERE WAS NO CHEATING IN THE KCSE EXAM’ CS MACHOGU RETELLS

Published on

Cabinet secretary for education, Ezekiel Machogu retold that there was no cheating in the 2022 KCSE examinations.

The CS, speaking during the launch of grade seven textbooks at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) on Friday, termed the claims of cheating reports as mere propaganda,” From where I sit, therekansas city chiefs crocs uberlube luxury lubricant custom sublimated hockey jerseys custom maple leafs jersey decathlon bmx custom youth hockey jerseys sit top kayak air jordan 1 element durex intense vibrations ring brock purdy jersey custom dallas stars jersey brock purdy jersey decathlon bmx blundstone uomo brock bowers jersey was no cheating. This is propaganda started by people who do not have proper intentions for the country,” he said.

Machogu also insisted that the exam was credible and his ministry together will all relevant stakeholders ensured it, “I want to make it clear that when we were briefing the categories and I went to various counties with meetings and all those concerned with the administration of exams, I did that because I want us to have an exam where integrity has not been compromised. I have seen a lot of misrepresentation and a lot of people coming up with information that is not true.”

After the 2022 KCSE exam results were announced, they elicited mixed reactions after particular schools in Kisii and Nyamira County produced exemplary results. Nyambaria and Mobamba high schools, both in Nyamira, had all their 488 and 388 candidates respectively securing university admissions. In the 2021 exam, Nyambaria posted a mean score of 9.30 in the 2021 exams and in last year’s exam hit the 10.897 mark. Mobamba, on the other hand, had a mean score of 5.11 in 2021, and raised that to 9.28 in last year’s exam.

To rubbish the claims, the CS explained that the number of candidates attaining the minimum university entry point of C+ has gradually increased over the years, since before he took over the ministry. He stated that, in 2016, there were 141 As out of 571,161 candidates; representing 0.002 percent, or what he termed as “mass failure by all standards.”

In 2021, the number rose to 1,138 As out of 821,582 candidates, with 145,145 students attaining grade C+ and above. “The global benchmark for C+ and above is 30 per cent, we are at 20 per cent so we have a lot of work to do,” he added and in Nyambaria High School, he said it was because of good management, “Nyambaria got 28 As because of good management, the principal of Maranda which has been leading in national exams was transferred to that school,” he said.
