KNEC’S NEW REVISED PAYMENT RATES FOR KCSE EXAMINERS (2019)
Physics Paper III examiners downed their tools a few hours after KNEC, pushed to the edge, revised payment rates per script upwards for all KCSE papers.
NEW KNEC EXAMINERS’ DEMANDS
KNEC examiners now are demanding for a basic pay of Kshs 10, 000 and a coordination fee of Kshs 500 per day up from the current Kshs 150.
The Physics Paper Three examiners who have hardly marked any script since 2.00 P.M. also want the Examination Council to revise the payment rates from Kshs 50 to 80 per script.
This comes even after KNEC attempted to avert a looming crisis by revising the payment rate for the afore-mentioned paper from Kshs 46 to Kshs 50 per script today.
LENGTH OF PAPER
According to the examiners, Physics paper three is one of the longest papers to mark.
To complete the marking of one script, an examiner needs two and a half hours to complete since every candidate has got his or her marking scheme.
This is very true since the examiner has to calculate and mark based on the candidate’s readings or values.
