KCSE 2022 Results Release Jitters as Examiners Report to Knec Marking Centres in Nairobi and Kiambu Counties Today
Over 42,000 KCSE 2022/2023 examiners have now settled in and will start the process of co-ordinating the marking schemes for all the papers including English paper 1,2&3, Maths Paper 1 and 2, Computer Studies Paper 1, 2&3, Biology paper 1, 2 and 3 etc.
Kindly note that each paper for instance English paper 1 is marked by a set of examiners different from the ones marking English paper 2 and paper 3 for objectivity.
The 2022/2023 KCSE examiners will take a whooping three days to harmonize the marking schemes and mark dummies that are prepared beforehand to ensure infirmity and precision before going into the live marking of KCSE 2022 C?candidates’ scripts.
Having reported to the KCSE Knec Marking Centres on Monday January 2, 2023, the live marking of scripts will commence on Thursday January 5, 2023.
Given that the examiners usually burn the midnight oil trying to beat the 14-16 days deadline for marking KCSE scripts, the marking of this year’s KCSE Examinations is likely to end on or before January 15,2023.
Following the completion of the marking exercise, Knec examiners shall clear from the marking centres and troop back home to await the official release of the 2022 KCSE Examinations before schools reopen for the new 2023 academic year.
Upon completion of their duty, 2022 KCSE examiners will receive a token in the form of advance but they will receive their full payment immediately after the results have been released.
For the past two years, KCSE examiners through their giant union KUPPET have been complaining about the delayed payment of their dues.
Now that we have got a new government in place, KCSE 2022 examiners are hoping to receive their rightful dues immediately after the release of KCSE Results in January 2023.
