This is one of the Ministry of Education’s policies that may help curb cases of cheating in the national exams hence enabling easier monitoring.
Dr Belio Kipsang was speaking at Nakuru Boys High School after inspecting the progress of Biology paper three practical.
This suggestion was arrived at following the skyrocketing numbers of private candidates caught cheating in the KCSE national examinations this year.
He further said that cheating cases have tremendously reduced this year and the few implicated candidates are those taking the examinations from private centres.
These candidates seem to take advantage of their centres to go against KNEC KCSE rules and regulations.
Last week, 35 mobile phones were confiscated at a private examination centre in Nairobi and 26 people arrested.
