Education Ministry Reveals Plan To Curb Cheating As Exam Set To Kick Off.
The Ministry of Education has stated its commitment to addressing the issue of cheating during national exams by taking measures to eliminate existing loopholes. They have implemented strategies to prevent the premature access to examination papers.
In a press briefing focused on exam readiness, Education PS Belio Kipsang openly acknowledged that one of the contributing factors to cheating has been providing teachers with early access to exam papers when they collect them in the morning. He emphasized, “Early exposure has been a concern.
Allowing teachers to collect exams at 6am and retain them has raised worries… To counter this, we will now distribute exams twice to mitigate the risk of early exposure.”
Furthermore, the PS mentioned that they have expanded the number of examination centers, which serves the dual purpose of reducing the distance traveled to deliver exam papers to schools and minimizing the likelihood of early exposure to examination content.
