KCPE examination had no leaks or cancellations

Unlike in past years, this year’s examination was not marred by leaks or cancellations. While releasing the results, Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i said during the release of last year’s KCPE examination results, he had promised Kenyans he would not apologise again over exam leaks. “I wish to categorically state there was no examination leakage in the 2016 KCPE examinations,” Dr Matiang’i said confidently. He said various security measures were put in place during the administration and management of the examination to help stamp out cheating. Matiang’i revealed all the attempted cases of examination malpractices were dealt with before they could happen, and as a result there was no cancellation of results of any candidate due to cheating.
“I wish to report that all the attempted cases of examination malpractices, totalling to only 21, were detected and dealt with appropriately before they could happen,” he said.
