KCSE Exams Going On Smoothly, TSC CEO.
Dr Nancy Macharia, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), stated that the ongoing Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) national exams are going well across the country, with no major issues encountered since the exams began on Monday this week.
The TSC chief stated that logistics and trained personnel are in place to ensure that the exams run smoothly.
Macharia was speaking in Kitui town when she witnessed the opening of the KCSE exam security container for Kitui Central Sub-County, as well as the dispatch of the day’s KCSE exam papers to exam centers throughout the Sub-County.
“We have so far not encountered any major challenges and where we have faced a problem, we have been able to immediately resolve it paving way for the affected candidates to sit for their exams uninterrupted,” said the CEO.
She stated that over 220,000 teachers had been effectively trained on how to handle the ongoing KCSE exams, and that they will also be deployed to oversee another KCSE exam scheduled for the end of this year.

“This year we are having two KCSE national exams and therefore the 220, 000 trained teachers have been prepared to handle the two exams, and plans are underway to train other 60, 000 teachers in June this year who will be handing Kenya Junior school exams,” the TSC executive officer said.
