Why KCSE Students May Do Badly – MP Robert Mbui’s Concerns

Kathiani Member of Parliament Robert Mbui has expressed concerns about the ongoing 2023 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations, citing a myriad of challenges faced by the candidates. Mbui believes that this year’s cohort may encounter unprecedented obstacles during their final examinations, primarily due to adverse weather conditions, among other issues.

Speaking during an interview on Citizen TV’s Daybreak on Monday, the legislator highlighted some of the challenges observed during the recently concluded Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations. In certain regions, local residents had to transport examination officers across swollen rivers to ensure the smooth administration of exams.

Mbui pointed out that for the first time in Kenya, students are likely to face major challenges during the upcoming KCSE exams. He raised concerns in Parliament regarding the new plan that requires exam center managers to collect papers twice a day.

This plan, coupled with the current heavy rainfall and challenging terrain, poses logistical challenges, especially for centers located far from the examination institutions.

Moreover, he stressed that the examination delivery process has not received sufficient funding. Some education officers have had to borrow fuel from petrol stations to transport examination materials due to financial constraints.

Mbui highlighted that these challenges might increase anxiety levels among students, potentially affecting their performance during the exams.

Despite these challenges, the Member of Parliament encouraged the candidates to remain calm, give their best efforts, and approach the tests with confidence. He advised them to be prepared for possible delays and stay focused on their examinations.

“I would like to tell our candidates to take it easy and do your best, prepare yourselves for the delays. It’s better they know so that they don’t panic,” Mbui added.

The KCSE examinations began on Monday morning and are scheduled to conclude on November 24, 2023.
