why only two cases of exam cheating were recorded in the 2023 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE)
Only two candidates out of 1.4 million who sat for the 2023 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) were caught cheating.
One of the candidates was found in the examination room with authorised notes while the other had a mobile phone, contrary to examination rules.
Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu termed it a great improvement compared to last year’s KCPE examinations.
Last year, some 252 students engaged in examination malpractices. The cases were attributed to earlier exposure of exams and invigilators colluding with the candidates.
Speaking at Mtihani House, Nairobi, yesterday, while releasing the 2023 KCPE results, Machogu applauded the candidates and officials who collaborated to make ensure the integrity of the examination.
