He also urged Attorney General Githu Muigai to work with DPP Keriako and ensure over 700 teachers involved in exam irregularities are punished to serve as an example. ICT Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru acknowledged the data entry clerks for the good work they did in helping with marking of KCSE with was done within 11 days.

Why candidates failed 2017 KCSE tests en masse – examiners

The mass failure by candidates in last year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination has been attributed to misunderstanding of questions.

In their report, examiners noted that most answers to questions requiring elaborate responses were inadequate.

“The examiners reported that some of the questions that tested candidates’ ability to DISCUSS or EXPLAIN certain concepts that they had learnt were poorly answered, with many candidates either listing or providing sketchy answers,” Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i said during the release of the results at Nairobi School on Wednesday.

Dr Matiang’i said although the ministry and the Kenya National Examinations Council have yet to carry out an elaborate assessment to find out the reasons for the poor response to these type of questions, examiners had pointed out that many candidates relied heavily on sketchy revision books and past papers during their revision.

Such revision books and past papers don’t contain detailed explanations.

KCSE 2017 Failure – Reasons

A report on the 2014, 2015 and 2016 KCSE examination released by the ministry of Education this year identified use of sheng (colloquial language), failure to follow instructions, poor time management and rush to answer questions before understanding them, as some of the reasons for failure by students.

It also found out that some students were failing because of inadequate language skills.

“With the government’s plan to supply textbooks directly to schools, candidates should be adequately prepared to answer questions in all areas appropriately,” Dr Matiang’i noted.

KCSE 2017 Failure – Textbooks

He said the ministry was determined to ensure that every child accesses relevant reading and learning materials.

“For this reason, the ministry has come up with a direct-to-school policy on book distribution that will ensure our public schools attain the 1:1 book ratio.

“This will also eliminate middle men who collude with corrupt school officials to steal from the government and our children.

“Because textbooks will bear the “Not-for-Sale” label, this policy will help us to curb piracy, which has cost the government billions of shillings in revenue,” the CS said.

Thousands miss out on varsities over poor KCSE 2017 Results

Hundreds of thousands of this year’s Form Four leavers have been locked out of universities and other tertiary institutions.

The Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) test results released on Wednesday by Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i indicate that only 70,073 out of the 611,952 candidates – just 11.5 per cent — managed the minimum university entry qualification of mean grade C+.

In 2016, some 88,929 qualified. And, for the second year running, private universities and colleges have been thrown into a crisis for lack of students. The more than 70 universities have a capacity of over 100,000.

KCSE Results 2017 – Universities

Performance in the KCSE exam remained almost unchanged this year and in 2016.

There were 142 (0.02 per cent) candidates who obtained an overall mean grade A in the 2017 exam compared to 141 (0.02 per cent) last year.

Last year, Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) placed 71,089 students in public universities while 17,368 joined private universities.

Most of the more than 31 public universities that have been relying on parallel students will once again go back to the drawing board.

Parallel students pay more fees compared to regular ones, which the universities use to fund their development activities.

KCSE Results 2017  – Teachers Union

Private universities, which have also invested heavily in a bid to enhance capacity, will once again miss students.

Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) Secretary-General Akelo Misori dismissed the results, saying Dr Matiang’i’s focus was to deny private universities and colleges students.

The unionist said teachers’ colleges and Kenya Medical Training Colleges will not get students, adding that the CS was more focused on administration of national examinations than its credibility.

Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) Secretary-General Wilson Sossion echoed Mr Misori’s sentiments.

KCSE Results 2017 – Enrolment

Public universities have spent massive resources, most of it borrowed, to set up hundreds of satellite campuses to cater for the demand for higher education, which has been surging every year with thousands registering, especially for evening classes.

However, several universities have closed down a number of satellite campuses for lack of students. The institutions have also hired hundreds of part-time lecturers to teach Module 2 programmes. This means thousands of lecturers and other workers will lose their jobs as the institutions lay off staff.

KCSE Results 2017 – Jobs

Only 142 candidates scored A, 2,714 A-, 7,344 B+, 12,628 B, 19,385 B- and 27,860 C+. These are the ones who will go to university.

The candidates with C totalled 40,474 as 61,040 scored C-, 88,447 D+, 135,550 D, 179,381 D- and 35,536 E.

This means that more than half of the candidates scored D and below and cannot pursue any professional courses. They cannot also join the security forces or the teaching profession.

To join the security forces, D+ is the minimum grade while those who want to be P1 teachers must have scored C plain, or D+ for early childhood development education (ECDE) tutors.

KCSE Results 2017 – Exam Marking

The low scorers will have to scramble for limited vocational training slots.

Last year, 141 candidates scored A, 4,645 had A-, 10,975 B+, 17,216 B, 23,745 B-, 32,207 C+, 44,792 C, 61,026 C-, 80,951 D+, 112,135 D, 149,929 D- and 33,399 E.

Dr Matiang’i raised his concerns over poor performance in the examination but assured Kenyans that the tough measures that he introduced to fight cheating will be sustained.

Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) Chairman George Magoha defended the results, saying due process was followed as marking of the scripts was done with due diligence.

Prof Magoha said marking was done in 25 centres in Nairobi so that Knec could monitor them on a daily basis.

Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang proclaimed: “Our biggest investment has been in ICT.”

Majority of 2017 KCSE candidates scored D plus and below

Nearly three-quarters of the candidates who sat the 2017 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam scored a D + (plus) and below.

Of the 615,772 candidates who wrote this year’s KCSE exam, 438,914 had a D plus and below with only 176,858 scoring a C minus and above, a jaw-dropping 71%.

Only 70,073 candidates attained the university entry grade of C+ and above compared to 88,929 the previous year.

In this year’s exam, 540,428 candidates (90%) scored between grade E and C plain compared to 482,232 last year.

A majority of the candidates (179,381) had a D minus, a mind blowing dismal performance that has raised eyebrows and formed debate on various fronts including the political sphere.

How boys beat girls in the 2017 KCSE examinations

The number of girls who attained the minimum grade C+ required for university admission nearly halved in this year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations, putting to question the Ministry of Education’s assertion that girls had pipped their male counterparts in the exams.

The results, which Education secretary Fred Matiang’i released on Wednesday, show that only 28,386 girls scored the C+ and above required for university admission, down from 50,415 that made the cut last year – representing a 43.7 per cent drop.

The number of boys who qualified for university admission on the other hand went up by 904 to 41,687 from 40,783 last year – or 59.49 per cent of the total students who qualified for university enrolment.

While releasing the results, Dr Matiang’i commended female candidates for sterling performance, saying they had outshone the boys. Kenya on Thursday woke up to a fierce social media war as parents, students and the general public interrogated the numbers only to find a completely different picture.

Dr Matiang’i’s observation may have been rooted in the fact that girls comprised six out of the 10 top scorers and 11 out of the top 20 students nationally.

Girls’ schools also dominated the top 10 places, led by Pangani Girls, which was flagged out as most improved school.

Alliance Girls High School, which finished in position three, had the highest number of ‘A’s (16) followed by Kenya High (position 4), which had 10.

Overall, 70,073 of the 610,501 candidates met the C+ threshold for university enrolment — an 18,000 drop from last year when 88,929 candidates made the cut.

KCSE Results 2017: How KCSE 2017 was Marked

Teachers picked to mark this year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations were first made to sit the same papers they were to mark.

Unlike in the past when the selected national markers would sit down with the setter of the papers to discuss the answers, this time round, the markers’s proficiency was tested by the Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) chiefs.

Reliable sources at the national marking centres narrated to The Standard how markers for respective papers were tested for proficiency before being allowed to proceed with the exercise.

A senior KCSE marker who took part in the examinations said those who failed to score at least 95 per cent were discontinued. The rules were very tight for key subjects such as Maths and English, Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

KCSE Results 2017 Marking Pre-qualification

“The overriding concern was that there was no way a marker who did not get all the answers right could mark the paper,” he told The Standard in Kisumu yesterday.

Not even the chief examiner was spared. Sources disclosed they were the first to sit the KCSE papers in a process dubbed pre-qualification.

The exercise took four days after the selected markers reported to the various national marking stations.

The chief examiner’s test was marked by the setter before he administered the same test to all his assistants.

After that, he met the assistant chief examiners (ACEs) to discuss the paper and the marking scheme. This was done to allow the chief and ACEs to agree on the marking procedure.

“Thereafter, they met the various team leaders numbering about 100 to discuss the paper and then, under the guidance of chief examiners and ACEs, conducted the same tests on the team leaders,” he said.

The team leaders’ tests were marked by the ACEs who then retreated to discuss each question and possible answers alongside those prescribed in the marking schemes for any necessary amendments.

It is after this that the close to 1,200 markers were asked to report to the marking centres and made to sit the paper.

Team leaders were divided into about six or eight groups, whose members were expected to mark about 580 papers per person.

The markers and the team leaders also had to discuss the questions and their answers as provided in the marking schemes.

During the discussions, markers were allowed to include alternative answers that were not in the marking schemes, like methods used in calculations.

The markers were then subjected to marking of dummies or photocopies of the papers.

These dummies had already been marked by chief examiners, ACEs and team leaders and common scores arrived at.

Each of the markers are required to state how they arrived at each of the marks awarded to the candidates. Time is then allowed for criticism.

After marking about 12 dummies, the examiners would then again sit for a pre-test.

At this stage, they were expected to mark at least three dummies to be recorded as pre-test.

Again, the outcome was discussed with each of the team leaders. After the pre-test, the papers were remarked again to ascertain if the marks awarded were right.

The purpose of remarking was to ascertain if the candidate deserved what the examiners had given. For instance, if a marker gave a candidate 60 or 80 per cent, would a remark reproduce the same score if done by a new examiner?

In the event the marks deviated, the markers would be disqualified and requested to leave.

The rule of thumb was that there was no way a paper could be marked by about eight people producing similar results only for one person to deviate.

It is after this process that the examiners were subjected to ‘live or real papers’ to mark under very close or tight supervision of team leaders and ACEs.

Marking is done under close surveillance of CCTVs.

No examiner or marker is allowed during this period to access the marking centre with his phone until after 11pm in the night for the entire period.

Examiners were also not allowed to carry electronic gadgets like laptops and tablets to the marking centres.

Marking hours were strictly set to between 7am and 7pm. Only in special cases did marking go beyond these hours, and if it did, the chief examiner was required to liaise with Knec for extension.

In some cases, marking began at 5pm and was extended to 11pm in others with a 10-20 minute break for tea, lunch and supper.

KCSE Results 2017 – Cross-checking

Each paper, sources revealed, was marked in red first by the examiners, then marked again in green by the various team leaders.

Subsequently, it is marked in black by the assistant chief examiners or markers and then by the chief examiners for each of the subjects.

This was after the papers had been cross-checked by various team leaders for audit of the marks awarded. It was then that the marks were entered into the mark sheet.

It was at this point that a packet containing the particulars of each centre was given to the examiners and passed on to another team to cross-check the marks.

Only after this were the marks keyed into a computer.

Access to the IT room where the results are keyed in was restricted. Not even the chief examiner could access this room.

The mark sheets and keyed in marks are then returned to the markers to cross check whether what was keyed into the data base is what they awarded.

KCSE Results 2017 – Red ink

Upon certification, the markers and ACEs will append their signatures using red inked pens, team leaders in green and the chief examiner in blue.

Only then is the mark sheet qualified as properly done.

In the event the marks are not properly entered or are incorrect, the immediate attention of the chief examiner is sought.

This is to allow him to sign a form allowing changes to be made.

Sources revealed within the marking centres, KNEC set up a surveillance office, where the process was keenly monitored.

Girls Turn Tables On Boys In Kcse 2017 Results

The KCSE 2017 results announced Wednesday was dramatic change of fortunes to the performance posted by the same class in the 2013 KCPE. Back then, the list of top ten pupils had more boys than girls. Fast forward to 2017, the top two students are girls.

Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i while announcing the results on Wednesday said female candidates performed better than male candidates.

Alliance Girls and Kenya High School were ranked the top schools, while Pangani Girls was the most improved school.

Back in 2013 when the class sat for their KCPE, it was Brian Kimutai and Otieno Akoth who topped in the country with 444 marks.

It was also stated that fewer candidates have qualified to proceed to the university this year

KCSE Results 2017: Results for 10 schools withheld over exam malpractice

Ten schools will miss the 2017 KCSE examination results following suspected malpractice in the institutions.

“Withholding results of the schools because we want further analysis. Our examiners noted clear evidence of collusion,” Education CS Fred Matiang’i said.

Speaking at Nairobi School on Wednesday, Matiang’i said an team has been setup to scrutinise results that be released on January 18.

“I know people will ask us to prove this allegations and that is why we have asked for more expertise,” he said.

Matiang’i narrated how one school in the Rift valley engaged them in frustrating behaviours during the exams.

“They have engaged in frustrating malpractice. Every senior officer went to that school because of the problems we had,” he said.

“The principal of this school took the cell phones and put them in a bucket of water. It indicates their desperate efforts,” he said.

Matiang’i said the board of the school will be de-registered and did not name the schools affected.

KCSE 2017 Results: Teachers involved in exam irregularities facing de-registration

40 teachers face de-registration should they be found guilty of engaging in exam irregularities.

This was revealed by Teachers Service Commission CEO Nancy Macharia during release of this year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exam results at Nairobi School.

“We will take stern action against them. We shall dismiss and de-register them so that they do not step in any our schools in Kenya either in public or private schools.” warned Macharia

The TSC boss further put on notice teachers in private schools saying that they are subject to the law, warning to de-register those found to be abetting cheating.

On his part, Education Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’i attributed this behavior to teacher’s failure to teach their students.

“Some of our teachers are not teaching and so exam time becomes a desperate time.” Said Matiang’i

Matiang’i further issued a warning to private schools saying that if they are found to have hired a de-registered teacher, the institution would also be de-registered.

“We will pursue these cases and we will act without mercy. We will not compromise on the quality of education of our children.” Said the CS

The TSC boss also intimated that re-organization of school heads has been completed and teachers in primary and secondary schools who have stayed in one station for 9 years and above will be moved.

KCSE 2017 Results: Top performers speak of how they ensured they replicated their success

What do this year’s leading KCSE girl and boy have in common?

Top Students in KCSE 2017 Results:

Naomi Kawira Kirimi of Pangani Girls and Alliance High School’s Kamau Brian Maina both registered sterling performance in the 2013 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education.

Naomi scored 422 marks at Chogoria Primary School while Brian registered 407 marks in his KCPE exam.

Wednesday, Meru was in the news again as it produced the top student nationally. Kirimi hails from Meru.

Naomi was overwhelmed with joy as soon as news came in that she topped with a score of 87.011 points.

But performance by Mt Kenya East regional giants was lacklustre with only three schools making it to the top 100 school nationally.

KCSE 2017 Results: Second best

Just last month, another Meru girl – Sharon Nkatha Murega of Kathingiri Primary School – a public school – emerged the second best student in KCPE exam.

Speaking at the Chogoria Mission Hospital in Tharaka Nithi County where her mother works as a nurse, Naomi said she did not expect to be the top nationally.

The family hails from Kithurine, South Imenti in the neighbouring Meru County.

Her father Kirimi Murungi is a teacher at Kinoru Primary School in Meru town.

She said she could not believe she was the top students but hundreds of friends and family members who called her made her believe the good news.

“l trusted in God, l was focused and determined, l really worked hard and concentrated. I expected good results but honestly, l did not expect to be the first in the country. It was such a shock,” she said.

The calm but jovial girl said she wants to pursue Civil Engineering at the University of Nairobi.

Her mother Jane Kirimi thanked God for the success.

“She was hardworking and an obedient girl who is always serious with her work. She was determined and even contacted her teachers when on holiday to consult them,” said Mrs Kirimi.

The same winning spirit was Wednesday evident in Brian.

Dressed in a red tie, white shirt and black suit, one can tell from first glance the 17-year-old is a young man who has his life in check.

To Brian’s teachers and parents, however, Brian’s emergence as the top boy in Alliance High School and the entire country is not shocking.

“We were talking Wednesday and I joked to him that he might easily top the country,” stated Brian’s excited father, Dr Gideon Maina, who also happens to be an alumnus of the Alliance.

Nevertheless, unlike many top students, Brian’s success story did not start when he joined form one.

Brian had a difficult time transitioning from the easy life of day primary school to the comparatively harsh boarding life.

“One Sunday when he was in Form One, he came home and said he did not want to return to Alliance because life was too fast there,” recalls his mother.

However, Brian’s parents took a firm stance and maintained their decision that he stays at Alliance Boys.

Both parents say that they kept encouraging their son, visiting him at least every two weeks to find out how he was doing.

“Brian was a very hardworking and a selfless student who gave his time to the other students,” remarks Maina Nguru, a long-serving teacher at the school, who also taught Brian’s father.

Brian wants to pursue a double major in Biomedical Engineering and Software Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

KCSE 2017 Results: Enroll all secondary school students into NHIF, Uhuru directs

President Uhuru Kenyatta has directed Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i to work with Ministry of Health to enroll all the 3 million secondary school students into National Health Insurance Fund with effect January next year.

President Uhuru Kenyatta was speaking at State House, Nairobi when he received the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) 2017 results.

Matiang’i at the same promised that the President’s directive would be executed immediately further indicating that proposals were already in place regarding the same.

In November, the government announced that all students in public schools will have medical cover paid for by the Government. The Government further announced a 1,999 shillings per child per year allocation under the medical and insurance allocation.

Parents will however not contribute any monies towards this program. Currently, schools have their own medical and insurance arrangements.

President Kenyatta receives KCSE results 2017

President Kenyatta was today briefed on this year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) results by Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i and his team.

CS Matiang’i said the results are showing a normal curve as reforms in the exam system are entrenched.

President Kenyatta directed CS Matiang’i and the head of the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC), Prof. George Magoha to institutionalise the reforms so that the achievement made in the last few years is maintained.

The President also asked the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to reward principals, schools and subject teachers who excelled to promote continued high performance. But similarly, President Kenyatta said teachers caught cheating should be punished severely to serve as an example to others.

President Kenyatta also directed CS Matiangi to work with Attorney General Githu Muigai to make presentations to the DPP so that cases of cheating involving more than 700 teachers countrywide are expedited.

As part of the President’s Big Four growth agenda, President Kenyatta directed Matiangi to work with the Ministry of Health to enroll all 3 million secondary school students into the NHIF programme with effect from January 2018.

Matiangi was due to release the results to the public at Nairobi School Wednesday morning.

Present were TSC Secretary Nancy Macharia, KNEC Chairman George Magoha and Education PS Belio Kipsang.

KCSE results 2017 won’t be released on Monday, says Knec

Updated: 18.12.2017

The examination council has dismissed as false reports on social media that indicated KCSE results will be released on Monday  (18.12.2017).

KNEC chairman Professor George Magoha said in a statement on Sunday the council will communicate the proper dates that the Education ministry will release the results.

Mogoha warned against the circulation of the false reports saying they are causing unnecessary anxiety among candidates and the public.

“The process of marking national examinations is sensitive that the council often carries out meticulously and without any external pressure. As soon as the process is complete, the Ministry of Education will use its official channels to announce the date and the time of releasing the KCSE results,” Magoha said.

The false reports had indicated that KNEC would brief President Uhuru Kenyatta about the results on Monday at 9am ahead of their release at 10am.

Earlier, communication from Knec indicated that the results would be released before end of this month.

Anxiety and fear as Matiang’i set to release KCSE results 2017 this week

Updated: 17.12.2017

Anxiety has gripped parents and students after indications emerged that this year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination results could be released this week.

The Sunday Standard has established that by end of last week, only six centres were yet to complete marking, with most of the process complete.

Sources in Government said Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i was likely to release the results for the 615,773 candidates before Christmas Day.

“Be on the look-out because as things stand now, the remaining centres are about to complete marking and processing of marks will soon be done with,” said the source who is familiar with the process.

The official who spoke in confidence said compilation of most of the results was complete.

There are only seven days left to Christmas, with December 24 being a Sunday. This means the results are likely to be out between tomorrow and Saturday. A number of teachers who participated in the marking told the Sunday Standard that by last week most of the marking centres had been closed.

Parents and candidates yesterday expressed mixed reactions over the number of quality grades that the students would record this year.

Some said they expected last year’s trends to hold with a few quality grades, while others said they expected improved grades because of negligible examination irregularities registered in the examination.

“We are just waiting and hoping that results will improve this year because cases of cheating were isolated,” said a parent.

Parents and candidates’ fears could hold some weight going by an analysis of KCSE examination results for the last three years. The results released last year shocked many Kenyans as only 141 candidates scored the coveted grade ‘A’ compared to 2,685 who attained the grade in 2015.

Only 4,645 candidates scored grade A–, 10,975 attained B+ while 17,216 scored B plain. A total of 55,952 candidates scored B– and C+ in last year’s results.

Overall, only 88,929 candidates attained the university entry grade of C+ and above compared to 169,492 the previous year.

And of the top 20 best performing candidates nationally in last year’s examinations, 16 were girls.

KCSE Results 2017: Decline in performance

A look at last year’s KCSE results shows that 20 subjects recorded a decline in performance compared to 10 in 2015.

Art & Design, Computer Studies, Drawing & Design, Woodwork and Kenyan Sign Language were the most improved subjects.

A Ministry of Education report on KCSE examination performance between 2014-2016 reveals that the number of candidates who score grade A has continued to drop, with the lowest score recorded last year. The report is dated July 18, 2017.

The year 2014 recorded the highest number of students who scored grade A, with some 3,042 candidates posting the grade.

This came down to 2,685 in 2015 and only 141 last year.

The data also shows an increasing trend of poor grades, with some 557,911 candidates scoring grade D to E over the past three years.

Last year recorded the highest number of low grades with 295,463 candidates scoring grade D and below. This represented more than half the candidates (51.7 per cent) who sat the 2016 KCSE examination.

In 2015, some 133,885 candidates scored grade D and below, representing 25.6 per cent of the total candidature.

And 128,885 scored graded D and below in 2014, representing 26.9 per cent of the total candidates that year.

KCSE Results 2017: University entry grade

The scenario is the same for the total number of students who posted the minimum university entry grade for the last three years.

Last year again recorded the lowest number of those who scored C+ and above, with only 88,929, representing 15.6 per cent. In 2015, some 169,492­ managed the university entry grade, nearly double the number registered last year.

The year 2014 recorded the highest number of those who attained university entry grade at 159,370, representing 33.3 per cent.

Based on this trend, parents and candidates have a reason to worry as time ticks towards release of this year’s results.

The trend is also not steady for candidates who post middle level grades of C and D+.

Over the last three years, a total of 595,670 candidates scored grades C to D+.

Last year, 186,769 candidates managed grade C and D+ while 218,185 were recorded in 2015 and another 190,717 in 2014.

KCSE results 2017 to be released next week, says ministry official

Updated: 16.12.2017

The education ministry may release the KCSE results next week, an official has said. Examiners finished marking the tests this week and the Kenya National Examination Council is currently compiling the results.

Earlier, communication from the Knec indicated the exam results would be released before end of this month. The marking of the exam started immediately after the conclusion of the tests on December 3. It was being done in about 20 centres in Nairobi and its environs.

The source on Friday said that Education CS Fred Matiang’i is expected to present a brief of the results to President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House on Monday.

“About 200,000 papers were yet to be marked when this week began. This was a small number that was completed before the end of week and the results sent to the Knec headquarters.”

The announcement will come earlier than usual as promised by the CS to give way for admissions to universities. Previously, the exam agency released the results in late January or early February of the following year.

This year, 615,773 candidates sat KCSE exam in 9,350 centres, being a five per cent increase from last year’s 577,253 candidates. Of this, 1,404 were special needs students. The exam was conducted in what Matiang’i termed as ‘military precision’.

Examiners were restricted from taking away answer scripts, marking schemes or any marking materials from the marking rooms or centres. Those found violating the directive were to be dismissed and a report made for disciplinary action.
