The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has invited teachers to apply to be considered as exam markers for this year’s national examinations.
In a statement released on Friday, KNEC CEO David Njeng’ere stated that teachers interested in marking the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) and the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) must submit their applications online.
Njeng’ere specified that teachers intending to mark KCPE exams should submit their applications starting from October 16, 2023 while those seeking to mark KCSE exams as from November 1, 2023.
“Those who have forgotten their passwords should click on reset password button to enter their mobile numbers in the format (2547****) and submit to receive a new password for logging into the system,” He stated.
He emphasized the importance of entering personal information and saving the changes once successfully logged in.
He encouraged Teachers to utilize the provided dashboard to access, download, print, and review the invitation letters and marking instructions.
Njeng’ere further mentioned that the invitation letters would contain instructions regarding the acceptance or rejection of the marking offer.
Standard 8 and Form 4 candidates are set to sit for their national exams at the end of October.
The number of candidates registered for KCPE was the highest ever recorded in the country, with just under a million for KCSE and 1.4 million for KCPE. Additionally, 1.2 million candidates were registered for the inaugural KPSEA.
KCSE exams are scheduled to commence on October 23 and end on November 24, with rehearsals on October 19. For KCPE and KPSEA, the rehearsal date is set for October 27, and exams would take place from October 30 to November 1.
