3.0 2021 KCSE Examination Timetable, Instructions & Guidelines TO TEACHERS AND CANDIDATES

3.1 INSTRUCTIONS TO TEACHERS


Teachers are advised to ensure that the candidates read these instructions and guidelines carefully and adhere to them.

The candidates should be made aware of the penalties for examination irregularities or misconduct.


3.2 INSTRUCTIONS TO CANDIDATES


3.2.1 Avail yourself for searching outside the examination room and be seated at your desk/table 15 minutes before the time fixed for the examination in the various papers.

The first session will start at 8.00 a.m. followed by the second session as indicated on the timetable.


3.2.2 A candidate who arrives late will be required to give a satisfactory reason to the Supervisor.

Only in exceptional circumstances will a paper be given to any candidate who is more than half an hour late. Absolute punctuality is essential for all papers.

3.2.3 Check the question paper you have been given to confirm that it is the paper you registered for.


3.2.4 If an examination paper for which you are not registered is handed to you, or if the questions indicate that a map or other material should also have been provided, inform the Supervisor at once.


3.2.5 Attend carefully to any general instructions that may be given on the first page of a paper, e.g. instructions limiting the number of questions that should be answered.


3.2.6 Check to ensure that each page of your question paper is printed.
3.2.7 Write your name, index number, sign and write the date of the examination on the answer booklet.

3.2.9 Write the number of the question clearly in the left-hand margin at the beginning of each answer. Do not copy the question.

Be careful to use the same system of numbering as appears in the question paper. Leave a blank line after the answer to each question.

Bring mathematical and drawing instruments for subjects for which they will be needed.


3.2.11 Read each question carefully. A lot of time may be wasted in writing down information that is not asked for and no marks will be given for it.


3.2.12 Do not spend too much time on one or two questions. Leave yourself adequate time to answer other questions.


3.2.13 As soon as notice is given to stop, make sure your name, index number, signature and the date of the examination are written on the answer booklet and then hand it over to the supervisor/ invigilator.


3.3 CAUTION TO CANDIDATES

You should not give or obtain unfair assistance, or attempt to do so, whether by copying or in any other way, and your work should not show proof of such unfair assistance.


3.3.3 No communication whatsoever in whatever manner between candidates or with outsiders is allowed during the examination.
