242,406 teachers to supervise and mark 2021 KCSE and KCPE.

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has delegated national exam supervision and marking duties to 242,406 teachers.

TSC boss Nancy Macharia said during an inter-ministerial address at the Kenya School of Government on Friday, February 18, that the teachers will be presented to the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) to serve as invigilators, supervisors, centre managers, and examiners.

“Only the best cream of teachers, those who do not have any known disciplinary issues, have been identified as part of the Commission’s determination to guarantee integrity in examination administration,” she said.

According to KNEC CEO Dr David Njeng’ere, 1,225,507 candidates have registered for the 2021 KCPE, while 831,015 will take the KCSE.

Enrollment represents a relatively significant increase over the previous year’s candidate population.

Thirty-three thousand, seven hundred and fifty-five (33,755) more candidates will take the KCPE in 2021 than in 2020. There were 1,191,752 candidates who registered for the 2020 KCPE.
