KNEC Clarifies on KCPE, KCSE Examiners Job Advert.

The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has responded to social media reports requesting applications for teachers to be trained in preparation for national exams.

KNEC stated in a statement dated Thursday, July 21, that the advertisement had spread across social media platforms, urging Kenyans online to treat the post with the contempt it deserves.

According to the report, each applicant was required to pay a training fee of Ksh10,500 via mobile money services.

“Each applicant will be required to pay a training fee of Ksh10,500 through KNEC pay bill number 819313 using their own registered mobile phone number.”

“For the account number, the applicant shall indicate the applicable examination i.e. KCPE, KCSE, PTE, DTE, Business, or Technical. The Reference Number must be captured on the application form in the space provided.

“Qualified applicants will be trained to mark the above examinations. Successful trainees will be incorporated into KNEC Examiners’ database.

“KNEC will thereafter engage such examiners using criteria for recruitment of examiners based on the needs,” read part of the flagged post.

According to the fake letter, applications were due by September 2022, with training scheduled from October 3 to October 9.

Official communication would be posted on KNEC’s verified platforms, according to the company.

As schools enter the final stretch of the academic year, students are working around the clock to prepare for national exams.

According to the school calendar, the second term will end on September 17 for a one-week break and resume on September 26, 2022.


The KCPE exam will be administered from November 28 to December 1, while the KCSE exam will be administered from December 1 to December 23.
