TSC Urges Principals To Uphold Integrity in Examinations.

Teachers have been urged to be vigilant against cheating in this year’s five national exams.


Teachers Service Commission (TSC) Chief Executive Dr Nancy Macharia asked school principals to ensure Grade 6, Class 8, and Form 4 candidates are adequately prepared to sit the five national examinations scheduled for the 2022 calendar year in a statement issued ahead of the examinations, which begin this month.

“At times, those in positions of centre managers, supervisers and invigilators have been found culpable of exams malpractice,” Dr Macharia said. 

She added: “As you prepare to enter the third term during which the 2021 national examinations will be conducted, I wish to remind all teachers to prepare the candidates well and desist from the temptation of engaging in any examination malpractices,” she said.

The 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams are set to take place in March 2022.

Candidates will take the 2022 Grade 6, KCPE, and KCSE national examinations in November and December 2022.

‘‘I urge you to familiarise yourselves with the CBC since the first CBC cohort will join junior secondary school in 2023,’’ she said.

The role of the teacher has fundamentally changed as a result of the curriculum change, she claims, implying that teachers must use differentiated modes of instruction and assessment in order for students to benefit individually and progress meaningfully.

 ‘‘Teachers need to be techno-savvy not only to access online educational resources and diversify their modes of curriculum delivery but also to access a whole range of automated services offered by the Commission,” she said.

She believes that incorporating ICT into teaching and learning will help teachers improve their content delivery and classroom engagement.


She urged teachers to adopt remote learning methodologies as a strategy to ensure that learning continues even during pandemics like COVID-19.
