Bungoma: Students in 15 centres risk missing KCPE and KPSEA exams

TSC CEO Nancy Macharia engages a candidate on first day of national exam.

  • The 15 private schools registered pupils but did not show up to pick materials, neither did they give a reason for their absence.

Students from 15 exam centres in Bungoma County risk missing the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) exams.

This is after their center managers failed to pick exam materials on Monday morning as the national exercise began.

According to acting Bungoma County Commissioner Duncan Okwach, the 15 private schools registered pupils but did not show up to pick materials, neither did they give a reason for their absence.

Okwach said a team has been sent to find out where the students are.

Speaking at Bungoma DEB primary, Okwach noted that there are exam centers, especially private schools, that had been earlier closed due to non-compliance. He said the 15 exam centres could be amongst them.

Bungoma County has 1007 KPSEA centers and 951 KCPE centers.
