  • The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has issued guidelines for examiners as they prepare for the 2021 KCPE and KCSE examinations 

    In a notice on Tuesday, March 16, the Council directed examiners on how to participate in the marking exercise for the examinations.

    The letters will be accessible on KNEC's online platform from March 16 for KCPE Examiners and from March 22 for KCSE Examiners.

    The examiners are required to access the KNEC Contracted Professionals Website using the link https://examinersapp.knec.ac.ke.

    Those with Contracted Professionals System (CP2) accounts and passwords, will log in to the Examiners portal using their username and password.

    For those without passwords, click on the reset password button to enter your mobile number in the
    format (2547****) and submit to get the username and password for logging into the system.

    Upon successful login, one is advised to complete their personal information and save.

    "Using the dashboard provided, access, read, accept or reject the invitation letter provided. After one accepts the offer letter, download and print the invitation letter," KNEC directed.

    For further details one can contact, 0720 741003, 0732 333530, 0775 471980, 0775 471997; 4.2 Email addresses: sefa@knec.ac.ke and fa@knec.ac.ke.

    KNEC had in February announced that teachers could apply to schools as centre managers, supervisors, invigilators, examiners, makers and security personnel to assist with the administration of KCPE and KCSE exams. 

    The council attributed the vacancies to the increase in the number of candidates who will be sitting the exams in March 2021.

    Over two million candidates registered for the national exam as compared to 1.6 million for both primary and secondary schools in 2019.

    KNEC deployed 264,446 professionals to schools in 2019 with that number increasing by 15,000 in 2021 as it looks forward to conducting tests under strict Covid-19 rules and other measures set to curb cheating
