KCSE results for 1,205 candidates voided over cheating

KNEC Chairman George Magoha, however, says the affected students can register for resits this year before the portal is closed next month

The Kenya National Examinations Council has cancelled the results of 1,205 candidates who sat the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations over cheating.

KNEC Chairman George Magoha says nine examination centres have been affected by cancellations and will suffer consequences where there was collusion between students and the management.

Magoha however says the affected students have the opportunity to register to sit for the examinations afresh this year before the portal is closed next month.

A tenth school whose results were also withheld has however been cleared of suspicion with Magoha declining to reveal the identities of the affected schools.

He has also declined to venture into how suspect teachers and invigilators will be dealt with saying to do so would be to usurp the powers of the Teachers Service Commission
