This year’s Coordination exercise shall be held at four venues; Murang’a Teachers Training College, Kilimambogo Teachers Training College, Thogoto Teachers Training College and Railway Training Institute.
Some of the senior examiners, who are Centre managers, will have to hand over to their assistant Centre managers; the deputy principals as the KCSE examinations are still ongoing. There is a total of one thousand two hundred and sixty Chief Examiners, Assistant Chief Examiners and Team Leaders.
The marking exercises will kick off immediately after the last paper of this year’s examinations across various marking Centres; in Nairobi. Already, Examiners recruited by the Kenya National Examinations council, to mark the KCSE exams, have received their invitation letters with marking details.
