The KCPE exams have kicked off smoothly in all the 742 examination centres in Nandi County, with a total of 22,656 candidates doing the exams in the County.
Nandi County Director of Education Mr. Lawrence Karuntimi said the exam materials were delivered to the exam centres on time. He revealed that the exercise went on smoothly without any hitches as they didn’t encounter any difficulty with transportation.
He said he hadn’t heard of any cases of pupils who were doing their exams in hospitals or maternity wards this year, unlike last year when three candidates in Mosop were in maternity wards.
This year, Nandi County has a higher number of registered KCPE candidates compared to 2015 and 2016, where the numbers stood at 19,917 and 21,100 respectively.
