The Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) is an exam administered by Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) to mark the end of secondary education level. This exam is usually administered during the month of November and results released before the end of the year. For class 8 candidates, they sit for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education, KCPE, exams.

Marking of the Exams

The KCSE and KCPE exams are marked by trained examiners. The exams are marked at designated marking centres in Nairobi and its environs. This is a rigorous exercise and is closely monitored by the Council and the Government at large. Part of the KCPE scripts (Composition and Insha) are marked by examiners while the other multiple choice exams are marked by fast Optical Mark Recognition Scanners (OMR).
