KNEC has cancelled KCSE examinations results of 1,205 candidates alleged to have been involved cheating.

Addressing the media on Wednesday, Chairman George Magoha said the students are from 9 out of 10 exam centres that reported cheating in 2017 exams.

Magoha said 11 candidates were found with mobile phones and nine others with unauthorized materials in examination rooms.

“It’s amazing that in some cases the candidates had written the right answers before cancelling them to write wrong answers they received from teachers who colluded with them,” Magoha said.

Magoha said the candidates whose results have been cancelled are free to register for this year’s exams at schools of their choice.

“…the students can appeal or register again for the KCSE exams this year,” Magoha said adding that the deadline of registration is February 28.

He said 67 candidates were cleared and they will receive their results. The names of the schools will be released starting tomorrow after the candidates who have been cleared receive their results.

But Magoha refused to reveal the number of teachers found complicit.

Forty teachers were involved in KCSE exam irregularities. TSC boss Nancy Macharia said they and must be punished
