As candidates are preparing to sit for their national exams, the Ministry of Education is burning the midnight oil to ensure everything goes to plan. In the recent years, cases of exams irregularities have been tamed. Teachers marking the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) have had issues in the past with the Kenya National Exam Council (KNEC). Their bodies -KUPPET and KNUT-have been pushing KNEC not to tax its members and prompting payments.
Payment for teachers marking exams
The lowest paid examiner will get kes42 per script while the highest will pocket kes68. Examiners will also be provided with return fare based on distance travelled. Coordination fee is between kes150 and kes300 per day. Teachers, through their unions, have been pushing the coordination fee to jump to kes1,000 and per script to be increased to kes130.
Secondary school examiners pocket kes30,000 before taxes.
