Candidates misbehaving during the ongoing Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams will miss their certificates of good conduct.

Principal Secretary at the State Department of University Education and Research Simon Nabukwesi said that the government was taking the incidents seriously. Nabukwesi who oversaw the distribution of exam papers in Nakuru  spoke on the backdrop of an incident where 70 male candidates sneaked out of school on Thursday night.

“The appropriate measures shall be taken against the students after their last paper. They will miss their certificates of good conduct until they satisfy security agencies that they have reformed,” he said.
