Government again forbids mock and joint exams in all schools, ordering “Desist from Holding Any.”

Government again forbids mock and joint exams in all schools, ordering “Desist  from Holding Any.”

Belio Kipsang, the principal secretary for  education, gave nationwide education  directors orders to enforce the restriction. All schools should refrain from conducting any  interschool competitions, according to Kipsang, because doing so would conflict with the  academic schedule. The suggestions presented by the Special  Investigation Team led by Claire Omollo and  the Parliamentary Committee on Education  informed the PS’s statement.

Mock banned to stop commercialisation of education. In a circular released by former Education permanent secretary Karega Mutahi in August 2008, the government prohibited mocks to streamline student assessment.

Centralized mock exams were eliminated in an effort to lessen the commercialization of education. Schools were allowed to have joint continuous assessment tests (CATs) between schools on either bilateral or multilateral arrangements; provided they were not mock examinations and no special payment is charged to students.
