CS Magoha noted that all 747,171 students would be enrolled to higher education, tertiary institutions through KUPPS.

“All students deserve a place in our education system,” Magoha said during the release. TSC CEO Nancy Macharia noted that strict measures had been implemented to curb the cheating cases caught during the examination period.

“We must however be cautious of allegations of some teachers who were framed by the real examination crooks.  We will thoroughly investigate the case where a teacher had a screenshot of the exam on her WhatsApp status,” she said during the release of the KCSE examination.
