KCSE candidate refuses to write exam, tells administrators she ‘wasn’t prepared’

KCSE administrators
in Rongai Sub-County in Nakuru had a difficult time on Tuesday trying to
convince a candidate at Ngata Girls’ High School to sit the national test.

The student
declined to write the exam, saying she wasn’t adequately prepared, and had
decided to register for the 2020 KCSE.

The teenager said
the main reason why she wasn’t prepared to sit this year’s exam was that she
got a baby three months ago, and learning how to parent consumed a lot of her

Attempts to
convince her to give answers to whatever she knew in the test bore no fruit, as
she told off the exam administrators.

Rongai Deputy
County Commissioner, Julius Kavita, told K24
that following the girl’s decision, he was forced to write a formal
letter to the County Director of Education explaining why the candidate
declined to take the test.

Kavita refuted
allegations that Ngata Girls’ High School principal “intentionally denied the
candidate” the opportunity to write the exam.
