 The Kenya National Examination Council had earlier indicated the results would be released before Christmas. The Star has, however, established that the exercise is at an advanced stage and results compilation will soon start.

Knec estimated it would take longer than marking of KCPE exam. The latter relies on machines while marking of secondary school exam is done manually. Knec chairperson George Magoha yesterday said the bulk of the papers have been dispensed with.

About 20 national schools in Nairobi and environs are acting as marking centres. They have at least 4,000 examiners.

The exam was conducted under strict guidelines to curb cheating and malpractice. Some 110 individuals, including students, were arrested for attempting to cheat while four were deregistered over impersonation.
