The Education Cabinet Secretary prof George Magoha disclosed that the ministry had received clear evidence that the students cheated on the examinations.
Out of the 287 students, 112 had unauthorized materials in the exam room. A total of 44 mobile phones were also found.
Before the marking began, the ministry announced that 35 marking centers had been chosen for the exercise in some secondary schools and tertiary institutions in order of the subjects.
