According to Education CS George Magoha marking started on Monday.
By Wednesday, day one papers had already been marked.
“If we challenge ourselves, the results will come out within fourteen days,” Magoha said.
The examination started on Monday with Mathematics, Composition, and English, Kiswahili Lugha, Insha and Science on Tuesday.
