He said 209 students were caught with unauthorised materials, 179 were found with mobile phones in the examination rooms while 20 impersonated candidates.

Mr Kaimenyi said the overall performance for 2014 candidates improved from those who sat for the examination in 2013

A total of 3,073 candidates scored A in 2014 compared to 2,722 who sat for KCSE in 2013.
