Matiangi makes important announcement to all candidates

Matiangi announced that all candidates would be required to use Unique Personal Identifiers.

Matiangi disclosed that this year’s candidates will be the first lot to use the Unique Personal Identifiers (UPI) under the National Education Management Information System (NEMIS) programme.

The new system is set to replace the traditional index numbers system that has been used by candidates during examinations by decades.

Students will use a single UPI at all levels of their education to University level.

The UPI will help the government track their education progress and eliminate the culture of fake certificates and unpaid HELB loans.

Dr Matiang’i who was the chair of the project said the use of personal numbers would help to manage data in the education sector.

The ministry has in the recent past found it hard to verify the exact number of students in schools, with different agencies providing conflicting figures.

He explained earlier in the year that the new system had been designed in such a way that only head teachers can upload information directly to the system and only they can change their data.

It will also enable the government to generate data on the teacher-student ratio in every school.

"Allocation of resources will never be an act of guesswork as we go forward," Education CS Fred Matiang’i stated.
