Seventy nine students of the Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC), Kakamega campus have been locked out of this year’s national tests, which began on Tuesday, September 10, and are set to end on Wednesday, September 11.
The aggrieved students, who were to seat for the Clinical Officers Council Examination, said they had paid the required Ksh5, 000 for tests registration, but were shocked to learn on Tuesday that their names weren’t forwarded to the council.
The learners, who joined the institution in 2016, have accused KMTC-Kakamega campus administration of not helping them go about the exam registration process appropriately.
The college principal, Dr. Jeremiah Ngomo, said it was “regrettable” that the entire class will miss this year’s examinations, promising to have the students enrolled for the national tests in April and May, 2020.
Dr Ngomo did not reveal what led to the students being locked out of this year’s tests.
Clinical Officers Council is a government agency that regulates the education and institutions offering clinical medicine courses in Kenya.
The agency further registers qualified clinical officers to practice in the country.
