NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 12 – The Kenya Accountancy and Secretaries National Examinations Board (KASNEB) plans to begin administering online examinations in the next three years as it seeks to add 20 percent of students it examines.

KASNEB Chief Executive Pius Nduatih says the board is set to partner with a United Kingdom examination firm which will provide the board with the platform for online examinations.

He says a feasibility study is still ongoing to provide a conclusive outlay of how much investment it will require.

Nduatih was speaking on Tuesday during the laying of the foundation stone of Phase II of the KASNEB Towers – an 18 storey building.

“Today’s generation wants to do things via the mobile phone, laptop, computer; I believe that by providing that facility a greater number of them will become interested in the courses we administer,” Nduatih told Capital FM Business.

The body offers about eight courses to about 100,000 students with about 30,000 students seating for final examinations every year.

Nduatih says the KASNEB Towers Phase II defines a new growth path for KASNEB. The project costs Sh1.2 billion which will be generated internally.

The building will be complete in the 2016/2017 financial year and occupants expected in the 2018/2019 financial year.

“We are expecting the building to pay back in 10 years, and we are already in search for a managing agent,” Nduatih said.

The building located next to KASNEB Towers Phase I, will have seven parking floors, a gymnasium, a multipurpose hall and eight typical office floors.
