KNEC Issues Guidelines On 2021 KCPE And KCSE Exams

The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has announced a raft of measures to ensure that the 2021 national examinations will be conducted according to the Ministry of Education exams calendar.

KNEC CEO, David Njeng'ere, insisted that the council has begun training teachers on how to mark the exams. On account of primary school teachers, they would be trained as examiners in English Composition and Kiswahili Insha, while for secondary school teachers will be trained for English, Kiswahili, Biology, Chemistry, History and Government, Agriculture and Christian and Religious Education (CRE).

The tutors, once trained, will be incorporated into the council's examiners database.

Further, the government would ensure strict adherence to the Ministry of Health guidelines on Covid-19 pandemic so as to prevent more interruption on the school calendar

As indicated by the Ministry of Education, KCPE examination will be taken between March 4, 2022 and March 9, 2022. KCSE examinations, then again, will take place between February 28, 2022, and April 1, 2022. Njeng'ere announced that 1,225,693 candidates have enrolled for KCPE 2021 while 831,026 enrolled for KCSE exams this year.

This shows a significant increase as far as enrollment when compared with the 2020 national examinations. 1,191,608 candidates sat for the KCPE 2020, implying that 34,085 additional candidates will sit for the 2021 exams representing a 2.86 percent increment.

78,424 additional candidates will likewise sit the 2021 KCSE-a 10.42 percent increment when compared with the previous year.

This comes as the Ministry of Education initiated measures to ensure the 100% transition and ensure all students continue learning.

This has seen Education CS George Magoha just as education stakeholders leading door-to-door mop up exercise to follow all students who have not yet reported to secondary schools.
