Ezekiel Machogu, the cabinet secretary for education, gave Kenyans confidence in the validity of this year's national exam on Monday.

Machogu said the government has put security measures in place to ensure incidences of exam cheating are reduced while overseeing the distribution of Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) examination papers in Mombasa. He said that all 493 of the country's testing facilities received the Class 8 and Grade 6 candidates' exam materials on schedule.

More than 1.6 million students have signed up to take the KPSEA exam in grade 6. Candidates for Standard 8 will take Mathematics, English language, and Composition exams on Monday. They will have Science, Kiswahili, and Insha on Tuesday.

Additionally, kids will have papers due in Religious Education and Social Studies on the last day. English and Mathematics will be the first two subjects given to sixth-graders on Monday. The students will be evaluated in Integrated Science and Kiswahili on Tuesday.

Wednesday's Creative Arts and Social Studies exam will wrap up the initial evaluation. Science and technology, agriculture, home science, and physical health have been combined into five Integrated Science courses for Grade 6.

Social studies, Christian, Islamic, and Hindu education, arts and crafts, and music are all included in the field of creative arts and social studies. The two school based tests each account for 20%, with summative assessments accounting for 60%.
