On day one of the ongoing national examinations, a total of 67 schools failed to turn up to pick the exam papers. This send confusion among the parents but the permanent secretary for basic education while opening the exams on day 2 at Malindi has clarified the issue.
According to the PS the 52 schools based in Uasin Gishu were forced to shut down during covid 19 pandemic as the economic conditions worsened. Fifteen of them were from Bungoma. The said schools had registered about 9 to 5 learners who moved to other schools. And as per summative assessment, the grade three learners move to other schools with their marks.

The PS however assured the public that such challenge cannot happen to class eight candidates as they only register for exams once in grade eight. However, for the KPSEA, they will analyse the challenges encountered and come up with substantive solution for future examinations.
