Parents have been cautioned by the authorities not to purchase test sample papers that are being supplied illegally.
The exam questions are aimed at Grade 6 pupils who will be transferring to Junior Secondary Schools, according to the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD).
The remaining 60% will come from formative tests taken in Grades 4, 5, and 6. In January 2023, placement for junior secondary schools will be based on the final score.
He issued a warning that the dealers are destroying the Competency-Based Curriculum preparation for the tests slated for November (CBC).
The warning should also be applied to any other exam papers that are being offered in the market illegally, according to KICD.
"There are people offering model papers that are purportedly for Grade 6, where learners will be tested. You cannot purchase them; KICD must approve them. We aim to make this evaluation as natural and similar to what students do in school on a daily basis as we can "Added Ong'ondo.
"Let parents expect a low stakes evaluation as we already have 60% of their abilities through 20 marks from Grades 4, 5, and 6," the statement continued.
The placement and transition procedure guidelines have not yet been made public by the Ministry of Education under the leadership of Cabinet Secretary George Magoha.
Candidates will take a School-Based Assessment (SBA) test in their home institutions, which will be graded by their teachers, according to KNEC Chief Executive Officer David Njegere.
They will then register for the national exam after the evaluation's results have been submitted to the portal.
"KNEC should register students and give them a number. They must have completed a School-Based Assessment for the intermediate level and published the results of at least one SBA to the KNEC portal "Declared Njegere.
Five papers will be written by students over the course of three days: Mathematics and English on Day 1, Integrated Science and Kiswahili on Day 2, and Creative Arts and Social Studies on Day 3.
