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.KCPE candidates during a past rehearsal

"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.CS Magoha wants all degrees in the country verified
