The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) will administer the 2022 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) national examinations between November and December this year.
Rehearsals for KCPE, as well as the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA), will be conducted on November 25, 2022, with the exams officially beginning on November 28 and ending on November 30, 2022.
Thereafter, there is a long break to allow markers of the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) to have ample time to mark. The marking will begin on January 2 to 20, and that will automatically extend the school's opening dates by approximately three weeks.
The first term holiday break will be from April 23 to May 7, lasting only two weeks. The second term will commence from May 8 to August 1, with students taking the half-term break from June 29 to July 2.
“The term’s holiday will be for two weeks starting on 12th to 27th August,” read the Ministry of Education timetable.
The third term will begin from August 28 to November 3, while the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination starts from November 6 to November 9.
The Council at the same time-barred examiners who are at a high risk of contracting the Coronavirus from reporting to this year’s marking exercise.
Expectant mothers and those who are currently breastfeeding will not be allowed to report to the marking centers this year.
Examiners who are breastfeeding are advised not to report for marking, since KNEC does not make any arrangement for babies and their helpers.
In addition, marking is strictly residential, and therefore such examiners will not be allowed to commute from outside.
Examiners are also encouraged to defer marking until when their babies are old enough to be left behind at home.
Expectant examiners are equally advised to defer marking for their own safety due to heavy tasks involved until such a time when they can report after delivery and breastfeeding.
