About 1.9 million learners in Kenya are expected to write their National examinations (KCPE and KCSE) beginning tomorrow the 22 and 25 of March for the primary and secondary schools respectively.
The Cabinet Secretary for Education Prof George Magoha has once again assured the candidates that they will sit for the national examination whether registered or not.
"All students, whether in public or private schools are under the custody of the government and they will all sit exams. They will not be victimized because of some irresponsible headteachers." wrote CS Magoha via Twitter.
These sentiments come as a huge relief to many students who were not registered from both public and private schools. At least they are now sure of sitting for the national exams especially following the fact that it's the second time Education CS has made these remarks.
Two days ago, as quoted by The Standard, Magoha stipulated that the unregistered students will do their exams from wherever they will be. Prof Magoha also issued a stun warning to those capable of using this as an advantage to shift already registered candidates to convenient places.
