Sick students to take national exams after recovery

A plan that advises enabling unwell students taking national examinations to heal before taking the exams, rather than administering them in the hospital, has received approval from the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) Kilifi branch teachers’ organization.

Julius Melly, the head of the education committee of the National Assembly, proposed this idea. Melly stated that it is unfair to subject ill and hospitalized students to exams, and he suggested providing make-up exams for these students after they have recovered.

This support was mirrored by Opollo K’Opollo, chairman of the KUPPET Kilifi Teachers branch association, who emphasized that students who become unwell during exams frequently struggle to complete their evaluations in hospital wards.

Additionally, the chairman asked the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) board to put in place efficient measures to guarantee that students receive their national exams on time, particularly in light of the anticipated El-Nino rains in the nation.

The Kenya School Education Assessment (KPSEA) for Grade 6 students, the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE), and the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) are the three national tests scheduled for the current academic year. KCSE exams are set to commence on October 23 and conclude on November 24, with rehearsals beginning on October 19.
