Exam rehearsals to start on Thursday

Rehearsals for the 2023 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams  will start on Thursday, October 19, according to the Kenya National Examinations  Council (Knec). For Form 4 pupils who will be taking their national examinations from October 23  to November 24, these preparations are now in progress.

The Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and the Kenya Primary School  Education Assessment (KPSEA) rehearsal date is set for Friday, October 27,  according to a statement issued by Knec on Wednesday. The actual KCPE and KPSEA tests are scheduled to start on Monday, October 30,  and end on Wednesday, November 1.

About 1,700 officers will be sent out by Knec to supervise the exam administration. These officers will come from a variety of other educational institutions in addition  to Knec.

The 8-4-4 system of elementary school education will be completed with the KCPE exams in 2023. The number of candidates expected to take the national exams is above 3.5 million, with the KCPE applicants making up the largest portion of that total ever seen in the nation. Additionally, this year, 1.4 million pupils have enrolled to take the KCPE tests, while slightly under one million students will be taking the KCSE exams. 1.2 million candidates have also enrolled for the first KPSEA.

Basic Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang urged the officers to retain professionalism and ensure the successful and efficient administration of the assessments and examinations during a briefing conducted for the monitoring officials at the Knec headquarters. He underlined the need to inspire the applicants and demonstrate that passing these exams is possible.

The Principal Secretary also commended Knec for its excellent work, particularly during the previous academic year when the Council switched from conducting the customary two exams to an unprecedented five as the nation worked to restore stability to the academic calendar after the COVID-19 pandemic caused disruptions. Principal Secretaries from the Ministry of Education, Council members, and Knec’s Executive Management all attended the briefing.
