The Kenya National Examinations Council, KNEC, has issued an important circular on handling of candidates for 2020 KCPE and KCSE Exams.
This comes in the back drop of information that there are some KCPE and KCSE Schools that were closed down as a result of hardships arising from the effects of COVID 19 pandemic. Some of these schools had registered candidates for the 2020 KCPE and KCSE examinations.
Knec says, candidates who have been affected should not miss the all important tests but can enroll at any public schools within their localities.
“The council wishes to inform you that candidates from such schools should be hosted in a public school/institution identified within the Sub County.” Says Knec Boss Dr. Mercy G. Karogo.
Dr. Karogo says information on the closed examination centres and identified host school/institution should reach KNEC by 15th February, 2021.
The registration of the 2020 KCPE and KCSE candidates ended on 15th February 2020 and the Kenya National Examinations Council is now preparing for the administration of the examinations.
All KCSE private candidates are expected to sit for their theory and practical examination papers in one centre.
KCPE and KCSE centres with less than fifteen (15) candidates should be hosted in approved KNEC examination centres as KNEC will not allocate a supervisor to these centres.
