KNEC Boss Dr. Mercy Karogo. The Council has suspended ECDE and SNE examinations that were to be done in April, 2020.

The Kenya National Examinations Council, Knec, has postponed the April 2020 Proficiency, Certificate and Diploma Examinations indefinitely. This following the directive by the Government for all learning institutions to close down to contain the spread of the current COVID-19 pandemic in the Country.

“The Kenya National Examinations Council wishes to inform you that the 2020 ECDE (Proficiency, Certificate and Diploma) Examinations scheduled to take place between 12th and 16th April, 2020 and the Diploma in Special Needs (SNE) Examination scheduled to be done between 12th and 23rd April, 2020 have been postponed until further notice,” reads a memo by Dr. Mercy Karogo who is the Knec Chief Executive Officer.

The order to suspend these examinations follows another one that postponed Business and Technical theory examinations that were scheduled to start on Monday March 23, 2020.

In the latest circular sent to all Sub County Directors of Education and Principals of Colleges offering 2020 ECDE and SNE Examinations, the Council Boss says new examination dates will be announced once colleges re-open. “The Kenya National Examinations Council shall review the directive from time to time and inform you of the new examination dates once colleges re-open. Kindly bring this information to the attention of all candidates registered for the 2020 ECDE and SNE examinations,” she adds.

Uncertainty continues to reign supreme as to when normalcy will ensue as the Government puts up a spirited fight against the lethal Coronavirus Disease.

The 2020 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education, KCSE,  has also been marginally affected with Knec postponing the uploading of the 2020 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) project marks for Group IV subjects. Knec had earlier set the deadline for uploading the projects’ scores and pictorial evidence for Milestone one to be 31st of March, 2020 while uploading of data for Milestone two would have been done between 15th June to 15th July, 2020. But, these deadlines now remain suspended until further notice.
