Class eight and Grade six candidates are set to start their national exams Monday morning.
Class 8 learners will sit for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) while Grade 6 learners will sit for the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA).
Both exams will begin Monday (today) 30th October and end on Wednesday, November 1.
There are 1,282,574 candidates set to sit the KPSEA assessments.
Candidates set to sit KCPE exams this year (2023) are 1,415, 315.
170,982 more candidates registered for KCPE this year compared to last year.
This may be attributed to this year’s KCPE being the last one as it marks the end of the 8-4-4 system in primary schools pushing learners who may have dropped out to take advantage of the last chance to sit for the exam.
On their social media platforms, President William Ruto and First Lady Rachel Ruto have wished all candidates success in their examination assuring candidates support.
