Candidates in class eight and those in grade six have concluded their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) examinations.
No major incidents have been reported during the three-day exam period.
Various leaders including the President visited various examination centers from Monday to oversee the distribution of examination materials.
Education PS Belio Kipsang who supervised the collection of the last examination papers at Langata sub-county headquarters in Nairobi West Wednesday morning is expected to address the media at 11.30 am.
This is the last KCPE exam to be done in the country after 38 years of its implementation.
According to Dr. Kipsang, about 1.4 million learners registered for this year’s KCPE, the highest number in the history of the exam.
The class eight candidates wrote their last Social Studies and Religious Education paper this morning.
Another 1.2 million Grade Six learners sat the KPSEA exam.
At least 360,000 candidates took the KCPE examination for the first time in 1985, ushering in the 8-4-4 system.
