The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has initiated the registration process for the KPSEA and KILEA 2024 exams.
Registration for students intending sit for KILEA and KPSEA assessments commenced on January 29 and is scheduled to conclude on March 29, 2024.
KNEC CEO David Njengere emphasised that school administrators should ensure the fresh registration of all Grade 6 learners for the assessment, following the procedure implemented in 2023.
Njengere highlighted that registration would be conducted through the KPSEA Registration portal, with a firm reminder that the KNEC Registration portal will close on March 29, 2024.
“Please note that the KNEC Registration portal shall be closed on March 29, 2024, and there will be no provision for late registration of candidates once the portal is closed,” He stated.
The KPSEA and KILEA examinations are slated to take place from October 28 to 31, 2024.
KILEA is designed for Intermediate Level learners prepared to transition to the Pre-vocational Level.
Njengere stressed that candidates presented for the assessment must be eligible learners who have been actively studying in their respective schools.
Njengere issued a warning, stating that the registration of fictitious candidates would be considered assessment malpractice.
He added that such actions could lead to sanctions, including the de-registration of the school as a KNEC examination center.
School administrators were urged to edit candidates’ biodata when necessary to ensure the accuracy of registration data for all learners.
The examination council boss clarified that the transfer of candidates is only permitted during the registration period.
KNEC specified that all eligible KPSEA candidates must be initially registered in the Grade 6 portal to receive an Assessment Number.
The Assessment number is a mandatory requirement for registration, and upon completion, the institution’s head must ensure the uploading of learners’ SBA scores for Grades 4 and 5.
