The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has initiated the registration process for the 2024 Kenya Primary School Assessment (KPSEA) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams.
In a notice issued on Thursday, February 1, the council informed school heads that registration portals were now open.
Teachers have been directed to ensure that all eligible candidates complete their registrations by the deadline on March 29, 2024.
KNEC emphasized the importance of timely KCSE and KPSEA registration, urging teachers to avoid a last-minute rush.
The council explicitly stated that there would be no extensions beyond the specified deadline.
To facilitate registrations, the council has designated portals for each school level, accessible on the KNEC website.
“All examination centres are expected to log onto a platform for specific examination and enter the candidates’ details using the school registration password,” the council stated.
The announcement followed the release of the 2023 KPSEA results on January 19.
Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machagu previously directed teachers to permit students to join Junior Secondary Schools (JSS) ahead of the results.
The 2023 grade 6 pupils, under the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC), are the inaugural cohort to undergo the KPSEA examinations and proceed to grade 7.
In response to concerns about the credibility of the 2023 KCSE exam results, KNEC faced legal action from Operation Linda Jamii, a community-based organization.
The organization challenged the process used to tabulate the results, highlighting irregularities in the Oruba Boys High School results where all students scored a D, with a deviation of 1-2 points.
