KNEC Releases New Examination Timetable, Here Are The New Dates
One of the major determinants of a candidate’s performance in their national examinations is the Kenya National Examination Council, KNEC, KCSE examination timeline. It provides an exhaustive schedule of the precise time and date that each paper is due.
For Milestones 1 and 2, which are due on July 31 and October 31, respectively, all Kenyan schools are now in the process of reporting their students’ grades for each subject.
For the first exam under the new curriculum, which will allow them to enroll in junior secondary schools, the Grade 6 examination will be place between November 28 and 30, 2022, with 1.27 million candidates registering to take it.
On FRIDAY, 02/12/2022, all Candidates will take their first theory paper, according to the KNEC schedule that was just released. Then the last exam day is FRIDAY, DECEMBER 23, 2022.
At precisely 8:00 am, a list of every exam paper from the first session will be accessible. The examination papers for the second session will begin at the times listed on the schedule. Unless otherwise stated in specific paper instructions, the time given for reading through questions is included in that period.
All teachers are responsible for ensuring that the applicants have read and are following these guidelines. The consequences of misconduct or irregularities during exams should be made clear to all candidates.
Prepare for the search outside the test room and take a seat at your desk or table 15 minutes before the individual paper examination begins. According to the schedule, the first session will begin at 8:00 am, and the second session will immediately follow.
A candidate will be expected to give the Supervisor a valid explanation if they are running late, which is quite rare. A candidate will only ever be granted a paper in severe circumstances if they are more than 30 minutes late.
All schools were ordered to close on Tuesday, August 2, 2022, by Prof. George Magoha, Cabinet Secretary for Education, in order to be ready for the impending general election on August 9.
“The Country is scheduled to conduct the general election on the 9th of August 2022. I hereby convey the Government’s decision on the immediate closure of all basic learning institutions with effect from Tuesday 2nd August 2022, until Wednesday 10th August 2022 to ensure that preparations and conduct of the upcoming election are carried out seamlessly,” stated Magoha.
“We may have to sit down as stakeholders and see whether it will be fair to examine the children if they will have lost a considerable amount of time, I pray that that does not happen, these children have suffered enough,” Magoha said.
Again in a press statement on Wednesday, Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha said that the changes have been occasioned by an expected delay in the vote tallying process.
“On 1st August 2022, I ordered the early closure of all Basic Education Institutions to allow for adequate preparation and conduct of the General Elections. We indicated that reopening would be on the 11th of August 2022,” Magoha’s statement read in part.
