KNEC Reveals Dates for Registration of Grade 6 Learners for KPSEA exams
The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has revealed the dates when the registration of the 2023 national examinations under the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).
KNEC revealed through a statement that the assessment for the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) and the Kenya Intermediate Level Education Assessment (KILEA) would start on the 3rd of March, 2023.
In addition, the examination council revealed that the deadline for the registration exercise has been set for the 3rd of April, 2023. Further, KNEC instructed all heads of schools who shall present learners for the 2023 KILEA and KPSEA to ensure that they are all registered.
The Examiner also issued directives on how the examinations will be done saying that the examinations will be hosted in the current KCPE centres with 30 candidates and above.
The Council also instructed assessment centres that have less than 30 candidates will be hosted in centres identified by Sub-County Directors. This is in line with the guidelines that KNEC issued.
“This means that institutions with a combined candidature of thirty and above for both the KPSEA and KCPE examination will therefore be allowed for conducting the KPSEA on their premises.
“Special schools are exempted from this rule,” stated the Examination Council.
KNEC also issued a warning against the registration of ghost learners. The Council said that the registration of learners who were not transitioning to grade six was an infringement of the issued guidelines.
“Registration of ghost learners attracts sanctions, including de-registration of the school as a KNEC assessment centre,” warned KNEC.
Heads of institutions were directed to log into the KNEC portal under the KPSEA and enter the details of their assessment centre login information.
“Heads of Institutions should ensure accuracy of the learner’s assessment number, name as it appears on the birth certificate, and gender,” stated KNEC.
Earlier on the 13th of February 2023, KNEC clarified the registration of the 2023 KCPE and KCSE examinations where they implored all candidates to fill in the order of their names as documented in their birth certificates and indicate the correct gender to avoid confusion and a mix-up of the details.
