KNEC Dispatch Choppers To Deliver KCPE, KPSEA Exam Papers In Garissa

KNEC Dispatch Choppers To Deliver KCPE, KPSEA Exam Papers In Garissa.

The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has dispatched two helicopters to Garissa County’s four sub-counties to distribute Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) examination papers.

Exam papers have to be flown to the affected districts due to impassable roads caused by recent flooding.

After witnessing the opening of the examination container, County Commissioner Boaz Cherutich told the press that helicopters will also be deployed to deliver test papers to sub-counties bordering Somalia that are prone to insecurity.

The subcounties affected are Balambala, Liboi, Fafi, Hulugho, and Bodhai.

Cherutich promised the centre managers, supervisors, and applicants that all 204 KCPE test centres and 260 KPSEA examination centres in the county will be protected during the examination time.

In Garissa, 8,994 candidates (5,239 males and 3,755 females) take the KPSEA, while 9,477 candidates (5,555 males and 3,897 females) take the KCPE.

Nationally, a total of 2.5 million candidates are sitting for their respective examinations: 1,244,188 (KCPE) and 1,287,597 (KPSEA).

On Monday, Standard Eight and Grade Six students will begin their national tests.

This month, more than three million students will take national exams.

More than 1.6 million students have registered for the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) exam in Grade 6.

On Friday, students participated in a rehearsal while teachers verified conformity with exam regulations.

Currently, primary schools will administer two exam portions to Standard 8 and Grade 6 students.

On Monday, Standard 8 students will take exams in mathematics, English language, and composition.

Monday will mark the beginning of mathematics and English tests for sixth graders.

President William Ruto wished Standard Eight and Grade Six students success on their upcoming national examinations, which will begin on Monday.

Ruto stated that it is time for them to display the efforts they have made over their years in school.

“You have worked hard for years, it is time for you to crown that hard work with a strong display of knowledge and character. This is your moment, do your best for your future. I wish you all the best in your Grade 6 (KPSEA), KCPE and KCSE examinations,” he tweeted.
