Up to Five Exams To Be Administered In 9 Weeks

In the second term, which began this week, teachers in primary schools will administer more than four exams.

Pressure is mounting on both teachers and students as they return for the shortest second term.

Students in the Competency-Based Curriculum and 8-4-4 should take nearly three exams in nine weeks.

Grades 3, 4, and 5 students will be assessed beginning July 18, according to a timetable released by the Kenya National Examinations Council.

From July 18 to August 15, schools will be able to access Grade 4, 5, and 6 practical subjects, which should be uploaded by September 16, according to the timetable.

Agriculture, art and craft, music and social studies, home science, physical and health education, and science and technology will be assessed.

Teachers will be expected to administer written tests to Grade 6 students from August 29 to September 9 two weeks after completing this.

This will be the final assessment given to Grade 6 students before the November Kenya Primary School Education Assessment.

At the same time, students in the 8-4-4 system should have completed three exams by September 17.

In the third term, Grade 3 students will take written tests in mathematics and English activities, according to the schedule.

From October 30 to November 11, special needs education at the foundation level will be tested in activities of daily living, communication, and pre-literacy skills.

Learners at the intermediate level in SNE will also be assessed at the same time, with results uploaded by November 24, according to the timetable.

Other assessments must be submitted by November 28 in order for KPSEA to run smoothly.

During the same time period, students in Grades 4 and 5 will take written exams in all 12 subjects.

Mathematics, English, Kiswahili, agriculture, home science, Kenyan sign language, science, and technology are among them.

Physical and health education, social studies, art and craft, and Christian/Islamic/Hindu religious education are among the others.

The timetable, which was signed by KNEC CEO David Njengere, also stated that the assessments should be downloaded as soon as they appear on the portal.

“Assessment tools with coloured images should be printed in colour or loaded on the digital devices available in school,” Njengere said.

Students will then be expected to answer the questions on separate answer sheets, such as exercise books, according to him.

A sample of KPSEA answer sheets obtained by the Star revealed that there are multiple choices.

Students must enter the school code number, assessment number, candidate name, and school.


They are instructed to cross one of the four multiple-choice options to indicate the answer.

The CBC pioneer cohort, which is currently in Grade 6, is expected to enter junior secondary school next year.

According to the ministry, 2.57 million students will enroll in Grade 7 and Form 1 during the January double intake.
