The teachers also cited limited preparation time for the learners due to the compressed school term.

The teachers also expressed concern over lack of familiarity with cut-throat examinations as the learners went through a curriculum whose assessments were school-based and not rigorous.

Also emerging is the anxiety and transition uncertainty of the Grade Six learners which teachers and parents said hampered preparations for candidates for the tests.

This year, 1,244,188 candidates will sit Kenya Certificate for Primary Education (KCPE) exams; 1,287,597 will write Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) exams while 884,263 candidates will sit KCSE exams. But it is the concerns over preparations of Grade six candidates that caught the attention of teachers and parents on rehearsal day.
