He said this year two sets of examinations will be done under 8-4-4 system and the 2-6-3-3-3.

March examinations will be the first of two separate sets to be administered this year as the country embraces reforms ahead of next year’s transition.

As per the revised education calendar, the 2021 KCPE exam will be done from March 7th -10th while KCSE will be done from March 11th – April 1st.

Knec data, however, shows that for the March exams, 2,056,719 candidates were registered. Of these are 1,225,693 who will sit KCPE and 831,026 enrolled for KCSE exams under the 2021 examinations.

The council said the number of candidates sitting KCPE has increased by 34, 085 compared to last year.

Additional 78,424 candidates have been registered to sit KCSE, according to KNEC data. Magoha said the March examinations will be moderated to factor in challenges occasioned by the Covid-19 pandemic that disrupted learning and caused reorganization of education calendar.

“We want our students to relax and cease expressing themselves in acts of atrocity for fear of the examinations. We are a considerate government and we will be as humane as possible,” Magoha said.

The Kenya Secondary School Heads Association and the Primary School Heads Association said preparations had started in earnest.
