Registration for the 2022 national examinations and assessment begins today, April 27th and ends on May 14th 2022.
The Ministry of Education has outlined guidelines for registration of Grade Six, Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE), and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams.
School heads are therefore required to ensure all registered candidates are genuine pupils and students of their respective schools, failure to which the school risks de-registration.
Kenya National Examination Council, CEO David Njeng’ere said the registration of any other persons will be treated as an examination malpractice, which attracts sanctions against an examination center, including de-registration of the school.
Schools with less than five candidates will not be allowed to register. Instead, Sub County Education Directors (SCDE) will identify examination centers where the candidates will be registered and sit their exams.
Similarly, schools with less than 30 candidates will be hosted as per the set guidelines on hosting of examination centers.
School heads are also required to accurately capture the candidates’ details as per the KNEC guidelines and are also required to submit the registration documents to the SCDEs by May 20th.
The Ministry also says it will not allow late registration of candidates, as this year’s national exams are scheduled for November.
