Thursday, June 18, 2020 – Education CS Prof George Magoha has announced that candidates preparing for the 2020 Kenya Certificate for Secondary Education (KCSE) and Kenya Certificate for Primary Education (KCPE) examinations will probably be assessed in April 2021.
However, Prof Magoha said that the Ministry could merge the 2020 exams with those scheduled for 2021 if the Government is unable to reopen schools by April.
Speaking while appearing before the Senate Ad hoc team on COVID19 on Thursday, Prof Magoha said that the Government is currently monitoring and weighing out options whether it will be possible to allow learners to resume by September.
This is after Senators led by the Committee Chairman and Nairobi Senator, Johnson Sakaja, suggested that the Ministry should consider writing off the current academic year that has been disrupted by the coronavirus.
All learning institutions were closed indefinitely in March when the first case of Covid19 was recorded in the country.
So far, Kenya has recorded over 4,000 positive cases with schools and colleges being used as isolation facilities for the Covid19 patients.
