Class 8 and grade 6 learners will today sit for their KNEC examinations days after they took part in their rehearsals on Monday 25th.
The 3-day long assessment will see the learners sit for 5 exams before the KCPE candidates can proceed to secondary school in line with the 8-4-4 system whereas KPSEA candidates will proceed to junior secondary schools in line with the CBC education system.
According to the ministry of education under CS Machogu’s leadership, there are two batches of class 8 students expected to sit for their KCPE examinations before the full transition to the CBC education system which is still under review.
In statements previously made by Kenya’s head of state William Ruto and his deputy Gachagua, hinted that they don’t intend to scrap off the CBC system but instead will take time to examine and improve it.
In a recent report, a CBC task force that was appointed by the government to review the education system has called on the government to adopt a new curriculum system before fully transitioning to CBC.
