The form four exams will officially begin on 02.12.2022 and end on 23.12.2022.
The education system in Kenya offers a thorough method of testing students’ knowledge, attitude, and skill sets against predetermined benchmarks. With the current 8-4-4 system being phased out, students in elementary school are assessed when they reach the eighth grade, and those in secondary school are assessed when they reach the fourth form.
Each year, the Kenya National Examination Council administers the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE). The KCPE examinations for the 2022 academic year will begin this month, and the KCSE examinations will begin the month after.
Grading Scheme to be Implemented
Math, English, and Kiswahili are the only three subjects that must be evaluated by the examination body; the other four subjects must include two sciences, a technical subject, and a humanity topic; or two humanities subjects, if one humanities subject performs better than the technical subject. An A(plain) is worth 12 points, a D is worth 5 points, and an E is for 1 point in this grading scale.
We anticipate the minimal entry grade to be the same in the future elections as it has been for the past four years, when students with C+ averages of more than 46 points have been admitted to institutions.
