Chief Executive Officer of the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC), David Njeng’ere, has ordered all elementary schools to download and administer Competence Based Curriculum (CBC) examinations by September 9.
This came about after KNEC posted the exam papers online.
After the students have completed their exams, schools will have one week to publish the results to the platform, according to Njeng’ere.
He also confirmed that students in Grade Six have finished their projects and practicals for the national assessment.
He explained that while students’ knowledge of marionette-making was tested in the Art and Crafts component, their sewing abilities were evaluated in the Home Science section. While creating a model of the circulatory system in science and technology, students were required to perform a folk song in music.
Students had to swim and crawl, skip a rope, and catch a ball with both hands during physical education.
However, students will take Kiswahili, English, mathematics, home science, agriculture, science, and technology as well as creative arts (art, craft, and music) as well as moral and life skills as well as physical and health education in the junior secondary entry exams.
The social studies (citizenship, geography, and history) and foreign languages (French, German, Chinese, and Arabic) are additional alternatives.
