Kenya Education System Faces Major Changes

Following four years of study, secondary school students are assessed and evaluated using the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE), a national exam that is administered every year.

Examiners who have received training from Knec administer and grade the Kcse, and afterward, analyze the data and inform candidates of the results.

The KCSE grading system will be updated as of Saturday, August 5, 2023, according to an article in The Standard daily.

In accordance with the report of the education task force, the kcse grading system will include two compulsory subjects and the best performing five elective topics, for a total of seven subjects.

Compared to the current system, which grades candidates using five required subjects and two electives, the new grading scheme will be more rigorous.
