The Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) 2019 candidates and the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) candidates have been advised to verify their registration which will enable them to sit for the National exams.

Over the years candidates have been shocked on realizing that they were never registered to sit for the exams on the material day when the exams kick off.

The verification process is on since 18th February and is set to end on 28th February. The registration portal has since been closed following the set deadline to enable verification.

KCPE and KCSE candidates registered to sit for the 2019 National exam totaled to 1.78 million.

“We ask parents and candidates to confirm registration details of the 2019 KCPE and KCSE candidates by sending candidates’ index numbers to 20076 from February 16,” KNEC acting Chief Executive Officer Mercy Karogo informed.

Unregistered candidates or those who will find errors in their registration are advised to contact their head teacher or school principal where applicable.

“In case of any anomaly, please contact the head teacher or principal immediately before February 22,” Officer Karogo advised while maintaining that the deadline would not be extended so that parents and schools should act promptly.

The ended registration process took place between 2nd January and 15th February.

Candidates registered to sit for the KCPE exam totaled to 1,089,671 and will be spread out in 27,872 centers across the country.

KCSE Candidates registered for the 2019 KCSE totaled to 698,935 and are spread in 10,304 examination centers.

Officer Karogo also directed that primary and secondary school heads ensure candidates were allocated index numbers based on their admissions list.

“All candidates for KCPE and KCSE examinations will be issued with index numbers as per the school admission register, not class performance as was the case in previous years,” the guidelines signed by KNEC acting CEO stated.

The old indexing system was scrapped off for allegedly causing bias to students where they are judged as failures.

“We have had cases where candidates who have lower index numbers resign to fate and start to think that they cannot perform better in examinations,” Karogo stated.

The guidelines also require schools whose candidate capacity is between six and 15 to be hosted in established centers.

“The hosted school will retain its code during registration of candidates. Schools with less than five candidates are advised to register their candidates in another approved examination center,” the guidelines stated.

Students were also warned of double registration which the guidelines stated would be treated as malpractice.

KNEC guidelines also stated that only one private examination centers per sub-county would be allowed. The private candidates are to pay their examination fees directly to KNEC and deposit slips submitted to sub-county directors while the government will cater for the examination fees for all the other candidates.
