Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education K.C.S.E.


KCSE stands for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education, which is taken at the completion of Secondary Education.
The first KCSE exam was held in 1989 at the same time as the last Kenya Advanced Certificate of Education (KACE), which it replaced as the entrance requirement for Kenyan Universities.
Initially, KCSE was a minimum of 10 subjects. KCSE has since been reviewed twice, and the minimum number of subjects is now 7.

Group one Group two Group three Group four Group five
English, Swahili, Mathematics
Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Biological Science (taken by blind candidates)
History and government, Geography, Christian Religious Education, Islamic Religious Education and Hindu Religious Education
Home science, Art and Design, Agriculture, Computer Studies, Aviation
French, German, Arabic, Music, Business Studies
For grading, candidates must take all the three compulsory subjects, at least two sciences, one humanities and at least one practical or technical subject

The KCSE examinations are taken under very strict supervision from invigilators to avoid cheating and run for a period of about one month. Cheating in these examinations attracts severe penalties from the Kenya National Examinations Council and students caught cheating get their grades cancelled.

Examination results are announced to the public by the Cabinet Secretary for Education and the top 100 students and schools are released to the media the same day of the announcement. School rankings are divided into the top 100 private schools, public schools and provincial schools.

The grading of the examination is as thus:


For example, in 2006, a mean grade of A corresponded with 76 and upwards percentage points, while in 2007 it changed to 81 and upwards points. However, generally, the grading system is as follows:

 

Percent Grade Points
80-100 A 12
75-79 A- 11
70-74 B+ 10
65-69 B 9
60-64 B- 8
55-59 C+ 7
50-54 C 6
45-49 C- 5
40-44 D+ 4
35-39 D 3
30-34 D- 2
0-29 E 1

The entrance to public and private universities and the pass mark is grade C+. Students who attain a lower mark than C+ join other tertiary institutions for non-degree courses. Over time, stringent measures have been taken by the government to ensure and sustain the credibility of the KCSE examination.

However, there have been instances of breaches of these measures leading to examination vices such as leakage to some selected students who if undetected end up scoring high grades. In detected cases, such students have been punished by having their results cancelled and examination officials who participated in the vice charged in a court of law

Matiang'i assures KCSE marking will be credible


Education Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang'i has assured that the marking of the ongoing secondary school national examinations will be under tight scrutiny. Speaking in Nyeri town during the opening of exam containers, the CS said military precision will be put in place to ensure
credible results are delivered at the end of the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exams.

The exams have been conducted using a new system introduced by Dr Matiang'i to curb exam cheating which has been witnessed in past examinations.

The CS further said that no cheating has taken place so far during the ongoing exams maintaining that the remaining papers will be done under heavy supervision. The 2016 exam has not leaked and will not leak, he said. He said that his ministry will continue to work with the Ministry of Interior and that of Information Communication and Technology to supervise the marking of the exams.

A record 577,253 students will sit their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations that starts Monday.

This is the highest number of KCSE examination candidates recorded since the tests were first administered in 1989. The Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) released information showing that 54,383 more candidates were registered in 2016 compared to 2015. The candidates begin the examinations with a mathematics paper. Other exams to be taken during the week are English, Chemistry, Kiswahili, Home Science, Art and Design and Building Construction.

How To Register For KCSE Examinations As A Private Candidate In Kenya


Kenya National Examination Council has enabled many Kenyans to have a second chance in obtaining their O level certificate. The KNEC examination body in Kenya provide a private candidate registration avenue in Kenya for those who missed their chance in KCSE for various reasons.

Some of people who register as private candidates for KCSE in Kenya include: those who failed their KCSE exam in Kenya, and wish to try again without having to attend classes and wear uniforms, or those who are older and had missed a chance in their youth in Kenya, or those due to unforeseen circumstances, especially due to sickness or accidents in Kenya, were unable to sit their KCSE examinations in Kenya.

Requirements Needed by KNEC for KCSE Private Candidate Registration in Kenya


The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has put into place guidelines to make sure that only those qualified can sit for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examination in Kenya which ensures the KCSE results in Kenya will not be substandard.

The KNEC requirements during registration for KCSE examinations in Kenya include; having a KCPE certificate in Kenya, birth certificate, two passport photos, time elapsed should be more than three years since they sat for their KCPE in Kenya and for a repeater it should be less than two years since their last KNEC sitting and a prospective candidate should produce a school leaving certificate in Kenya of the last school attended within Kenya.

A confirmation of the candidate from the Head of the school where the KCSE candidate in Kenya will sit for the KCSE practical examination paper in Kenya should be produced by the candidate, and they should have sat and passed a qualifying test administered by KNEC in Kenya.

A KCSE private candidate in Kenya would be expected to register for a minimum of 7 papers and a maximum of 9 papers in Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examinations in Kenya. To register for KCSE privately in Kenya attract charges ranging from Ksh. 3,200 for the seven papers and Ksh 3,600 for the nine papers in KCSE exams in Kenya.

Kenya National Examination Council in collaboration with universities in Kenya like

University of Nairobi,

Moi University,

Kenyatta University,

Maseno University,

Egerton University,

Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology and

Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology

together with selected colleges in Kenya has provided an avenue where KCSE candidates in Kenya can improve their grades in particular KCSE subjects even after completion of the O level certificate, raising their score to the minimum average entry requirements for admission to university level in Kenya.

The KCSE candidate wishing to boost KCSE subject scores in Kenya will be allowed to sit for a minimum of one paper for a bridging registration charge in Kenya of Ksh 2,000 for one paper while an extra KCSE subject will attract a fee of Ksh 200 per paper with another Ksh 100 bng registration charge for a KCSE practical paper.

Where to Register for KCSE examinations with KNEC as a Private Candidate in Kenya


KCSE Private candidates are registered in the District Education Offices in Kenya by the KNEC Examination Council appointed agents in Kenya in March of every year. The private KCSE candidates registration timeline in Kenya given by Kenya National Examination Council is from March 1st to march 30th every year, where after registration will not be allowed in case a candidate has not fulfilled the requirements given, regardless if one has paid the KCSE registration fees for examinations in Kenya

Supervising Kcse Exams


Supervision and invigilation of and exams is an exercise performed to curb cases of would be cheating in the exams. The supervisors are the returning officers at the examination centers and are responsible for the proper conduct of the examination in their examination centers. They also brief the invigilators who in turn brief the candidates on the rules governing the conduct of the examination as issued by the Kenya national exam council (KNEC) It is a rigorous exercise that even involves frisking the candidates before they sit for any of the exams.

This practice reduces instances of impersonation although this is not a major issue at the present time. Dear student, say no to fake exam papers. If you are caught, that will be the end of the road for you, the penalty by KNEC for those found cheating would be something like being banned from sitting the examination for four years or altogether. Remember your teachers have prepared you for four solid years to sit this exam.

Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) guidelines released for this years' examinations reveal that only Government-employed teachers will be recruited as supervisors. The document says possible candidates for consideration must be registered teachers employed by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC). 

With a minimum qualification of diploma in Education or Approved Teacher Status (ATS) grade or higher," said Knec acting chief executive officer Mercy Karogo. And the offer has been extended to public service employees in job group K and above. However, they must have served as teachers and successfully supervised examinations in the past.

Teaching experience The bar has also been raised for P1 teachers, who Knec says must have been invigilators before. "P1 teachers with five years' teaching experience, three years of which he or she must have participated in the invigilation of Knec examinations... may be considered for supervision duties, read the guidelines.

Higher grade For invigilators, Knec wants teachers with P1 grade or higher qualifications, also registered and working with TSC. "They must have teaching experience of one year or more and be persons of integrity," says KNEC. The number of invigilators and supervisors to be recruited was not immediately clear.

The Kenya National Examinations Council is on record saying the school ranking system is a recipe for unhealthy competition. The lot of candidates are the first beneficiaries of the free tuition fee for secondary students. They, however, suffered delayed opening of schools due to post-election violence. Most affected schools were in Rift Valley and Nyanza provinces, which experienced widespread violence with some schools being burnt.
