Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha says this year’s KCSE and KCPE exams are likely to be pushed to April 2021
He, however, said this will only be actualized if schools re-open by September this year.
Appearing before the Senate Ad Hoc Committee on COVID-19 Thursday, Prof. Magoha, pointed out that there is a possibility that schools might not reopen in September as intended due to the rising number of coronavirus cases.
He further added that the ministry could merge the 2020 exams with those scheduled for 2021 if the government is unable to reopen schools for the administration of the exams by April.
Senators led by the Committee Chairman and Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja advised the ministry to consider writing off the current academic year in light of COVID-19 disruptions.
