Education CS George Magoha bans revision of secondary school choices after KCPE exam

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha on Monday announced a change that will affect all Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exam candidates beginning October 2019.

Speaking in Nairobi, the CS banned the revision of secondary school choices after the KCPE exam starts.

In the past, the primary school pupils have been allowed to revise their choices after the KCPE results have been formally announced.

He mandated the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) to facilitate the transition and ensure all revisions are done by August 2, 2019.

PS Belio Kipsang further asked parents to guide their children in selecting the schools to avoid a need for revision of the choices.

KCPE, KCSE exam Preparedness for 2019

Prof. Magoha made the remarks as he met with officials at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) to discuss this year's exam preparedness schedule.

"Ahead of the examinations season in third term, the ministry through all field officers, will engage in a robust pre-monitoring exercise to sensitize all schools in the country against cheating in national examinations.

"Examination papers are safe and no leakage will be witnessed this year. Teachers must work harder and complete the syllabus," he outlined

Prof. Magoha took on the Ministry of Education in March 2019 after serving as the KNEC Chairman since 2016.

The 2019 national exams will be the first he oversees as Cabinet Secretary.
