KCPE to be scrapped off in 2 years

The usual celebrations Kenyans are accustomed to are set to fade as the new system will not have national examinations but will emphasize on Continuous Assessment Tests.

Under the new system developed by the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development, the education cycle will not have students going through class one to form four but will rather have students go through grade 1 to 12.

The new system which has been christened ‘competency based system’, will have students go through three phases of school life; early year’s education (Nursery to grade 3), Middle School (Grade 4 to 9) and senior school (Grade 10 to 12)

It means that learners will study for two years in pre-primary, three years in lower primary, three years of upper primary, three years of junior secondary school and three years of senior school.

New subjects such as life skills, entrepreneurship, citizenship, financial literacy and physical education are set to be introduced. Students will also be given an opportunity to interact with optional subjects that they will study in high school early on at grade 4.

Early this year in April, the cabinet secretary for Education, Fred Matiangi, launched the pilot program for the new system in 470 schools country wide. Ten schools in each county were selected to pilot the program ahead of the launch in January 2018
