For learners with severe conditions in the categories of deaf, blind, severe cerebral palsy, severe autism, intellectual disabilities, and multiple disabilities exams are stage-based.

Further, Njengere highlighted the qualifications needed for the learners to be able to sit for the KILEA.

Learners should be registered and assigned a number by KNEC. They should have undertaken School-Based Assessment for the intermediate level and outcomes of at least one SBA uploaded on to the KNEC portal,” stated Njengere.

Teachers will be expected to administer the assessment within the KILEA timetable provided by KNEC as the learner's scores and work are to be uploaded to the portal.

KNEC also insisted that it will not provide materials for task performance instead teachers should improvise.

Materials required for the performance of the tasks should be obtained from the immediate school environment or improvised as much as possible,” KNEC directed.
