The Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) has made certain adjustments to their national examinations online registration platform.
After multiple complaints about unresponsive Knec servers that made registration nearly difficult, the improvements were implemented.
There were also concerns after Knec announced that, despite its system outage, it would not extend the registration deadline.
Only a few schools have been successful in registering their students. The registration period will end on May 14, 2022, according to Knec.
However, as a result of the modifications, schools would have a faster response time when entering data for students in preparation for the KCPE and KCSE tests in 2022.
Primary schools would not be able to choose schools for their students, according to Knec. This exercise, according to the examiner, will begin on May 16th when schools have successfully registered their students.
This means that KCPE candidates’ school choices are on hold until the learners’ registration information is entered and submitted by May 14, 2022.
Knec has disabled secondary school learners from entering some details for KCSE candidates registration in order for the system to run smoothly.
For KCPE and KCSE registration schools are required to key in the following details.
(1) Correct order of candidate’s names as they appear in the Birth Certificate;
(3) Year of birth;
(5) Subjects registered for, including the optional ones where applicable;
(6) Information on different categories of candidates with special needs (i.e., Blind, Low vision, Deaf and Physically challenged).
