National exams

All the two  national examinations  (KPSEA AND KCPE ) kicked off smoothly  in Kirinyaga County  while the KCSE  praticals continued in earnest .

As for the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment the county has a   total of 331 centers with the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education  has  327.

The  Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education has  a total of 162 Centres according to the County Education Director Of Education  Didacus Odhiambo .

In the KPSEA a total of 12,524 candidates began  their examinations across the county an examination that has created anxiety since it has heralded the Competency  Based Curriculum (CBC).

The KCPE examination has  13304 candidates just slightly over those  of the KPSEA while those siting for the KCSE are 39025.

The  weather has been cool since morning making the environment conducive to the  annual  practice .

By press time , the exams were still going on without any reported hitch while  Odhiambo has commended the candidates and wished them well for their good conduct.

The media could not be allowed into the  examination centers except at the periphery   to avoid any element of stealing the exam .
