Kajiado County is witnessing a remarkable turnout of 12,872 candidates who are gearing up for their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams this year. The students have converged across 173 exam centers spread throughout this beautiful Kenyan county.
With the official commencement of the KCSE exams, the Kajiado County Commissioner, Jude Wasonga, expressed optimism about the smooth administration of these crucial assessments. He mentioned that the weather, which can sometimes be unpredictable, has not posed any significant challenges so far during the administration of both KCPE and KPSEA exams. He’s hoping that this favorable weather pattern continues throughout the KCSE exam period.
The county administration is well-prepared for any unforeseen circumstances that may arise due to changes in weather patterns, especially as the rainy season intensifies. While there might be some roads in the county that could pose transportation challenges for the distribution of the exams, every possible measure has been put in place to ensure the seamless conduction of the exams throughout this period.
In an effort to prioritize accessibility and fairness, the authorities are giving the highest preference to centers that are farther away and might encounter transportation difficulties during the collection of exam materials, ensuring they reach their destinations promptly.
Commissioner Wasonga took a moment to stress the importance of gender equality in education. He urged parents not to discriminate against their children, emphasizing that both girls and boys should have equal opportunities to pursue their education.
In the Loitoktok Sub County, an impressive 2,361 candidates hailing from 29 secondary schools are currently sitting for their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations. Notably, just last week, 5,906 grade six candidates completed their Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) from 130 primary schools, while 6,551 candidates from 115 primary schools undertook their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) assessments.
This examination season in Kajiado County is a testament to the dedication and commitment of both students and educators, as they collectively strive for excellence in the field of education. It is an important time for these young minds as they embark on their academic journeys, and we wish them all the success in the world as they sit for their KCSE exams.
