Knec CBC reports update . The Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) has decided to extend the duration for schools to input learners’ assessment scores on its online platform.
Initially, schools were given until the 26th of October to upload the scores, but as of the deadline,
majority of schools had not completed the submission process.
Furthermore, technical issues with the platform were reported a few days ago, resulting in difficulties in uploading scores.
Teachers had raised concerns about these issues, leading to corrections made by Knec.
Consequently, in response to these challenges, the Council has extended the deadline to enable the remaining schools to finish uploading their scores.
The assessment process for Grade 3, 4, 5, and 7 learners involved theory exams,
with the learners completing their projects and practicals in the second term between 6th June and 10th August.
