Ministry of Education Has Extended The KCSE And KCPE Registration Deadline

The government has extended the registration of KCPE, KCSE candidates by two weeks.

“This is to give schools an opportunity to ensure that all candidates are registered, no child is left behind in the field of education,” Magoha said in a statement on Monday.

The deadline for the final registration is August 14, 2021. The registration process was scheduled to close on July 31, 2021.

Magoha said that the principals should ensure that all genuine candidates are registered for the examination within the last two weeks.

“Any candidate who fails to register for the 2021 examination to be held in March 2022 will be allowed to appear for the examination in December 2022 only,” he added.

But he said that late registration will not be allowed.

The registration deadline will be followed with the verification of the registration details of the candidates as entered in the 2021 KCPE and KCSE Nominal Rolls between August 16 and 27, 2021.

Magoha said that nominal rolls, duly signed, and medical reports for candidates with special needs should be submitted to deputy county education directors along with other registration documents.

Preparation for the 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examinations began with the registration of candidates starting from June 2, 2021.

As of July 31, 2021, a total of 1,218,892 candidates across 28,248 centers and 824,392 candidates across 10,384 centers had registered for the KCPE and KCSE examinations respectively.

In 2020, 1,191,616 and 752,602 candidates had registered for KCPE and KCSE respectively.

This represents an increase of 2.29 per cent and 9.54 per cent in candidature in 2021 KCPE and KCSE respectively as compared to 2020.

The phenomenal growth in KCSE candidature is attributed to the success of the government’s 100% transition policy that began in 2018.

However, since the practice closed on July 31, 2021, several headmasters and principals have requested KNEC to grant more time to mop up all candidates who cannot register.
