Nairobi - Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has maintained that no changes will be made to the national examinations timetable as requested by teachers.
Teachers had requested KNEC to revise the exams timetable to give them more time to prepare candidates for exams because much was lost during the strike.
“It is a bit difficult to adjust and we are not planning to do that.
“Teachers can take extra time at night, in the morning, and over the weekends to catch up because if we were to change slightly it will affect a lot of processes of the examinations,” KNEC CEO, Joseph Kivilu said.
Close to 525,000 candidates are expected to sit for Kenya Certificate for Secondary Education exams which start next week Monday and end on 5th November.
On the other hand, Kenya Certificate of Primary Education exams will kick off 10th November, with more than 937,000 candidates expected to sit for the exams.
