The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has opened its portal for the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) assessments where learners will have a chance to choose preferred schools as they move through the 6-2-3-3 system.
The portal, which is also called Competency Based Assessment (CBA) involves procedures on how a parent will register, capture and check the scores of learners by a school selected.
A learner will be able to register for a school of choice and at the same time transfer from one institution to another at will.
Once a learner has been registered Upon a parent will be required to access the CBA portal through the KNEC website.

Transferring Schools for CBC Learners
One of main requirements for a parent to transfer a learner transferring to another school is to provide the assessment number. If not available, the assessment number can be searched using the learner’s previous school code or school name.

KNEC advised that in case a learner faces challenges with transfer process, he/she can contact the Sub County Director of Education.
The government made it possible for a parent or learner to exercise full authority by declining a school of no choice. This also involves steps in which a learner will still have to visit the CBA portal.
