In circular dated 27th March, sent to school principals offering students for KCSE 2020 examinations, Dr. Mercy Karogo who is the CEO of KNEC, has indicated that guidelines on handling of Milestones 1 and 2 of Group IV practical subjects will be given when schools reopen.
“Consequently, the Kenya National Examination Council, KNEC, wishes to inform you that further guidelines on the handling of Milestones 1 and 2 of Group IV projects will be issued when schools reopen”, said Dr. Mercy Karogo.
Early this year through a circular sent to secondary school heads, KNEC had indicated that the online Portal for keying and uploading milestone one scores was to be accessible between 1st March to 31st March, 2020. While, scores for Milestone two were to be uploaded between June 15 and July 15, 2020.
The move to put off uploading of milestone one and two scores has been informed by the president Uhuru’s directive that ordered schools to be closed on 15th march 2020
A cloud of uncertainty still surrounds the exact date schools will reopen owing to the surging number of coronavirus cases in the country.
As at today Saturday, 28th, 2020, the government had confirmed 38 number of coronavirus cases with one fatality.
While speaking to the nation through a televised address, health CS Mutahi Kagwe said in the last 24 hours, the country had confirmed 7 new cases of coronavirus bringing the total number to 38.
“In the last 24 hours, a total of 81 samples from suspected cases have been analyzed. We have received confirmation of 7 people who have tested positive for coronavirus. 4 are Kenyans, 2 Congolese nationals and 1 Chinese national. This now brings the number to 38”, said Health CS Mutahi Kagwe.
