Let the EXAMS Begin!

Kenya has two extremely important school examinations. One takes place after the eighth year of school.  This exam measures the learning through elementary school.  Upon satisfactory completion they receive a Certificate of Primary School Completion.  The performance on this examination determines whether a student's formal education ends at this time, or continues on to High School. It also determines which high school a student can attend as each school determines their "cut off" score.  The higher the grade on the exam, the more opportunities are open to you.

The second important school examination occurs after four years of high school.  This is the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education.  They must take examinations in at least seven subjects.  Their performance on this Examination opens or closes opportunities for further education. The competition in Kenya's Universities, Colleges and Technical Insitutes is very high.  Therefore performance on this examination is critical. 

The  Joseph Waweru Home School has students taking both the KCPE and the KCSE this year.  We wish them well and may all their diligent study of the past years bear fruit!  If you would l ike to wish them well, please send an email to dmuthua@gmail.com or antonderitu@yahoo.com for high school wishes, and perepets1@gmail.com or cathy2g2@yahoo.com for Primary School Exam Success wishes.
