The 2022 Form Four national exams began on Friday across the country, with 884,263 candidates eligible to write the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) tests.
As was the case with the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations, which ended on Wednesday, the exams will be tightly monitored by the Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) and security agencies to ward off malpractices.
The candidates will start with English functional skills testing at 8am and later write English comprehension, literary appreciation and grammar tests in the afternoon.
The examinations will run until December 23. The marking for the KCSE will begin on January 2, 2023, and be completed on January 20, before schools open on January 23.
Here is a round-up of how the day one of the examinations kicked off.
