The Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) are scheduled for November 28 and December 23, respectively, for the 2022 academic year.
The Grade Six examination will be held between November 28 and 30 2022, with 1.27 million candidates registered to take the first exam under the new curriculum, which will see them enter junior secondary schools.
At the same time, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) intends to create a data bank of interviewed teachers to make it easier to replace those who leave the service during the 2022–2023 fiscal year for secondary Schools
TSC listed approximately 219,311 unemployed secondary school teachers in mid-July 2022. These teachers had applied for only 4, 000 new secondary school openings, and only five candidates (teachers) were shortlisted for each opening.
The Board of Management would be expected to create a vacancy-specific merit list from the list of five candidates who were shortlisted and interviewed for each opening at every secondary school in the nation.
