KNEC releases programme for junior school pilot exams

An examination invigilator assists a KPSEA candidate during a rehearsal two years ago. The same candidates will sit a pilot exam to prepare for the final one, KJSEA, next year before transiting to Senior School.

The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has released instructions and schedule for the 2024 Kenya Junior School Education Assessment (KJSEA) pilot exam.

KJSEA is set to take place from Monday, July 15 to Wednesday, July 17.

On Monday, pupils will take exams in English (Language), Composition, and Literacy Analysis. On Tuesday, they will have Mathematics, Creative Arts & Sports, and Pre-Technical Studies. Wednesday’s exams will include Integrated Science, Agriculture & Nutrition, and conclude with Kiswahili Lugha.

According to KNEC instructions, the time allocated for each paper is specified next to its name, with no additional time permitted except for Braille users, who receive an extra 30 minutes.

Also, the time allocated includes reading through the questions, unless otherwise stated by special paper instructions.

“The time allowed for each paper is indicated against the name of the paper and NO EXTRA TIME IS TO BE ALLOWED apart from learners using Braille who will be added 30 minutes. Time for reading through questions is part of the time shown on the question paper except where special paper instructions indicate differently,” wrote KNEC.

KJSEA serves as a foundational assessment for students transitioning from junior to senior secondary education. It aims to evaluate students’ understanding and mastery of junior school education concepts as they move into Senior School.

This will be the first KJSEA in the new Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).
