Candidates Won’t Sit Exams In Hospitals Under CBC.Expectant mothers and hospitalized candidates will not be required to take exams in health facilities under the new education system.Fatma Chege, PS for Curriculum Reforms noted that early childhood reforms and continuous assessments will enable an assessment under the Competency-Based Curriculum.At the Kenya Secondary School Heads Association meeting, Chege urged principals to be a part of the transition.This approach differs from the previous 8-4-4 system, in which students sat KCPE and KCSE exams in hospital because they did not want to sit exams later.“By the time, the child is transitioning from primary to junior secondary, that learner will have been assessed several times,“ Chege said.She claims that the continuous assessments given from Grade 1 to Grade 6 will be sufficient to determine a student’s ability.“By the time, they’re finishing Grade 6, they will have accumulated around 60 per cent of an expected 100 per cent,” Chege said.According to her, the national assessment will allow teachers and the exam council to evaluate student performance.She emphasized that CBC’s goal is to dispel the myth that national exams are life-or-death tests.“The pressure to sit exams after eight years has been eased out. You find girls in the ward, giving birth, and an exam is waiting for them,” she said.Education CS George Magoha previously stated that the ministry consults with the hospital before administering exams.Chege stated that the department has already inducted varsity bosses in the CBC, beginning with primary and secondary schools and progressing to institutions of higher learning.Universities that have not yet experienced CBC have already received curriculum reform training.She urged universities to collaborate with the curriculum developer, particularly in research, in order to obtain more information about the reforms.The ministry has implemented several policies in preparation for junior secondary school, which begins next year.10,000 classrooms will be built to address infrastructure issues.According to the Education Ministry, the first phase was completed at 99 percent in April.The second phase of construction will begin in May and will be completed by July.The curriculum’s teacher training is at the junior secondary school level.The training of 60,000 JSS teachers began on Monday and will conclude on May 13.Students have three weeks to register for the three national exams that will be given throughout the rest of the year.Grade 6 students are being registered to take the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment, which will allow them to progress to junior high school.ALSO READ:In January, 1.5 million students will graduate from Grade 6 to junior secondary school under the new CBC.Candidates Won’t Sit Exams In Hospitals Under CBC
