dc.description.abstractNational examinations in Kenya are said to be Kenya Certificate of Primary Education, which is a national examination done at the end of primary school study and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education which is the final national examination done at the end of the secondary school study. These national examinations can be traced back in 1985 when Kenya adopted the 8-4-4 education system. These series of the examinations are usually done around the month of November in every academic year for the finalist students both in primary schools and secondary schools. The examinations are set by a centralized government examination body under the name of Kenyan National Examination Council which is tasked by the objective of setting a standardized national examination at both primary and secondary level. The first KCSE examination was done in 1989 and same years as the last KACE examination. The KCSE comprised of a minimum of 10 subjects and this was believed to contribute to examination cheating due to the workload required by the students during the examination period. However these subjects were revised and reduced to 7 in 2006 in a bid to try and reduce the students’ burden and overload.
