Here are the Knec guidelines on how to handle the 2020 KCSE group IV subjects

The Kenya National Examinations Council, knec, has given fresh guidelines on how the 2020 KCSE project based subjects are to be handled. This a follow up to an earlier circular from the council to schools immediately after closure due to the covid 19 outbreak in the country. Via a circular dated March 27, the council had promised to give further guidelines on the handling of Mile stones 1 and 2 for group IV subjects; when schools reopen.

Group IV subjects which have a project component are: Art and Design (442/3), Agriculture (443/3), Wood Work (444/2), Metal Work (445/2), Building Construction (446/2) and Computer Studies (451/3).

But, with schools still closed and some of the projects having reached the final phase (harvesting/ final stage for agriculture projects), the council has now directed schools to capture and upload the data.

“Take photographic evidence of the candidates’ projects (in .gif or .jpeg formats; these two are photograph formats obtained by using a digital Camera) for their (2020 KCSE students taking Agriculture) records and dispose of the project by July 15, 2020.” reads a circular by knec boss Dr Mercy Karogo that is dated June 22, 2020.

“Upload the pictorial evidence together with the scores awarded onto the portal (knec portal) when new guidelines are issued after the schools reopen,” she adds.

The has at the same time promised to issue guidelines for other subjects. Schools are set for reopening in September; with candidate classes expected to be given first priority.
