Education CS Fred Matiang’i on Monday officially released the KCSE and KCPE examination dates.

KCSE exams will start on 23 October with oral tests and the written exams on 6 to 29 November. KCPE will kick off on 1 to 2 November.

The CS also said that he has written to the IEBC asking them to set the date for the fresh polls a week before 17 October in order to give the students enough time to prepare for their examinations.

Matiang’i said that the polls would disrupt the 2017/18 Education calendar should the electoral body not consider the proposed date causing them to reschedule the exams.
