This is is part of the ministry’s radical measures to curb cheating during the 2016 national examinations and includes the reorganisation of school term dates, shortening of the examinations period and changing of the exam timetable.

While announcing the initiatives, Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i pointed out that term two which was to end on August 5 will be extended to August 12.

Matiang’i further explained that the extension will accommodate the third term period which is set to commence on August 29 and end on October 28 from standard on to seven and form one to form three.
