Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) is a certificate awarded to students after completing the approved eight-year course in primary education in Kenya.
The examination is supervised by the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC), an examining body in Kenya under the Ministry of Education.
The same body also conducts and regulates the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE), a certificate awarded to students after completing secondary education.
KCPE and KCSE were both started in 1985 when the 8-4-4 system of education was introduced in Kenya.
The subjects examined include Maths, English, Swahili, Social Studies, Science and Religious Studies (Christian/Islamic/Hindu).
Social Studies includes a bit of Kenyan History, Civil education, current County system of government as well as all the Religious Studies.
The exam time runs from the second week of November and takes three days. According to the KCPE timetable, the first day of the exam week is a Monday and is set aside for rehearsals. The exam is then done on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Marking of written scripts including the Swahili Insha and the English Composition is done over the December holidays.
KCPE results are then announced by the Minister for Education shortly after Christmas (27th to 30th December).
