2022 is expected to be a very abnormal year in the education calendar. Going by a circular produced by the ministry of education, students will have to cover four terms in one year instead of three terms as it happens in a normal year.
All this is happening as the government tries to cover the time that was lost during the COVID-19 pandemic which led to closing of schools for more than 8 months.
This means that parents and guardians will have to dig deeper in their pockets to finance the school fees for the four terms in 2022.
Third term commenced in earnest on 3rd January , 2022, and likely to end on March 4th, 2022 to pave way for the 2021 KCPE and KCSE exams.
The 2021 KCPE exam will start on 07/03/2022 and will end on 10/03/2022, after 4 days of the exercise. The KCSE candidates will sit for their 2021 exams beginning from 11/3/2022 to 01/04/2022
Here is the complete schedule for the 2021 – 2022 third term school term dates:
