Some students in Eldoret West District of Uasin Gishu County may miss out on registration for this year’s national examinations due to delays in issuance of Birth Certificates.

The document is mandatory for KCPE and KCSE examination registration, but some parents who applied for their children’s documents early this year are yet to receive them.

Next Month

Some of the parents claimed they had been promised that they would receive the certificates within two weeks of application.

Registration for KCPE closed on March 20 while that of KCSE will close early next month.

The parents are demanding a faster process to ensure their children do not miss out on exam registration.

A spot-check by The Standard on Monday morning found parents crowded at the registrar’s offices checking whether their documents had been dispatched.

Unfortunately, most found their children’s documents were yet to be processed.


Some of the parents said they have been forced to re-apply following the delays.

Francis Idwasi, the District Registrar, however, assured parents who had applied for the documents in January that they would receive them by next week but challenged them to avoid the last minute rush in future by applying for the documents at least a year before the children are due for exam registration.
