The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) opened its portal for the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) assessments where learners will have a chance to choose preferred schools as they move through the 6-2-3-3 system.
The portal, dubbed Competency Based Assessment (CBA) entails procedures on how a parent will register, capture and check the scores of learners by a school selected.
A learner will be able to register for a school of choice and at the same time transfer from one institution to another at will.
Upon registration of a learner, a parent will be required to access the CBA portal through the KNEC website.
