The council said the number of candidates sitting KCPE has increased by 34,085 compared to last year.
Additional 78,424 candidates have been registered to sit KCSE, according to KNEC data.
Last week Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha led a team from the Ministry of Education and the Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) on a visit to the UK where the tests are being printed.
Magoha said the March examinations will be moderated to factor in challenges occasioned by the Covid-19 pandemic that disrupted learning and caused reorganisation of education calendar.
“We want our students to relax and cease expressing themselves in acts of atrocity for fear of the examinations. We are a considerate government and we will be as humane as possible,” Magoha said.
The Kenya Secondary School Heads Association and the Primary School Heads Association said preparations had started in earnest.
