In 1985 former Kenyan President Daniel arap Moi, introduced the 8-4-4 System of education, which adopted 8 years of primary education, 4 years of secondary education and 4 years of university education. With the introduction of the 8-4-4 system CPE became KCPE (Kenya Certificate of Primary Education) while KCE became the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE).

Since 1985, public education in Kenya has been based on an 8-4-4 system,[1][2] with eight years of primary education followed by four years of secondary school and four years of college or university.
