No more grades for exam failures

The Kenya National Examinations Council said Kenyans’ desire for certificates was the reason students sat for examinations when they cannot answer the question asked.

“Candidates are just keen to get the certificate showing they completed secondary education,” said Chief Executive Joseph Kivilu on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Education Cabinet Secretary Jacob Kaimenyi told the exam council to set thresholds of marks below which candidates shall not be graded in future.

“During last year’s exam, some candidates scribbled illegible responses, others replicated questions and others wrote vulgar statements,” said Prof Kaimenyi.

In the exam, 5,636 candidates scored E while in 2013, 7,042 scored E.

About 70,677 candidates scored C-, 76,198 scored D+, 73,501 got D and 47,716 got D-.
