KCPE candidate in Murang’a misses marks

A KCPE candidate from a Murang’a primary school suffered a blow after he missed his marks in the recently released results.

Martin Njau who was a candidate at has been visiting in the school with hope to get his results since Tuesday when the Cabinet Secretary for Education, Dr. Fred Matiang’i released this year’s results.

Njau similarly suffered the same fate last year as he also missed his class 8 marks making him opt to repeat the class.

In 2016, the student was studying at Naivasha DEB primary school and transferred after he missed marks for some subjects and total marks.

In this year’s results, Njau also suffered the same fate as he missed marks for two subjects and the one which he received he was awarded very little marks which his teachers doubted saying he was a bright student.

His class teacher Mr. John Wanyenyi speaking to KNA on Friday said the boy has never scored less than 90 percent in mathematics and on his KCPE results he had 33 percent.

The boy is a bright student and as a school we wonder why he has failed to get his total marks and pray to the Kenya National Examination Council to check what went wrong, added Mr. Wanyenyi.

On Friday, the school administration confirmed having contacted Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) after the candidate failed to get his results.

Murang’a East deputy education officer, Richard Ng’ang’a said the candidate was yet to get his results and they have informed KNEC who are working out to get a response on the matter.

I am aware that there is a candidate in my region who is yet to get results. My office together with the school are currently pursuing the council for an answer, said Ng’ang’a.

Vidhu Ramji primary school head teachers, Benson Kiritu said they were following up with the KNEC to find out what might have gone wrong.

We have a candidate yet to get his results and he was among the best, and we are following to ensure he gets his results, said Kiritu.
