KNEC recalls Embu KCPE results

10 January 2014, 12:23

Embu - The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has recalled the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) results for special students in Embu County.

This follows discrepancies that had been reported earlier.

Teachers from the region who sought anonymity intimated that candidates who do not hear well did not sit for Kiswahili examination but they received results for the paper which was abnormal.

The teachers further noted that results for the subjects undertaken by the handicapped students were not included in the released results.

The educators teachers expressed fears that students who had performed well risked missing out admissions to secondary schools if the release of the corrected results would be delayed.

Confirming the claims, Embu Educational officer, Beatrice Makau, said the recall of the results was necessary as students with hearing impairment usually did not sit for mathematics paper but instead sat for the Kenya Sign Language (KSL) examinations.

“There have been errors in the results that they received since they were given marks for the KSL and Kiswahili. These students do not take the Kiswahili subject so the results have been recalled by KNEC,” she said.

She further added that the county's mean grade will have to be calculated afresh.

These changes come just a week after the Education Cabinet Secretary, Jacob Kaimenyi, released the KCPE results.
