Laikipia County Assembly Deputy Majority leader Irene Wacuka

As parents rush to meet school requirements for their children to join Junior Secondary School (JSS), some have been left wondering what action to take amid the confusion as the transition from 8.4.4 system to CBC slowly takes shape. 

Numerous reports have been raised concerning the number of required subjects for the recently released Grade 6 exams with the question of missing marks being a common complaint.

Laikipia County Assembly Deputy Majority leader Irene Wacuka who is also Igwamiti ward MCA lamented over some certificates having less number of the required subject for smooth transition.

Wacuka noted that while some certificates indicate 5 subjects, others show the number of subjects examined being 7, 8, 9 or 10 while the number of subjects required is 11.

She is asking the Education led by CS Ezekiel Machogu to look into the matter  fearing that this might interfere with the future studies of the students. 

Wacuka also questioned the KCSE results released recently citing biasness of how grades were distributed across the country.

She wants cases of examination cheating probed.

Parents at Mt. Angel Primary school in Nyahururu town are the most affected, although they declined to talk to the press for fear of victimization.
