Revealed: KCPE Marks Awarding Details Per Subject
The Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE)2021 results are ready. The marking of the exams ended on Tuesday.
A number of examiners have shared some hints of the results. According to some who shared with us some tips they said the standardization for mathematics is 0.85 while that for science is 0.84.
What this means is for example if a candidate scores 40 ticks in mathematics this means the maximum of 40 ticks will be 40 multiplied by 2 multiplied by 0.85 to get 68% and if he or she scores 50 ticks it becomes 85%.
According to examiners who confidential details of the exams from the examiners, said standardization for Mathematics is 85% Science 84% Social studies and Religion 86% English 97% while Kiswahili 97%.
They said English and Kiswahili were well performed with most learners scoring good marks.
According to the markers this year’s KCPE results will be better than the previous year.
However, these are speculations and we are still waiting for official announcements of the KCPE results.
