KCSE-2020 Candidates Are Likely To Score High In Geography, Mathematics, Chemistry And Physics because of This

The organizational structure of the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) for each subject changes every year because it depends on the level of performance of students.

The code collections and codes used by KNEC are as follows,

GROUP I COMPULSORY subjects
Under this section, we have 101 English code, Kiswahili102 code, Mathematics Alt. Code 121, Mathematics Alt. B code122.

Group II SCIENCES subjects II
SineChemistry code 233, Physics code 232, Biology code 231, Biology Braille code 236, General Science code 237

GROUP III HUMAN SCIENCE

Next, Geographic Code 312, History and Government Code 231, Christian Religious Education Code 313, Islamic Religious Education Code 314, Hindu Religious Education Code 315

GROUP IV Applied SCIENCE
Enter the following, Computer Studies code 451, Agriculture code 443, Home Science code 441, Art and Design code 442, Woodwork code 444, Metalwork code 445, Building Construction code 446, Power Mechanics code 447, Electricity code 448, Drawing and Design code 449, Aviation Technology 450 code.

GROUP V LANGUAGES
Includes, French code 501, German code 502, Arabic code 503, Kenyan sign language code 504, music code 511, Business Studies 565 code

Students need to take at least seven subjects from the groups listed in the grades. They must take English, Kiswahili and Mathematics as compulsory in the first grade including at least two science subjects from the second group and at least a Humanity subject in group 3. The seventh subject should be selected from the remaining sections. However, it is recommended that a student take 8 to 9 subjects as an additional benefit in case he or she does not get good marks in other subjects.

That is understood, the grading system, my points and marks as follows; 12-point A (plain), 11-point A- (Minus), 10-point B + (plus), 9-point B (plain), 8-point B- (point) subtract), 7 points C + (again), 6 points- C (plain), 5 points- C- (minus), 4 points D + (plus), 3 points- D (plain), 2 points D – (minus) and 1 point- E.

Following the annual grading program developed by KNEC, candidates for 2020-KCSE are likely to pass Mathematics, Geography, Chemistry and Physics.

So why is it so difficult to expect high marks in four subjects taken by students? The placement rate in the four subjects is very low compared to other subjects, however the papers according to many selected students are not very good. Several students testified and reassured their teachers by sending standard marks such as A plain. See the rating system below.
