Erroneous marks

Githunguri Township Primary School was on the news in 2019 when 60 candidates had erroneous marks on their English paper. The candidates scored an average of grade D in the paper.

This was rectified after the school board lodged a complaint with the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC).

It was then discovered that the English composition marks for all the candidates had not been factored.
