Revealed, KNEC Standard Grading System for all Subjects

The Kenya National Examination Council is the body in charge of Examination in Kenya.When candidates do exams from the council they are graded according to the marls they score per subject. Finally the subject are averaged to get. the mean score and mean grade subsequently.

Most people don't really understand how the grades are got in every subjects and in this article I want to bring you authentic data of the grading systems which the council uses after marking has been done.this grading system however can be adjusted to what is the outcome of the overall students performance.

Even if they will be altered it will be so slightly though to suit the standard analysis of the KCSE results.

Below are the grading systems of the major subjects tested by KNEC.
