They also said that Knec failed to standardise the examination.Kenya Union of Post Primary official (Kuppet) official Akello Misori said that Knec failed to standardise the examination and set up the grading system that made many students to fail.

They further said that Knec released raw results in its rush to beat the deadline.According to them, the results were supposed to be moderated before being released.

Teachers also said that marking was done hurriedly without really critically counter checking the making of those exams.

Lastly, they said that the examiners used the same grading system across all subjects an issue that disadvantaged those who were taking sciences.
