Some parents and head teachers in Nyeri County have requested the Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) to mark the KCPE science paper again, saying results do not tally with previous performances.

Some of the top performers at Moi Nyeri Complex Primary scored A in all subjects except science, which they scored E.

Parents said their children have always been top performers even in science. The school principal Vincent Mwangi said: “As per my assessment, the science results do not reflect the ability of the pupils considering their past excellent performance in all subjects.

Mr Mwangi requested the council to recheck the science paper to clear doubts.
