Why do the search to our small boys and girls. KNEC should not continue treating CBC like 844. Let the atmosphere not be that tensed up.
I thought cbc is competence based but it just the same as 844 tensing our children at an early age
Wow how quick is the government to remove a timetable so early
The cbc final assessment shouldn’t be that tensing…..leaners aught to be given a free atmosphere and do it without fear.
All this rules and regulations will only but scare the hell out of our young boys and girls, I potty my own!
Now i believe that i have a candidate in the house…..my question is after that exams …where next?♀️
Your rules and regulations make it more of an exam than assessment. Let us see the paradigm shift. Stop being rigid to change.
Y do they overload our kids with a lot of subjects when its only a few that will be assessed???
I think our boys and girls should be given a tension free zone…….they are too young
Weeeh cbc manenoz
it is exam not assessment.woi
After this so called assessment which is more of exams. Where will our children proceed to next??
Why ur exams timetable is a halfway,and then after national exams Grade 6 where to next,I have a child in that class
Exam is good to make them work otherwise professional course eg medicine, engineering may die cz today’s children work under some conditions. Happy to see that there is an exam to determine various pathways
Noted though why multiple choices?
Wehhh i did not expect that…..
