From 160 Secondary and National High schools in the country, 510 markers, including five chief markers from Tertiary institutions have gathered today to start on the grade 12 marking.
The 28,500 grade 12 students, who sat for 16 National Exam subjects this year, will be selected through to tertiary institutions after the marking via, an online system recently announced by the Department of Higher Education.
While five different venues have been assigned for the marking to take place for the next two weeks, some venues have commenced marking since Monday this week.
Education Minister, Nick Kuman said TFF has given every child in the country an opportunity to be educated where 2.2million children are now in the school system since 2016.
He also stated that challenges relating to TFF policy have also been closely looked at and the Government through the Department of Education will be undergoing structural reforms soon to address it.
Kuman said students must be prepared to face challenges after grade 12 and teachers must play their role in setting the right foundation.
He added that certain core subjects such as Math, English and Science needs further emphasis where the Department will be focusing on to prioritise to achieve quality results.
