A family in Mombasa is crying foul after their daughter scored B+ in 2019 KCSE exams with one of her favorite subjects missing.
The family now want the ministry of education to intervene.
Their daughter who was a candidate at Alliance Girls was awarded marks for six subjects only, out of which she managed to score four straight As.
In the results with six subjects only, the candidate managed to score 7o points.
According to the family, History which is missing in the results was their daughter’s favorite subject.
They say she has been performing well in the subject and they believe she could have scored a straight A.
If History is included in the results and it happens that she scores a straight A, her points will rise to 82, making it a straight A.
KCSE: Kilio cha familia.

This year’s KCSE results were released on Wednesday 18th December, three days earlier compared to 2018 KCSE exam results.
Top candidate, Buluma Tony Wabuko from Kapsabet Boys scored a straight A with 87.159 points followed by Barasa Maryanne Njeri from Kenya High School who scored 87.087 points.
The exams’ marking was however done in a hurry.
Questions were raised after the examination marking ended on Thursday, December 12, 2019.
The marking process started a day after students sat for the last KCSE paper and by the set deadline will have lasted for two weeks.
The exams were concluded on November 27, 2019, and a total of 699,745 students sat for the test.
The total number of examiners tasked with the marking of the scripts was 26,597.
What captured the attention of many social media users was the speed with which the process was conducted despite the hurdles along the way.
Others argued about the ratio between the examination papers and the markers, this was considering that some subjects contain two or three papers, that is, Physics Paper 1, 2, and 3.
