The Secretary of State in the Ministry of Education in charge of primary and secondary schools, Twagirayezu Gaspard, thanked the students who performed well in the exams, teachers, and parents.

“I would like to thank the students here who have been able to work harder than others and the teachers who have been involved in this whole program both in terms of preparing the tests and correcting them,” he said.

The Director of Examinations at the National School Examinations and Inspection Agency (NESA), Kanamugire Emile, pointed out that teachers are involved in the preparation of examinations because they know the children they teach and their knowledge.

A new scoring system

Kanamugire pointed out that a new method was used to determine the grades, where all grades were set at 60 instead of 73 as usual.

An examinee who scores between 70-100 in a particular subject is in the category called ‘Excellence’ which is assigned the letter ‘A’ with a value of 6.

The next category between 69 and 65 is the letter ‘B’ with a value of 5. Between 64 and 60 is ‘C’, the value of which is ‘4’. Between 59 and 50, the letter is ‘D’ and its value is ‘3’.

He is between 40-49, the letter associated with his class is ‘E’ and its value is ‘2’. A grade 1 score is between 20 and 39.

His class is marked with the letter ‘S’. If you get between 0 and 19, you win. Its letter is ‘F’ and its value is ‘0.’

Appeals will be made through educational institutions and independent candidates who have reached NESA.

Kanamugire continued, “The reason why appeals are closed in the school is that the teachers know the performance of the students and that helps us to see the appeals and respond to them.”

Students achieve better than others
High achievers in various categories were commended for their display of character and skill during a challenging school year.
