Minister for Education Dr. Mahendra Reddy says the final Year 6 – intermediate exam results should be released later today.
Provisional results for the examination were released on the Education website last week revealing a number of zeros and under the pass rate grades.
“The idea of the provisional result was to send it back to the schools for them to give us information that we take it back and fix it, we’ve got all the information we needed yesterday, most of it, we now working on it, yesterday, last night, 3 lots, 3 shifts, we’ve doubled up markers and we’re trying to get the thing out."
Dr. Reddy says administrative laxity and unclear identification on exam papers can be attributed to the unexpected provisional exam results.
More than 17 000 children sat for the Year 6- Intermediate Exams in September across 730 centers in the country.
