Bernard Bahati, the Director General of NESA said that for advanced level or senior six, whether for general education, TVET, or TTCs, the greatest total aggregate was 60.

According to NESA, this year a new grading boundary for national examinations core subjects have been established as follows; from 70 to 100 per cent is described as “Excellent” with a letter grade “A” and Grade Value “6” for each subject.

Whereas 65 to 69 per cent is described as “Very Good” with a letter grade “B” and Grade Value “5”. 60 to 64 per cent marks described as “Good” with a letter grade “C” and Grade Value “4”.

The marks ranging from 50 to 59 per cent are described as “Satisfactory” with a letter grade “D” and Grade Value “3”.

Scores from 40 to 49 per cent is described as “Adequate” with a letter grade “E” and Grade Value “2”.

This was determined by taking into account the importance of each subject in all possible combinations.

For secondary subjects at the Advanced level, a letter grade of “S” and a grade value of “1” indicate “Fair” performance, while a letter grade of “F” and a grade value of “0” indicate “Fail.”

Bahati said that, “we are not expecting them to come back and repeat the classes, we expect them to prepare and sit for the exam again they sit for exams as private candidates.”

Meanwhile the private candidates were 1, 481.
