I strongly wish to express my disappointment and a concern on FSFE marks this year and the system utilised by the Ministry of Education in finalising the marks of students after markers submit raw marks to exams department.
As a student who sat for FSFE this year, I feel that there are loopholes in the method of testing and finalising marks which leads to a lot heartache, frustration and low morale to us deserving students.
I have worked really hard to see this day and I was not mentally braced for what was merely thrown my way due to negligence on someone else’s part.
I was shocked out of my boots when I saw my false mark in English, especially it being a compulsory subject. I would like to sincerely ask the authorities concerned to give me back my true reflection of success of which I am 100 per cent deserving of.
My previous external exam and internal exam results speak volumes of my calibre. I have scored 371 marks in FSLC scoring 85 per cent marks in English. My internal English marks are 85 per cent+. I have scored 348 marks in FSFE which are  90 plus except 69 in English.
To substantiate my claims I have documents such as certificates from National and International organisations vetting my victories in writing competitions up to regional levels.
Therefore I reiterate that 69 per cent is not my mark and I would like to challenge the education system to prove otherwise.
I do not deserve this and I will not take this lying down and I ask for an immediate cleanup of this mess and the uprooting of this recurrent evil.
I am not against testing. But we students are united in our opposition to a one-size-fits-all approach to education which assumes everyone should be treated fairly and get the marks they deserve.”
