Errors in Grade 8 exam papers

Letters, Normal

AS an educator, I am dismayed with the number of errors that appeared in the Grade Eight examinations this year.
In the mathematics paper, the word “how” was spelled as “hoe”.
In the same paper, question no.47 on the question paper asked for one thing while on the answer sheet, it asked for a different thing.
Another mistake was in combined subject, question no.7.
There was no correct answer for the students to answer as it was a multiple choice.
Did the people who wrote the examination papers check and make corrections before printing?
These are some of the many mistakes identified.
Are mistakes part of the so-called reform education?
Someone has to come out and explain to the nation why there was no final check.
