In the Grade Eight Science paper sent to schools in the Central Province the same question has been repeated twice as a sub question in two different main questions.
Another grave blunder was committed by the educational authorities in the Southern province where the suggested answers which are normally sent separately to the teachers were printed in the Grade 11 English paper.
