E). Teachers who have served as interns, before, are awarded an extra 30 marks provided they show evidence of internship service.

  1. marking scheme. is good

  2. I don’t like the criteria tsc is using some of went to college immediately after form four and graduated at 20 we were not securing jobs because of age… Attaining the required age of 30 and after staying for 10 yrs you again change the score sheet to favour the interns yet internship is not again given to all of us……What should I do now…am very much dissappointed .

  3. it’s too sorrowful when intern posts were given to young and teachers who recently completed their course,yet a teacher like I with 10+yes outside lugs off as SCDEs considered trs of my like would be absorbed soon,am too frustrated. Again does gov’t believe that there aren’t teachers aged 35yrs & above who were blocked by internship? TSC should remember we also have families and they require us too Johna Maua

  4. I would like to inquire how scoring is done for one who first graduated as a diploma teacher and further enhanced degree. Kindly assist.Thanks in advance.

  5. I would like to know how a teacher with both a diploma and degree is scored

  6. Comment:TSC to be more considerate, some trs have and still suffering a lot.. some have 10+ yrs since college without jobs
