Cut-Off to each National School is automatically determined based on the last Candidate to be Selected to a given National Schools from a Given District in a County.

County Schools are Selected on a 40% (National): 40% (to Districts within County and Inclusive Home District of the School): 20% (for Home/Host District of the School).

2) Selection of Other National Schools Quota based on Candidates ratio from Public and Private;
3) System gives advantage to Counties inclusive of host County in filling vacancies which may arrise during the selection (such as in ability of certail Districts to produce candidates with more or equal to 280 marks);

    Intake
    by: Anna

    How will we know we have been selected in form 1?

    A. Admission letters for secondary school are sent to your former primary school via the local education director. You then collect the letter from there. This applies to all Government Schools - National, Extra-County, County, District.

    Expression of Worries
    by: Francis

    I think the process of not letting the admission letters be distributed from the educational centers will help a lot to make all pupils get their admin letters.

    Personally I finished primary school in 2003 and I almost received no calling letter though l got 400 marks and I had to be admitted to a local day school with all my efforts and was not happy with that and I still plan to follow up on it even after I completed my degree course.
