Form One Selection to Be Done Next Week - Magoha
The 2021 KCPE candidates who received their results last week will know which secondary schools they will be admitted to next week.
Education CS George Magoha said the over 1.2 million learners will all join form one under the 100 per cent transition policy.
Magoha was speaking at Kenya High school on Wednesday where he commissioned a CBC classroom.
The CS assured that the selection exercise will be fair and unbiased.
According to Magoha, affirmative action will be applied to ensure all national schools in the country have a national outlook in terms of representation.
"I want a Samburu girl who has done exam in Maralal to be in Kenya High School, whether anybody likes it or not we shall do that," Magoha said.
"I would want also a child from Thika who has done his exam at Kiandutu primary school...or one from either Kibera or somewhere in Mlango Kubwa," he added.
Under the affirmative action, top five candidates of either gender from every sub-county are placed in national schools based on the choices they made when registering for KCPE exam.
A total of 1,214,031 candidates sat the 2021 KCPE exam.
A total 11,857 candidates scored between 400 and 500 marks in the exam.
Those who scored between 300 marks and 399 are 315,275.
A further 578,197 scored between 200 and 299 marks.
Candidates who scored 380 marks and above will be hoping to be placed in prestigious national and extra county schools.
