Form One selection for 2020 KCPE candidates results show that 708,516 will join sub-county schools, representing 60 per cent of learners who sat last year’s exam. At least 36,252 learners have been placed in national schools, 201,067 posted to extra-county schools and 213,591 selected to county schools.
Prof George Magoha, CS Education; “We have strictly applied the principles of equity, fairness, merit, transparency, inclusiveness and affirmative action in the form one selection. That is why the placement has taken longer.”
“Candidates and parents can now access joining instructions that are available online for all categories of schools through the ministry’s www.education.go.ke or check the results by texting the candidate’s number only to 22263. Schools will download their selection list by logging onto nemis portal,” Magoha stated.
