At least 1,233,852 candidates who sat their KCPE in 2022 will know where they have been placed in secondary school today.
Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu will Monday morning release the results of the automated Form One selection today at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development.
The CS has assured parents that all candidates who sat the exams will get a place in form 1 in line with the government’s 100 per cent transition policy.
“We will be releasing the Form One Selection results on Monday at exactly 10 am,” CS Machogu told the Daily Nation.
The placement to secondary school is computerised. Learners are placed based on factors such as their performance, overall performance, their school choices and capacity of the schools.
The government also uses affirmative action to place learners in national schools, where all top five candidates of either gender from every sub-county are placed in top schools based on their choices.
Candidates select 11 schools before they sit the exam. They pick four national schools, three extra county schools, two county and two sub-county schools.
