Form One selection to start soon

The 2020 KCPE examinations candidates will know the secondary schools they will join in May.

While announcing this year’s results on Thursday, Education Cabinet Secretary Professor George Magoha said Form One selection would start on May 28.

“All the 1,187,517 candidates who sat the 2020 exams will transition to secondary schools, placement will be done based on merit, CS Magoha announces,” he said.

CS Magoha insisted that every candidate who sat the 2020 test will be admitted to secondary schools under the 100 percent transition policy.

“I wish to assure the country that the Ministry has already conducted an audit of all new and existing vacancies in all our private and public schools to enable us to admit all learners under the Free Day Secondary Education programme. We are determined to work with the relevant agencies to ensure that no candidate misses a place in secondary school,” he added.

The CS said that the performance of the 2020 KCPE candidates was commendable with no remarkable difference from the previous years.
