Form One Selection Results to be Released Today-CS Machogu

January 16, 2023

1,233,852 candidates who sat for their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination November last year will know their form one placement results today.

This is after Education CS Ezekiel Machogu while speaking to the Nation said he will release the selection results at Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development.

The selection, the CS said is automated where the computer system used performance, choice and capacity of a particular institution to generate pupils’ placement.

“We will be releasing the Form One Selection results on Monday at exactly 10 am,” said Machogu

The CS said all students will join form one in line with government directive of 100 percent transition policy,

The selection exercise was conducted by the Ministry of Education, in collaboration with Kenya National Examinations Council and the ICT Authority.

Like in previous years’ selection, the same criteria will be used in which merit, equity and choice will be emphasized.

Further to ensure fairness, affirmative action, especially in national schools, will also be applied in regard to placement.

Kenya has 112 national, 776 extra-county, 1,301 county, 6,297 sub-county and 1,301 private secondary schools.

Voicing his concern on the selection process, National Parents Association Chairman, Silas Obuhatsa, urged the Ministry to ensure fairness and transparency pointing that pupils from private schools had previously been disadvantaged.

“We call for fairness in the selection that is solely conducted by the Ministry of Education. Children should be given a chance to join schools of their choice. Parents need to be involved in the exercise in the future,” he noted.

Echoing Obuhatsa’s sentiments, Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) Secretary-General Akelo Misori, called upon the Ministry to ensure that the criteria is based on a candidate’s choice and performance.
