Education CS Prof George Magoha has revealed that top performers in 2019 KCPE examinations will know the national schools they are set to join on Monday.
Candidates who scored 400 marks and above are set to be admitted to the 136 national secondary schools in the country, and the list will be released tomorrow.
The selection process commenced immediately after KCPE results were released on November 18th.
The selection for extra-county and county schools is scheduled to commence on December 3rd and end on December 5th.
According to Education CS, the ministry has put in place the right measures and criteria to ensure the selection process will be fair, transparent and objective.
“The ministry has developed watertight criteria to ensure the process is fair, objective, transparent and in keeping with meritocracy,” Prof Magoha said.
Last year there were 103 national schools, and about 30,000 candidates were admitted to those schools.
There are 734 extra-county schools, 1,412 county schools, 6,451 sub-county schools and 1,164 private secondary schools.
There are also 35 special-needs education secondary schools with a capacity for about 1,500 students.
