Candidates who sat the 2020 KCPE exams will report to secondary schools on August 2.
Speaking while releasing Form One Selection exercise results on Tuesday at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) Nairobi, on Tuesday, Education CS George Magoha made the announcement adding that in the placement, national schools will admit 36,254 students out of which 17,406 girls and 18,848 boys.
However, the CS says the candidates do not get proper guidance in the selection of schools.
“Poor selection guidance made many of the candidates miss their preferred selection,” Magoha said.
He called on headteachers and parents to help learners in selection process as the competition for top schools was competitive.
