Form One selection to commence on Tuesday
The Cabinet Secretary for Education, Science and Technology, Prof. Jacob Kaimenyi will on Tuesday, launch Form One Selection at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development.
The selected students will be expected to join Form One between February 2-13, 2015.
National secondary schools will take precedence in the two-day exercise. This will be followed by the launch of selection for County secondary school between January 26-27, 2015.
The exercise will wind up on January 29, 2015 with the selection of students to be admitted into Sub-county schools.
The selection of the students into form one is based, like in recent years on merit, choice of the students, quarter system, equity and affirmative action.
ACCESS TO INFORMATION
Parents and students will be able to access information regarding which school their children have been admitted by sending an sms with the candidate’s index numbers to 20042.
Students who will be selected to join National Schools will be able to access the information immediately on the day the Ministry launches the exercise while students who will have been admitted into County Schools will access this information on January 26, 2015.
The Ministry of Education, in conjunction with County Governments, will also conduct selection of students into Youth Polytechnics on February 05, 2015.
The selection aims at providing alternative education and training opportunities for students who, because of shortage of form one places, will not have been admitted into form one.
