The selection will follow immediately after the release of the results by the Ministry of Education and the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC).

This is against the norm where the selection process has always been done in January while results have been released late December.

Over 950,000 pupils sat for the KCPE exam early November.

Last year, the Ministry of Education issued new guidelines on the selection process.

  • form one selection
  • form one admission 2016
  • form one selection 2017
  • kcpe form one selection 2017
  • national school form one selection 2017
  • list of extra county schools in kenya
  • knec secondary school choices 2017
  • necta selection form one 2017

Releasing the guidelines last year, Education Principal Secretary, Belio Kipsang, wrote to County Directors of Education and secondary school heads saying that the selection process would be on merit, equity and choice of schools.

He said that five top boys and girls in every sub-county would be placed in national schools of their choice.

“The top three candidates will be selected first across all sub-counties and then the remaining two according to their marks because there are areas with very few students hence the equity requirement,” he said.

Other pupils in every sub-county would be selected according to their marks between public and private schools.

Candidates who are not admitted to schools of their choice will be placed in schools of comparable level of performance.

Form One Selection 2016 Future Plans

He said that in conjunction with county governments, the national government will develop alternative pathways, including youth polytechnics, to make available more avenues for youth to further education and training.

“They [youth polytechnics] not only help in increasing transition rates within the basic education, but also provide opportunities for vocational skills development, a critical prerequisite for national development,” he said.

Dr Matiang’i said that there existed immense opportunities in the vocational field in the country.
