A team of experts from the Ministry of Education is meeting to review Form One selection guidelines that will be used in this year’s admissions to secondary schools. The team, led by director of secondary education Paul Kibet, is analysing the available capacities of each school ahead of the placement.
The team meeting in Naivasha is also calculating the capacity and candidature of each sub-county, which will be useful during the selection and placement of students to national schools.
Basic Education PS Belio Kipsang already said there will be enough Form One slots for all the one million candidates who sat this year’s examination. Available data shows the total number of spaces available stands at about 1.1 million. Data from the Ministry shows that there are 29,712 slots in all the 103 national schools. Another 123,400 spaces are available in the 531 extra county schools and 142,358 slots in the 1,031 county schools.
