The Ministry of Education has released the 2024 Form One placement results placing over 1.4 million students in secondary schools.

In a statement released on Monday, Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu stated that a total of 1,400,329 students who sat for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) had secured the Form One placement.

This saw a total of 42,927 students placed in National Schools, 2,225 students in Special Needs Education, 274,746 in Extra County, 288,201 in County schools and 792,230 students in Sub-county schools.

“A total of 717,358 boys and 682,971 girls have acquired a chance to join Form one in the National schools, Special Needs Education, Extra County schools, County Schools and Sub-County Schools,” Machogu said.

Kabianga High School selected by 186,357 672 students, Nanyuki High School with 158,741 480 students, Pangani Girls by 144,542 384 students, Kapsabet Boys, Alliance Girls, Maseno School, Nakuru High School, Butere Girls High School, Mang’u High School and Alliance High School made up the list of most selected schools.

The CS said the selection and placement exercise was strictly guided by the principles of merit, choice, equity, affirmative action, and availability of space.

He added that the choices made candidates played a significant role in the outcome.

“A few candidates could not be placed using the above criteria and were placed in schools of equivalent standing outside their counties. This number included those from counties with inadequate capacity,” he said.

The CS said 2023 KCPE candidates can access their Form One admission results by visiting Ministry of Education website or through the Kenya Education Management Information System (KEMIS).
