Form One Placement Results To Be Released On 11th April - Magoha

Form One Placement Results To Be Released On 11th April – Magoha.
Form One placement results for Kenya Certificate of Primary Education candidates will be released next week, according to Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha.
Prof Magoha stated that over 1.2 million candidates who took the 2021 KCPE will find out where they will be attending secondary school on April 11 or April 12.
“I want to check the results personally just to be sure that no one has corrupted the results and that we have protected the weakest link,” said Magoha.
He was speaking at Nairobi High School, where he dedicated a Competence-Based Curriculum (CBC) classroom for junior secondary students.
Magoha reassured parents that all children who took the KCPE exams would have an equal opportunity to attend national schools based on performance, choices, and affirmative action.
According to the CS, Form One selection will be based solely on merit, with affirmative action used to ensure that all national schools have a national outlook.
He stated that no child will be disadvantaged in the placement process and insisted that not all candidates who scored more than 400 points would be placed in national schools.
Magoha explained that the selection criteria also favor candidates who took the exam in difficult conditions and scored well.
“I would like to see a girl who did an exam in Mararal in Samburu County and who scored highly to join Kenya High School and another from Kiandutu slums in Thika or Kibera slums to join national schools. That is the brief I have from the president,“ said Magoha.
Best of the best students will be placed in national schools, but ministry says it will use affirmative action to ensure that these schools reflect the Kenyan fabric.
"A child who scores 399 in a harsh environment is capable of doing better if they get equal opportunities as one in Nairobi,” said Magoha.

Critics of the selection formula were dismissed by the CS.
He also stated that 9,000 government-sponsored Elimu Scholarships will be awarded to top scorers who are unable to attend secondary school.
“Out of the 9,000 slots, 4,000 will cater for disadvantaged children in urban slums and others will be fairly distributed across all the sub-counties. We want to ensure we get the most deserving students for the scholarships,“ he added.

The CS stated that the program will benefit children from low-income families who have previously been pushed aside and their vacancies sold to wealthy families.
"We will be very fair in this exercise and you’ll hear a lot of noise from people who are used to those unfair placement schemes. I’m more attracted to that child from slums who has scored reasonably well and has no capacity to join a good school,” Magoha added.
