Education CS George Magoha Says That Form One Selection Results Will Be Out Next Week

Form One Selection results for Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) candidates will be released out week, as ammounced by the Education Cabinet George Magoha.

Prof. Magoha stated that over 1.2 million candidates did the 2021 KCPE will get to know the secondary schools they have been placed on April 11 or April 12.

Magoha was speaking at Kenya High School in Nairobi where he commissioned a Competence-Based Curriculum (CBC) classroom for junior secondary students.

The CS reassured parents that all KCPE candidates will be accorded an equal opportunity to access national schools based on performance, choices and affirmative action.

According to the CS, the selection will be based on merit where affirmative action will be applied to ensure all national schools have a national outlook.

Magoha assured that no child will be disadvantaged in the placement process and insisted that not all candidates who scored over 400 marks will get placement in national schools.

Magoha explained that the selection criteria also favour candidates who sat the exam under disadvantaged conditions and scored high marks.

“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," stated CS Magoha.

Magoha further added that the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination results will be out before the end of April.

He warned that anybody who was found with evidence to aid in exam cheating shall face the law according to the Kenya National Examination Council’s laws. Students who were involved in exam cheating will also have a price to pay.
