Many of the pupils ignored picking national schools from their county and concentrated in picking national schools from major towns. Due to the high number of applicants for the top national schools, the schools allegedly picked the best among the thousands of pupils who had interest in joining the schools.
For instance it is alleged that many of the top national school concentrated on pupils who had 380 marks and above. Since those who got 350 marks and above qualify for national schools they were then distributed to national schools in their county of residence. This is because they had already missed a chance on their national school choice and could not be placed on extra county schools. It should be noted that those who did KCPE exams each got an invite to only one school.
