It is the responsibility of the Ministry of Education to place all the 2023 KCPE candidates to their secondary school of choice. The Ministry places the students to all public National, Extra County, County and Sub County schools.

Placement of the KCPE 2023 candidates is done based on criteria set by the Ministry of Education. Top on the list of factors that the Ministry considers is the candidate’s performance (total marks) in the KCPE 2023 examinations.

Students with the highest scores (Over 400) are always placed at National Schools.

The vice versa is versa is true as students with lowest scores are placed in Sub County schools.

Another criteria that is considered is affirmative action; where the cut off marks for form one selection is lowered considerably for vulnerable groups of students.

The general performance at the KCPE examinations is also a key determinant in determining the cut-off points for the various categories of schools.

Last, but not least, the form one admissions is pegged on the specific schools’ Form one capacities. This is the maximum number of form one students that a school can accommodate; based on the available space and physical facilities. Schools can request for change of 2024 form one placements (Adjustment of school’s form one capacity).

Where the capacity of a school has improved due to development of additional facilities in the year, a principal must request for placement of additional students and approval in NEMIS.

After the application, the Ministry reviews and adjusts the school’s form one capacity; usually by allowing the school to admit more form one students.
