Releasing the guidelines last year, Education Principal Secretary, Belio Kipsang, wrote to County Directors of Education and secondary school heads saying that the selection process would be on merit, equity and choice of schools.

He said that five top boys and girls in every sub-county would be placed in national schools of their choice.

“The top three candidates will be selected first across all sub-counties and then the remaining two according to their marks because there are areas with very few students hence the equity requirement,” he said.

Other pupils in every sub-county would be selected according to their marks between public and private schools.

Candidates who are not admitted to schools of their choice will be placed in schools of a comparable level of performance.

He said that in conjunction with county governments, the national government will develop alternative pathways, including youth polytechnics, to make available more avenues for youth to further education and training.

“They [youth polytechnics] not only help in increasing transition rates within the basic education, but also provide opportunities for vocational skills development, a critical prerequisite for national development,” he said.
