Last year 2020 total of one million eight hundred thousand(1.8 million) students  candidates sat for KCPE and all these students are expected to get slots  in different secondary schools in the country bearing in mind that there has been the 100% transition of learners from primary to secondary school.

The number of students who scored 400 marks and above was eight thousand and ninety-one(8,091) and all these will be expected to secure slots in top performing National schools. This will also include the top ten students both boys and girls from every sub-county  across the country would also  have an opportunity to secure National  school slots totaling to  3,350 candidates.

Good news is that, as much as for those learners who scored 400 marks and above could secure the National school slots there will still be more slots  remaining vacant to be filled by 21,568 learners who had scored 300 marks and above. This means they will have the opportunity to be selected to National schools.

This trend will continue down as those candidates who scored below 300 marks would also have an opportunity to be selected to county schools. The total number of learners who scored below 300 marks were 100,000.

Like in KCPE 2019 the selection exercise led to 111,817 applied to join Pangani girls high school in which there was only 336 slots available, 83489 candidates also applied to join Alliance girls where the slots only available were 384.In Kenya High the candidates who applied to join them was 9, 727 compared to the available slots 336.This form one selection exercise always works on merit and regional balance to ensure that all learners get a chance to join a school of choice without any biasness

This process of 100%  transition has been a major challenge to the Ministry of education. Like due to current state in the country there is Covid19 pandemic. A lot of schools do not have enough infrastructure that will enable them accommodate all the learners in line with the Ministry of Health guidelines in achieving one social distancing to control the spread of the virus. The government together with the the Ministry of education are working tirelessly to ensure that every school has got resources which will enable them put up structures early enough so that when they join in form one all these MOH guidelines are achieved.
