Speaking during the inspection of the completed Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) classrooms in Gilgil and Naivasha sub-counties, Prof Magoha said the placement was conducted in a fair manner.

He called on parents to be satisfied with the schools, where their children have been placed, promising they will be taught by competent teachers.

“I can now confirm that by today, parents will know where their children have been placed,” Magoha said.

This year’s placement is likely to see thousands of candidates who did not score 400 marks and above join national schools, which have the capacity to accommodate over 30,000 students.

The ministry’s last year data shows that some 36,254 candidates were placed in national schools, 201,077 in extra-county schools,1.2 million in county schools, 1,827 in special needs schools, and 718,516 in sub-county schools.

In the 2021 KCPE exam, some 11,857 candidates scored between 400 and 500 marks, compared to the 8,091 in 2020, increasing the number by 3,766.

Another 315,275 candidates scored between 300 and 399 marks, compared to the 282,090 who scored the same marks in 2020; while 578,197 candidates scored between 200 and 299 marks, compared to the 589,027 candidates under the same category in 2020.

He assured that bright and needy learners will be placed in good schools and most of them will receive scholarships.

Magoha said his office was aware of needy cases including a letter by lawyer Fridah Lotuiya, from Baringo pleading with the Ministry to have a special selection for Baringo students. He revealed that President Uhuru Kenyatta already issued a directive on the matter.

Lotuiya, in her letter, had pleaded with the ministry to consider offering scholarships to students, who had been affected by bandits attacks.
