Grade 6 Learners Told To Select Junior Secondary Schools By 30th August-How To Do Selection
The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has given grade six learners two weeks to complete their selection for junior secondary schools. The selection, which should be conducted through the KNEC portal, was to start from August 15 and end on August 30.
The ministry has already registered both public and private schools to host junior secondary schools in January.

Magoha, while commissioning the new Mitihani House, said registered institutions will not need to be registered again.
“Learners shall be offered placement in all existing registered public and private schools,” Magoha said.
The learners will be placed based on various aspects and not just the summative assessment.
Grades 4, 5 and 6 learners sit school-based assessments, which account for 40 per cent of the summative assessment.
“Selection of admission will be premised on principles of merit, affirmative action, choice of schools and institutions’ declared capacity,” Magoha said.
The portal will also allow learners to select from a list of registered private schools.
Magoha, however, advised parents to select private schools that they can afford.
“Parents shall meet the cost of learning in private schools as is the usual practice,” he said.
Parents who want to enrol their Grade 6 learners in private school for junior secondary have 369,948 slots to pick from.
Nairobi county has the highest number of approved private schools.
Nairobi county has 142 schools followed by Kiambu county with 114 schools.
