A few days ago, Education CS George Magoha released the 2021 KCPE results.
The exams had been done a few weeks earlier, when more than 1.2 million students completed them after three days.
The CS then announced that Form 1 selection was to begin later.
The exercise has been completed, and pupils can check where they have been placed.
Unlike years ago, when you had to wait for a letter to arrive from your next high school, you can access that information via SMS.
All you have to do is the following:
- Open your phone messages app.
- Type in the KCPE index number.
- Then send it to 22263.
- You should receive your placement then.
To note, the SMS can be sent from Safaricom, Telkom Kenya, or Airtel Kenya lines.
It costs KES 25.
According to the Ministry, more than 38K pupils will get slots in national schools.
There are 103 national schools in the country.
The number is national school admission is higher than before because the institutions have a 30K capacity.
Soon, the Ministry will also release KCPE results that were completed a few weeks ago too. Successful candidates will gain entry to local universities, colleges, and tertiary institutions.
