Form One Admissions Commence Today

Admissions to over 10,000 secondary schools for candidates who sat for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination in 2021 have begun today.

The Ministry of Education last week moved Form Ones’ admission date to May 4 last week, following the declaration of May 3 as a public holiday.

“The Cabinet Secretary, Ministry of Interior has gazetted May 3 as a public holiday, which is the date the Form One students were expected to report. Consequently, it has been decided that the reporting date for Form One students will be from May 4,” said the ministry in a circular dated April 27.

Prof George Magoha, the Cabinet Secretary for Education, had promised the nearly one million students who took the exam that they would be admitted to secondary schools according to the government's 100% transition strategy.

Form One candidates are reporting to school a week after the rest of the classes resumed learning; the government insists that it will work with the local administration to ensure that all of them report to school.

The ministry has stated that it will collaborate with other government entities to guarantee that no candidate is denied a secondary school placement. Education ministry officials would be required to submit accurate daily reports on the status of reporting to schools.
