The Ministry of Education says the 2022 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) candidates, will today know the secondary schools they will attend.
The event will be presided over by Education Cabinet Secretary (CS) Ezekiel Machogu at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD).
Through a computer-generated placement system, 1,233,852 candidates will be placed in 112 national, 776 extra county, 1,301 county and 6,297 sub county schools.
Others will join the 1,301 private secondary schools.
According to the Education Ministry, the system is based on performance, choice and capacity of a particular institution.
It further said that the placement is based on merit and equity with affirmative action considered especially for national schools.
Meanwhile, 1.26 million students who sat the Grade 6 assessment, will receive their results today.
According to the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC), the results will be used to provide feedback to education stakeholders on areas that require intervention.
This follows recommendations by the education review team, that sought to do away with KPSEA as a placement tool for Grade 7, and instead assess the progress of the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).
