Last years KCPE examination candidates have only until today to join form one in their school of choice.This is after the government extended the reporting dates from 12 to 17th January. Consequently, replacements for those who will mot have reported will be made on Friday.

Those selected during the replacvemnt exercise will be expected to report by January 23rd. The government had promised that all the 993,718 candidates who sat last years KCPE would join form one. It had expected that some 903,200 students would join public secondary schools while the remaining enroll in private schools.

However, this has not been the case with a number of schools registering a poor turn out. For example, Dukana Boys Sec in Marsabit county has only admitted 3 students.

We wish all the form ones all the best in their grace period and in their new chapter of life. We also, hope that all who have not yet reported to school will do by the end of today.


What words of advice would you give to a form one?
