Here is a guide on how to check for Form 1 placement 2023 via SMS and online. The 2022 KCPE candidates will be joining secondary schools soon.
Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu has released Form 1 Placement, nearly a month after approximately 1.3 million candidates took their KCPE exams.
The selection process, as per Education CS Ezekiel Machogu, was carried out using a computer-generated selection system.
The system, according to the CS, is based on a specific institution’s performance, choice, and capacity.
The ministry will also employ affirmative action to position learners in national schools, with the top five candidates from each sub-county being posted in top schools based on their preferences.
Candidates who sat for the KCPE examination will know which secondary schools they have been assigned to and can start preparing for admission soon enough.

The digital form one selection system was introduced by former education Cs Dr. George Magoha. Unlike the old system where students used to receive calling letters from multiple schools, nowadays a candidate is only entitled to one calling letter.
This was introduced in a bid to ensure equality and fairness in the selection process. This system has ensured that all candidates get a chance to join a high school.
Also, it has ensured each school gets enough students, unlike the older system which was associated with lots of unoccupied form-one slots in schools.
