(Form One Selection) May 2022 Form One Placement Results: How to Appeal and Request for Change of Form One Selection and Placement in 2022
HOW TO APPEAL FORM ONE PLACEMENT (SELECTION) IN 2022
Given the fact that the Ministry of Education, MoE, in Kenya is expected to conduct a nationwide exercise that will see over 1.2 million KCPE 2021 candidates get admitted to different cadres of secondary schools in May 2022, there is a greater possibility that some of the KCPE candidates especially top scorers may not get Placement to their schools of choice.
Furthermore, the Cabinet Secretary in charge of Education Professor George Magoha has already cautioned the candidates against striving for top national and extra County Secondary Schools in the nation since their capacity is limited despite having better infrastructure and a conducive learning environment just to mention a few pros.
The good news is that the 2022 form One Placement Results are not a death sentence. No. KCPE candidates who are dissatisfied with the form One Placement Results are allowed to appeal their case for better Placement. However, it is good to be cautious when applying for a change in your form One Placement/ Selection since the process is irreversible.
How to Apply for Change of Form One Placement/ Selection
In order to apply for change of form one placement, follow the easy steps below;
The parent or guardian should place a request at the school of interest; where he/ she wants the kid to be transferred to. The school will then shortlist and merit all students in the waiting (request) list and make a decision on those they will like to absorb; depending on the available (unfilled) vacancies.
The school through the National Education Management System, NEMIS –http://nemis.education.go.ke/, shall enter the details of the selected candidates from their waiting list and request the Ministry to capture them in the new school.
Approval to the schools’ requests shall be granted at different levels depending on the Category of the school. Approval for National, Extra County and County schools will be granted by the Ministry’s Head Office, Regional Coordinators and County Directors of Education, respectively.
Once the approval has been granted, the learner will then be moved from the selection list of the first school to the latest (new) school.
The parent/ guardian will then go online and print the admission letter for the new school.
