Pre-Selection for Special Needs Schools
Candidates with hearing and visual impairments will be pre-selected for special or integrated secondary schools which cater to their respective disabilities.
Computation of Quotas and selection:
In order to ensure equity in form 1 selection, available places are shared out using a formula that computes quotas for each sub-county.
Computation of Quotas is applied based on sub-county candidature. In 2021 the capacity for each school will be computed on the basis of 48 (forty-eight) students per stream for national, extra county, and county schools while sub-county schools may accommodate 50 students.
Candidates with special education needs will be considered for selection to special or integrated secondary schools depending on their choice, merit, and disability/need.
Candidates with special needs who will have chosen regular schools will be given priority in the selection per category of choice.
National School selection.
The slots in national schools are shared among all sub-counties in the country with a candidature ratio of public to private of 50: 50.
The following formula is applied for the computation of sub-county quotas for the candidates to be admitted to a national school:
Sub-county Quota=Sub-county KCPE Candidature of a given gender/ National KCPE Candidature of given gender X Available Vacancies in the National School
When a Sub-county misses a slot due to low candidature, affirmative action will be applied.
