Kapsabet Boys High School Senior Secondary School Selection; Admission Letters and List

Admissions: Senior Secondary selection, application, enrolment rate, criteria, and requirements, admission letters, and placement list

The school admits at least 450 students per year.  This cohort is usually selected by the Ministry of Education to ensure fairness and equal opportunity for all students in Kenya. The selection of students to the school is evenly distributed across all 47 counties in Kenya.

The main selection criterion when it comes to Senior Secondary selection and placement at Grade 10 is the student’s previous performance in KPSEA results.

Interested applicants should however tender their interest when selecting their preferred secondary schools at the primary level long before the KPSEA Knec results get released.

Worth noting is the fact that picking the school as your first choice is not a direct ticket to the institution. Any student who wishes to join the school must surpass the pass-mark set by the Ministry of Education.

Unlike in the past when some parents and school heads could influence the grade 10 selection list, the selection is done by the MOE and it is purely based on the student’s KPSEA marks, regional balance, and affirmative action.
