Here’s how to check your Form 1 Placement details:

Close to 39,000 students have been placed in National Schools. Over 470,000 joined extra-county and county schools. Over 726,000 joined sub-county schools. Another over 2000 joined special needs schools. The CS noted that the candidates have been placed in 9,200 public schools countrywide. He assured that all pupils will transition to secondary school.

In addition, joining instructions for schools of all categories can be accessed through an online portal on the education ministry website as follows:

  1. From the main menu, select the school category list (National, Extra County, County and Sub-county).
  2. Proceed to submit the candidate’s index number.
  3. At the bottom of the next page, click through the ‘Admission letter’ link to open the admission letter.
  4. Use the ‘Printer’ icon to print or download the document.
  5. Then take it to the candidate’s primary school headteacher for endorsement and stamping.

The candidate is required to present the stamped letter alongside their birth certificate on the admission day.

Schools can check for the details of the students they received from the – NEMIS portal. Above all, the government is expecting a 100% transition from primary to secondary school.

However, CS Magoha noted that principals are not allowed to register new students into the NEMIS portal until they report physically to the secondary schools. This is in an effort to keep track of students that have not yet reported in order to ensure 100% transition from primary school.
