Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination results were released a couple of weeks ago and pupils will from Monday 3rd Dec 2018 know the schools they will join in January.
Those joining 103 national schools and who scored more than 400 marks will be the first group to know.
The selection started two weeks ago in Naivasha and came to an end on Friday.
12,273 candidates scored between 401 and 500 marks which means they will get a direct ticket to national schools.
Those who scored between 301 and 400 marks are 228,414 which means that some of them will still end up in national schools but depending on the region they come from with students from 17 marginalised areas being the greatest beneficiaries.
