According to the CS, 38,797 KCPE candidates have been selected to join national schools, 214,960 others have been placed in extra county schools while 258,456 will be enrolled in county schools.
Another 726,311 students will be enrolled in sub-county schools while 2,045 have been placed in special needs schools.
Magoha added that more than 800 students from informal settlements are among those selected to join national and extra county schools. The candidates who scored 380 marks and above are ordinarily assured of places in national and extra county schools.
