13 January 2012, 18:39

Nairobi - Capital News reports that about 205,000 pupils who sat the 2011 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCSE) Examinations will miss places in secondary schools.

Education Minister Sam Ongeri said that of the national schools, there are 5,396 boys and 4,886 girls making a total of 10, 282, a big contrast from last year when we had about 4,391 students who were going to the 18 national schools.

Ongeri stated that the competition for form one places in national schools was stiffer after a high number of candidates obtained top grades in the Standard Eight examinations.
