  • The selected students who have managed to secure the 1st & 2nd places (for categories of both boys and girls) can get into the national school of their own choices, i.e. if an allocation has already been provided for their Districts.
  • In the absence, the computer assigns such performing candidates schools of equivalent stature to their choices;
  • Selection of the other National Schools Quota based on the ratio of candidates from Private and public; County Schools purely selects students within a County, all boarding schools fall under this category; The system gives an advantage to Counties inclusive of host County in filling vacancies which may arise during the selection (such as the inability of certain Districts to produce candidates with more or equal to 280 marks);
  • District Selection: still done manually due to challenges of mapping primary schools or communities to the proximity of secondary day schools.
  • Selection of Extra-County Schools which have the same features as National Schools with the variance being the number of candidates to be picked being more within the host Counties of the schools.
