The top three candidates to join national schools will be selected first across all sub-counties, and then the remaining two according to candidature strength.

The rest of the candidates in each sub-county will then be selected based on candidature strength between public and private schools according to the guidelines.

The 18 schools considered more prestigious than the recently gazetted are all in the third cluster, meaning nocandidate can select any two of them.
