In Summary
  • The new order of admission requires use of the National Education Management Information System (Nemis).
  • The ministry earlier warned principals against the direct admission of students, saying it is an illegality.
  • Regarding the transfers of Form One students, Dr Kipsang reported that 36,026 had been made by Sunday following requests by principals through the Nemis.

Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang has asked private and public secondary schools to download and print their Form One selection forms ahead of the admission exercise that will begin on Monday.

The new order of admission requires use of the National Education Management Information System (Nemis).

THE PROCESS

The ministry said students will present their letters upon arrival for admission. The schools will then verify the existence of their names in the system.

Thereafter, the following process will be followed:

  1. Using a smartphone or computer, Principal or delegated person logs onto http://nemissystem.education.go.ke/ or http://nemis.education.go.ke/
  2. Go to tab learner.
  3. Click on Admit/process request.
  4. Enter index number on search UPI/INDEX space
  5. Click search.
  6. The details of the student will appear indicating that the student is selected to join the school. If the student is selected for your school, move to step 7.
  7. Click on Admit.
  8. The student can now proceed for processing in other steps of admission. Admission can only succeed if the learner is in the system account for the school.

In a statement on Sunday, Mr Kipsang said the printouts will serve as backups in case of internet connection challenges.

In such cases, he said, schools should use the list and immediately thereafter follow the steps above.
