The Ministry of education has issued a clarification on 2021 form one admission letters downloads. This after claims emerged that parents should not download the 2021 form one admission letters if they are not be satisfied with the schools where their kids have been placed.

The Ministry has termed the message as being ‘fake news’ and misleading.

Here is the message that has now been quashed by the Education Ministry;

“Kindly if you are looking for an alternative school for your child, DO NOT PRINT THE LETTER FOR THE SCHOOL YOUR CHILD HAS BEEN ADMITTED TO. Once you download the admission letter, it is assumed in the system that you are taking the offer.

Someone from Ministry of Education has shared that information.”

Meanwhile, the Ministry has urged the parents to download their letters in readiness for the 2021 form one reporting dates.
