Form One Selection 2024 is a special procedure for selecting students who have passed the seventh grade to continue with secondary education in government secondary schools. This selection is done by the National Examinations Council of Tanzania in collaboration with TAMISEMI, and the main criterion used for this selection is performance in the National Standard Seven Exam.
For students who did not perform well in these exams, they will not have the opportunity to join government schools, so parents are advised to look for places for their children in private schools. However, for students who, due to competition and the limited availability of these spots, miss out on government school places, parents are also advised to seek educational opportunities in private schools so their children can continue with secondary education.
Every year, after the announcement of the Standard Seven results (PSLE), NECTA announces the names of students selected to join Form One for the year 2024. For the year 2023, NECTA expects to announce these names early in December, before schools open, to give parents enough time to prepare the necessary requirements for students who will be selected to join Form One in 2024. Through this guide, you will be able to know how to view or find out if your child has been selected to join Form One for the year 2024. Please read on to understand in detail, step by step, how to view the form one selection and how to download the Form One joining instructions.
