KUCCPS Call Upon 2021 KCSE Candidates To Revise Courses Before Deadline.
2021 KCSE candidates get green signal to review their course options.
The 2021 KCSE Candidates Who wish to review their university and college courses can do so from May.
Kenya University and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) CEO said that all the 2021 KCSE candidates will transition to institutions of higher learning.
She said that KUCCPS Application Portal will open in May. Candidates who had applied for courses at the school and wish to modify their choices will have the opportunity to make changes when the portal opens.
Dr. Wahome said that all 145,145 candidates who obtained the minimum university admission requirement of C+ and above will be offered places in public and private universities under government sponsorship.
The other Candidates who scored C and below will be eligible for government sponsorship in technical and vocational education and training (TVET) institutes, KUCCPS CEO said.
The KCSE exam results indicated that some 681,662 candidates scored between grades C (plain) and E.
Dr. Wahome said We would like to inform the public that modalities are being worked out to initiate the process of placing 2021 KCSE candidates in various degree and TVET courses for the 2022/2023 academic year.
However, she said that only those applying for placements in various universities and TVET institutions would be considered for placements and government sponsorship.
The placement service Portal was opened in March 2021 for the application exercise, under which principals were to submit candidates’ course choices in the KUCCPS portal.
This means that students whose schools failed to submit course applications will have to apply themselves after the service resumes.
In all, students have 18 options when applying. Of these, there are six options for degree courses, four for diploma programs and an equal number of options for craft certificate options. There are other four options available for Artisan Certificate courses.
For degrees, candidates are expected to list their preferred four courses in order of priority. The two-month application window is a wake-up call for teachers and parents, with some teachers failing to guide students through the selection.
