NEW MINIMUM UNIVERSITY ENTRY GRADE. Prior to Kuccps placements, the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) maintained a “C+” as the minimum entry mark for a university degree.
Parents and students are concerned that the minimal grade needed for admission to an institution will rise as a result of the KCSE 2022 class’s performance.
The minimum entry standard for universities was met by 145,145 candidates who completed the KCSE Exam in 2021 with grades of C+ or higher.
REMARKS BY KUCCPS ON UNIVERSITY SPACE, APPLICATION, AND LOCATION
Universities now have enough room to house all of the students, according to KUCCPS Chief Executive Officer Dr. Agnes Wahome.
“I am conscious that there are many concerns regarding the availability of space for students who are qualified to enroll in colleges. The instructor assured the crowd that there wouldn’t be any lockouts and nothing to be concerned about.
She made the remarks at Kangaru Boys High School in Embu County on Saturday during a conference on mentoring for young people in the region.
During the employment guidance and mentorship session, details on the KUCCPS application and placement procedures were provided.
Dr. Wahome advised pupils to register for classes as soon as the KUCCPS portal is available.
She remarked that they should begin submitting their applications and that we have the capacity to accept anyone who meets the university’s admission criteria.
However, Dr. Wahome urged the applicants who did not want to attend a school to enroll in TVETs and sign up for diploma programs.
There are many institutions where students can enroll in courses that will help them achieve their objectives. She advised parents to let their children follow their interests and make their own choices.
Participants included KCSE candidates, current university and college students (comrades), workers from Embu County, local leaders, and government officials.
