Joint Admission Board,jab, Replaced by a New Body
University admissions will no longer be handled by the Joint Admission Board, JAB. In its place, there has been established a new body, the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service, KUCCPS. The new body will be tasked with overseeing admission of students into both private and public universities as well as middle level colleges.
Under this new arrangement, private university students will have the amount of loans they receive from the state increased. While JAB was tasked with admitting only government sponsored students into public universities, KUCCPS will be tasked with admitting all students into universities and middle level colleges.
