Hope for 2019 KCSE Students as Government Announces Changes

All candidates who scored C+ and above in the 2019 KCSE exams will join universities, the placement agency announced Monday after a board meeting.

The decision ends the anxiety that hit students as the programme ran behind schedule due to the Education ministry’s delays in approving placement.

The Kenya Universities and Central Placement Service has announced that all KCSE 2019 candidates who attained entry grades to institutions of higher learning will benefit from government sponsorship.

This announcement brings to a close speculations that the Ministry of Education was pushing the government to raise cut-off points in a bid to sponsor a manageable number of students.

Consequently, KUCCPS has opened its online student portal for application and revision of courses with the process closing Monday, March 9, 2020, at 5.00 pm.

Application for KUCCPS placement involves several stages as detailedly explained below:

Stage 1: KUCCPS School/Centre Application

Stage 3: KUCCPS second revision 2020

Candidates who will not have qualified on competitive selection for any of their preferred choices during the first round of selection will be given a chance to do second revision by selecting courses with unfilled capacities.
