KUCCPS has already opened the student online portal for KCSE 2019 candidates to apply or revise for their preferred courses.
Students who had not applied during centre or school application between September 26, 2019 and December 31, 2019 can now apply for placement.
On the same hand, KCSE 2019 candidates who had applied during centre application can now revise their courses. This will enable them to choose courses that they meet minimum requirement, unlike during centre application, since KCSE result had not been released.
One amazing thing is that the procedure of applying for kuccps courses is simple and one can do it without necessarily seeking assistance. All you need to have is your KCPE index number and KCSE index number.
The deadline for first revision is on 9th March, 2020. Here are the minimum requirements for placement:
|Degree||C + (Plus)|
|Diploma||C – (Minus)|
|Craft Certificates||D (Plain)|
|Artisan Certificate||D – (Minus) and Below|
This means that all K.C.S.E. candidates are eligible for placement to Universities and Colleges under Government sponsorship at the applicable level.
