KUCCPS Gives Reasons as to Why it has not Opened the Course Application Portal
KUCCPS Gives Reasons as to Why it has not Opened the Course Application Portal. There have been complaints regarding the length of time it has taken for the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) course application portal to open.
This is due to the fact that in 2022, over 880,000 pupils registered to take the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam.
There are a number of reasons why KUCCPS has not yet activated its portal, including the following:-
- The KCSE 2022 students’ test results, which were taken from the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) database, have not yet been added to the KUCCPS database.
- Due to the challenging economic climate and the high rate of inflation in the nation. There are concerns that public and private universities and colleges might not have enough funding to support their students financially.
- Additionally, there have been rumors that the KUCCPS may increase the minimum KCSE entrance requirements for university admission through the CUE.
The Commission for University Education (CUE) and the Technical and Vocational Education and Training Authority (TVETA), according to education expert Dr. Wahome, should work together to make sure that all institutions are prepared to accept new students.
Application Portal for KUCCPS 2023
If the potential reasons for the delay are addressed to ensure a seamless and effective enrollment process, the KUCCPS Course application portal is anticipated to be opened in late May or early June 2023, giving students plenty of time to select their courses and make any necessary adjustments.
Clarification of Cut-Off Points by KUCCPS
The minimal grade needed for admission to a university has not been changed from C+ to B, according to recent clarification from KUCCPS.
There were allegations that the ‘new rules’ placed the required score for male students to join university at 62 while the required score for female students was 61.
An unidentified person published the prank at first on Facebook. According to the user, it was sent by the organization in charge of placing college students.
On its official Twitter account, the placement firm vehemently refuted the charges. They were labeled as being false information.
