KUCCPS Last Message to All KCSE 2022 Candidates
KUCCPS Last Message to All KCSE 2022 Candidates. Students can amend their university and college preferences or apply for placements through the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) until Wednesday of the following week.
The gateway that was activated on May 17 will be closed on Wednesday to allow the agency to simulate.
Students will be assigned to programs based on their performance and the resources that higher education institutions have available.
The portal will be reopened for the second revision from June 19 through June 30. The possibility to reapply will be given to students who did not get into their top-choice programs or institutions.
After another one-week simulation, the third and final revision will then be available for viewing on the portal from July 10 to July 14.
On August 9, students will discover their placement following a final simulation. According to KUCCPS director Dr. Agnes Mercy Wahome, 90% of students who are qualified for university entrance apply for placement.
155,000 of the 173,127 students who received a C+ or higher on the KCSE in 2022 are expected to apply and accept their places, according to the organization.
The application procedure is significantly different this year as a result of the new funding arrangement.
By forgoing capitation payments to universities in favor of directly paying students through a combination of scholarships, loans, and bursaries, the government has abandoned the differentiated unit cost paradigm in the new system.
All institutions taking part in the centralized placement have disclosed the price of all of their programs on the KUCCPS site so that students can assess the cost their families will have to bear.
Universities must entice students. The courses must also be connected to the job market.Our ultimate objective is to fund college education with 80% loans and 20% scholarships, according to Dr. Wahome. “We want to fund loans with additional money.
Students from less financially struggling homes would have to pay more for their university education under the new funding plan since those who are most in need will be given full government loans, scholarships, and bursaries.
The initiative aims to fundamentally alter how the government finances higher education by substituting student loans backed by a revolving fund and scholarships for automatic grants.
The plan will be implemented by collaboration between three higher education-related organizations. These include the KUCCPS, the Higher Education Loans Board, and the Universities Fund.
