KUCCPS Raises Concern over 15000 Students for Failed to Apply for Placement
KUCCPS Raises Concern over 15000 Students for Failed to Apply for Placement. Over 15,000 students who passed the secondary school exams last year and are thus eligible to enroll in universities have not yet submitted their placement applications as of Thursday night.
The application window’s last day for revisions and applications, per the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS), is Saturday at midnight.
Dr. Agnes Mercy Wahome, the Chief Executive Officer of Kuccps, reported that 157498 students had applied in total for placement.
Additionally, according to information, 173,127 students passed the 2022 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education Examination with an average grade of C+ or higher.
According to Kuccps, all of the pupils listed above were granted direct admission to university.
The placement body also disclosed that 9% of candidates were non-applicants this year. This is a change from the 10% of candidates who did not apply for placement in 2022.
The final placement information regarding the courses and colleges that candidates will enroll in starting in September of this year will be compiled and distributed by the placement authority.
According to Dr. Mercy Wahome, the placement results will be made public by the end of July, giving parents at least a month to make preparations and students time to submit financial applications.
Applications will be started by the many students who want to enroll in diploma, certificate, and trades courses.
