KUCCPS Sends This Crucial Message to 2023 KCSE Candidates
KUCCPS Sends This Crucial Message to 2023 KCSE Candidates. The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) has issued a call for Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) candidates for 2023, urging them to remain vigilant and stay abreast of information related to university and college applications.
Although KUCCPS acknowledged that the application portal is yet to be opened, it assured that details regarding the application process will be disseminated through their official platforms in the coming days.
To stay informed, candidates have been advised to follow KUCCPS online platforms including the official website (www.kuccps.ac.ke), X (formerly Twitter) (@kuccps_official) and Facebook (The.Placement.Service). The announcement highlighted KUCCPS’ commitment to supporting students to access courses across universities, colleges and technical and vocational education and training (TVET) institutions.
KUCCPS noted the concerns of potential applicants based on the delays in the application process in the previous year and addressed these issues in the notice. The announcement followed shortly after Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu released the 2023 KCSE results which revealed that 201,133 students achieved an average grade of C+ and above. The results further detailed the distribution of grades, ranging from C to E.
While it remains uncertain whether university and college admission requirements will change due to the new grading system used in last year’s exams, CS Machogu stressed that the reform aims to increase the availability of required courses at various tertiary institutions. He noted that the new rating system was designed to be less restrictive and in line with President William Ruto’s established funding model.
The reform is expected to enable more students to pursue preferred courses, including university, diploma and TVET training at various levels. KUCCPS was focused on educating 2023 candidates about the assessment system and associated funding model, ensuring a smoother transition for applicants.
