KUCCPS University Cut-off Points Reviewed as the Application Portal Opens
KUCCPS University Cut-off Points Reviewed as the Application Portal Opens. The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS), which places students in universities for the 2022 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE), made it clear that candidates would utilize the 2021 cut-off points on May 17.
The clarification was offered by KUCCPS in response to applicants’ objections regarding the site’s lack of availability of the 2022 cutoff points.
The placement agency highlighted that students should utilize the old cut-off points to direct their applications until they were ready to announce the new cut-off points.
“The 2022 cut-off will be made available upon placement,” the organization said. “In the interim, the 2021 cut-off will be used as a guide for application.
Educationhighlights.co.ke discovered that KUCCPS made the 2021 cut-off points for every university in every subject public.
For instance, the cut-off score for a law degree at the University of Nairobi was 42.348, whereas it was 42.036 at Kenyatta University.
For the degree in medicine and surgery, Maseno University established a cut-off point of 44.143, whereas Egerton University set a cut-off point of 43.749.
There are 20 clusters that encompass all of the degree programs at both public and private universities.
To find out the course cutoff dates for 2021, go to students.kuccps.net/programmes/ or enter the students portal and select the programs option.
On the other hand, it was indicated that students will have access to the calculated cluster points and course expected topic grades while choosing different courses.
A portion of the notification said, “Kindly login to your student portal, your weighted cluster points have already been calculated for you.”
According to KUCCPS, only individuals with a minimum grade of C +(plus) will be allowed to apply for degree programs in the universities.
The results of the 2022 KCSE show that only 173,345 students were able to achieve a grade of C or higher.
The official online launch of the KUCCPS application was made by Ezekiel Machogu, the education cabinet’s secretary.
In contrast to past apps, the placement agency has added new features to the website, like the cost of courses at different universities.
Candidates with grades below a C+ were urged by the CS to seek for positions in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET).
“Over 500,000 opportunities are available at our TVET institutes, and we are collaborating with similar organizations in countries like Germany and Hungary.
“I have instructed KUCCPS to work with Huduma Centre to ensure students apply from all regions of the country,” Machogu said.
