Many KCSE 2023 Candidates Miss preferred Courses in University Placements
Many KCSE 2023 Candidates Miss preferred Courses in University Placements. Numerous 2022 Candidates who were admitted to universities after passing the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam were turned down for admission to their selected degree programs and must now apply for alternative courses.
According to data from the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS), 32,718 candidates who achieved a mean grade of C+ or higher were not placed in any of the choices they made for a variety of reasons.
They will, however, have another chance to change their choices to reflect their grades. According to their overall performance, individual performance, and the capacity that is available, candidates are positioned. There are minimum course requirements for all degrees that vary by college.
According to KUCCPS, 10,707 additional students with grades of C+ or higher did not apply for placement or financial help. Convicts and non-citizens were not eligible for placement; only Kenyan citizens were.
2023 dates for the second revision
The chief executive officer of KUCCPS, Dr. Agnes Mercy Wahome, stated, “We’re letting those who haven’t been placed make a second revision because we don’t want to leave anyone out who is qualified to go to university.” She continued by saying that individuals who failed to submit an admissions application would be discovered. She said that 94,275 applicants had already registered for their preferred degree programs.
They can now view their notifications by logging into their student accounts. The message will only mention that the applicant was chosen as one of their top four options. Information on the classes will be accessible once each student has been placed in one.
The availability of the second degree option modification will start on June 16 and finish on July 5.
Students had a choice of 546 degree programs offered by 38 public institutions, their linked colleges, 33 private universities, and 33 colleges. Instead of pursuing degrees, some students choose to enroll in technical and vocational education and training (TVET) programs.
private higher education institutions
The students will go to different universities. Of the 142,540 candidates for placement, 131,833 (92.5%) had already applied to their top programs at local public and private institutions as well as TVETs.
A C+ or higher was received altogether by 143,140 candidates, or more than the 125,747 who passed in 2019. In May, the results were announced. Of the candidates, 893 scored a “A,” 6,420 a “A-,” 14,427 a “B plus,” 38,194 a “B-,” and 57,999 a “C plus.”
Most students submitted their applications for placement before the tests, but when the portal was open for review last month, they changed their minds in light of their results.
A Second Course Revision’s Cost
Each applicant must pay Sh1,500 for the application review. The 11 Huduma centers and universities all around the country both receive services from KUCCPS. Many colleges have help desks that can help students.
Applicants who want to enroll in Tvet courses can apply for placement in diploma, craft, or artisan programmes using the KUCCPS site. Government support for Tvets has been substantial, but uptake has been slow.
