KCSE 2022 C+ Students
KCSE 2022 C+ Students. 70,088 students who scored a C+ on the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams in 2022 suffer a setback from the government after a recent proposal.
The University Fund has previously reported that the state lacked the funds to support all eligible undergraduate degree candidates.
The technique the state will use to support college students was disclosed by University Fund Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Geoffrey Monari on Saturday, February 25, during the Universities Financing Conference in Mombasa.
“We won’t base placement on how much money is on hand in the state coffers.
Everyone who received a C+ or higher would be placed in a university through the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS), according to Monari.
While everyone will receive a university placement, Monari continued, there won’t be a clear correlation between that and university money like there has in the past.
The CEO said, “We are going to fund based on the available cash.”
To be considered for State financing, students with grades of C+ and higher must submit new applications through the KUCCPS portal.
Students will now be responsible for paying for their university education if they are unsuccessful but want to accept their internships.
Monari had already suggested during the conference that funding for universities be based on merit, the degree of need, national priorities, and affirmative action.

Out of 70,088 students who received a C+, 30,088 will not receive financial aid for college under the government’s proposed standards.
According to the recommendation of President William Ruto’s task force on education, students who lose out on government sponsorship will have to pay Ksh48,000 every semester for their undergraduate degree studies.
The decision by Vice Chancellors at the conference to let individual universities set tuition rates rather than having the Ministry of Education do so means that the sum will also likely grow.
This was one of many policies that were put in place to aid with the funding of colleges who were heavily indebted.
Universities also introduced short professional courses, leased out space, built enterprises on vacant property, and leased out buildings. This is focused to raise more in come for the university’s expenses such as salaries.
