144,466 Candidates With C plus and above to apply for degree programmes

144,466 Candidates With C plus and above to apply for degree programmes in 70 universities

The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) has been directed by the Ministry of Education to open its systems to allow applications for University and College placement as well as revision of choices.

Prof. George Magoha, Cabinet Secretary for Education, has ordered that the portal be open for the next two weeks, until June 2, so that students can apply or revise their university and college choices.

Magoha made the announcement today after rescuing six students from the Kiandutu slums in Thika, who will be admitted to Thika Girls High School, Karibaribi High School, and Chania Boys High School.

The CS also encouraged students to apply to Technical, Vocational Training Institutions (Tvets), where they could gain hands-on experience for the job market.

“All 144,466 Kenyan children who attained the Grade of C plus and above are eligible to apply for a degree programme in 70 universities. However, I encourage those who are intelligent to apply for Tvets,” he said.

He invited the 671,000 students who are eligible for Diploma and Craft certificate courses to apply for admission to the country’s 191 government institutions.

The CS urged students not to glorify university education, claiming that Tvets provided opportunities to equip them with job-demand skills.

“Every Kenyan thinks university education is the big thing in getting a job, which has not been the case. If you are intelligent enough, apply for Tvet education. Like last year, we had over 6,000 who had applied,” he said.

He revealed that KUCCPs will admit students to 32 government primary teacher training colleges for the first time, and he encouraged non-citizens to apply.
