After the initial applications for degree and diploma courses by KCSE candidates towards the end of high school, students get a chance to do a first and second revision to their choices directly on the KUCCPS students portal. The CS for education on Monday officially launched the opening of the KUCCPS portal for the first revision and application for university and college placement for government sponsorship.
The KUCCPS application portal will run from 24th, May 2021 to 11th, June 2021. KUCCPS, on their website, invites all the KCSE candidates to apply or revise their courses and institution choices.
The government usually provides sponsorship to students who apply through the KUCCPS Placement service.
Minimum KCSE Mean Grade Requirements for Revision of Courses
KUCCPS has set the following minimum mean grade entry requirements for various course levels:
- Degree: C+
- Diploma: C- (minus)
- Craft Courses: (D)
- Artisan: E
The KCSE 2020 class with C+ and above have a chance to apply for placement in over 200,000 declared capacities in university for government sponsorship.
The rest, irrespective of the year, have a chance to apply for chances in over 400,000 government-sponsored slots in public TVET institutions.
How to Check KUCCPS Course Placement
Usually, at the end of the first course and institution revision exercise, KUCCPS will display the institution you have been placed right on their students portal.
Follow the steps below to know if you have been placed by the KUCCPS placement service:
Step 1: Log into KUCCPS students portal
- Log into the KUCCPS Students Portal: https://students.kuccps.net
You will require the following details to log successfully into the portal:
- KCSE Index Number: Full KCSE index number, usually 11 digits long
- KCSE Year: Year you sat for KCSE, eg 2020
- Password: Your birth certificate number or full KCPE index number.
- Press Enter or Login after keying in your correct details
Step 2: Check Course and Institution Placed
Immediately after being logged in, you will see a message congratulation message indicating the course and the institution you have been successfully placed in.
If you don’t see the message, after the first revision, you have a chance to revise your course choices again during the second revision.
The second revision normally coincides with the release of the first revision data.
Bear in mind that you do the second revision only if you have not been placed in any course.
What happens if you do not do course revision?
The placement service will check if you qualify for any of the choices you registered for towards the end of high school.
Priority is given to the first 3 choices (1a, 1b, 1c), and capacity declared by institutions per given course.
The Placement service may place you in any of the other remaining choices (2, 3, 4) depending on the popularity of the course in a given institution and cluster points.
If all the above cases fail, you may end up being placed in any other course that you qualify even if you never applied for it.
Step 3: Check and Download Admission Letters
After successfully being placed in your desired course and campus, the next remaining thing is to get access to the admission letter for your campus.
In this case, visit the website of the university or college you have been placed in and look for a link to download your admission letter.
You will have to log in to their portal by following the instructions given on their home page.
Change of Course and or Institution
At the end of the second revision exercise, KUCCPS normally opens their portal again to allow the placed students to transfer or change institutions or courses.
This applies to students who are satisfied with institutions and courses placed in.
You do not have to transfer your course or university if satisfied with your choices.
You will have to check the KUCCPs website from time to time so that this chance does not pass you.
