The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) on Tuesday, March 7, maintained that it was yet to officially open the portal for applications for university courses.
In response to queries by the 2022 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) candidates, the agency revealed it was yet open the portal.
KUCCPS clarification came after a number of misleading reports indicated that the application for university courses was ongoing.
Further, the institution stated that it would announce the official dates on its website and its social media platforms.
The portal is not open for application at this time. Once the application dates are decided on, an announcement will be made through the KUCCPS website, our official social media pages and the mainstream media. Kindly keep it here for updates,” read the statement in part.
In regard to the available courses at the universities, KUCCPS added that it was yet to release the list of the courses and the cut-off points required for each course.
“A comprehensive list of courses and institutions will be availed during the application,” KUCCPS stated.
2022 KCSE students are yet to apply and revise their university degree courses despite the results being announced on January 20.
The delay saw a number of misleading reports to surface. On February 23, KUCCPS issued a statement clarifying that it had not raised the mean grade for joining university.
KUCCPS maintained that the minimum entry grade for a degree programme was C+ (plus) while diploma courses were put at C- (minus).
On his part, Education CS Ezekiel Machogu stated that the portal would be open soon to enable the 2022 KCSE candidates to join the university on time.
“Placement of university students is supposed to start anytime from now. I am waiting for you to come up with proposals particularly on financing and the other terms of reference as given by President William Ruto,” he stated then
