Thousands of students who failed to secure KUCCPS placement during the first revision of courses are expected to reapply for KUCCPS 2020/2021 choices by Wednesday April 15, 2020.
The first revision of KUCCPS courses took place between February 2020 and ended on March 9.
The second revision of KUCCPS courses will take place between April 2, 2020 and April 15, 2020.
Around 45, 000 whose KCSE index numbers have been listed on the KUCCPS website are expected to re-apply for KUCCPS 2020/2021 placement.
This is after the 45, 000 students failed to get selected by the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service, KUCCPS during the first revision of KUCCPS 2020/2021 choices.
KUCCPS on Tuesday March 31, 2020 announced that the KUCCPS online system will be open for the second revision of courses for the close to 45, 000 applicants who failed to secure any of their choices for placement to universities and colleges on a competitive basis.
KUCCPS Second Revision of choices deadline
Speaking to The Daily Nation, KUCCPS CEO John Muraguri said that the 45, 000 applicants should revise their degree, diploma and certificate courses between Thursday April 2, 2020 and Wednesday, April 15, 2020.
“The second revision will open for applicants who, on a competitive selection after the first revision of choices, have not secured any of their choices for placement to universities and colleges” said KUCCPS chief executive officer Dr. John Muraguri.
The KCSE index numbers of the applicants required to reapply for KUCCPS 2020/2021 placement are available on the KUCCPS website which can be accessed using the link below
Dr. Muraguri also called out principals of secondary schools whose former students’ index numbers have been listed on the KUCCPS website to inform the affected students so that they can revise their choices before the deadline which has been set on Wednesday, April 15, 2020.
Those who did not apply for KUCCPS 2020/2021 placement while in school and hence missed the first revision of courses are advised to seek for KUCCPS placement during this window period.
KUCCPS Help desks
During the first revision of KUCCPS 2020/2021 choices, the placement body set up help desks across Kenya to help the students revise their choices with ease.
It is however unfortunate for the 45, 000 applicants this time around since the KUCCPS help desks have been shut down following coronavirus outbreak in Kenya.
Just like any other institution in Kenya, KUCCPS is enforcing the rule of social distancing. Therefore all KUCCPS Huduma center desks remain closed to the public.
The good news is, all is not lost. The applicants can apply for KUCCPS’s second revision of courses via the KUCCPS App available on Play store or through the KUCCPS students’ portal.
The applicants are expected to select and reapply for new choices- degree, diploma and craft/artisan certificate courses with unfilled capacities.
The list of courses with unfilled capacities has also been listed on the KUCCPS website and submit them afresh.
The total capacity of both private and public universities in 2020 is 600, 000 students.
Bachelor of Education remains the most popular course among students, receiving the highest number of applications followed by Bachelor of Commerce and Pharmacy.
Other marketable courses include Bachelor of Arts, Quantity surveying, Architectural Studies and law.
Bachelor of Electrical and Electronics Engineering and medicine close the list of top 10 popular courses in Kenya.
Medicine, Pharmacy, Architecture, Economics and Engineering are the most preferred courses by the top performers in KCSE exams in Kenya.
