On Monday the 17th of February, the KUCCPS Portal was opened after a press statement by the CEO of KUCCPS, Dr. John Muraguri. According to the press statement a total of 688,928 students were placed in tertiary institutions.
This is 10817 students less than the number of students who sat for KCSE 2019 representing a 98.45% placement.
125,449 who managed to score C+ and above were placed in universities while 563,479 who scored C, D, or E, were placed in Technical and Vocational Education Training institutions.
Meanwhile, all universities declared a total capacity of 193,878 which absorbed 100% of all qualified students. TVET institutions had a total capacity of 350,000 which could only absorb 62% of the students who scored between C and E.
However, the board noted that other TVET institutions were offering additional training opportunities which will absorb the remaining 38%.
The board indicated that the portal will be open until 9th March 2020 allowing the students to revise their placements and after which the portal will be closed.
