University course revision set to start on Monday

By Moses Ndung’u
The 2014 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) candidates are set to start online revision of courses on April 20, 2015. The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) website will open for the first revision of degree and diploma programmes for the 2015/2016 placement on April 20, 2015 and close on May 4, 2015.
Most of the KCSE candidates have been celebrating the decision reached by KUCCPS which outlined the cut-off for those who will join universities.The cut-off for male students was fixed at a grade B of 60 points and a B- of 58 points for female students. This is a point of advancement in the exam based curricular in Kenya.
According to Prof. Jacob Kaimenyi, 61,000 candidates will have the coveted opportunity of pursuing their higher education through the government sponsored regular programs.
In addition all KCSE candidates with a minimum overall grade of C- (Minus) and above and who have not benefited from government sponsorship in the past will be eligible to apply for Diploma courses.
According to analysts, this will enhance the public picture at large since not many students will be locked out of continuing with their education. This will also boost the morale of students since attaining a grade of B- for female students and a B for male students is not as unrealistic as it had happened where only top most cream students got the advantage.
This period is dedicated into giving the students adequate time to choose their courses. Applications will be done online by all applicants including those who had submitted their applications earlier through their respective schools and would wish to revise their choices. There will be no manual applications.
According to the CS Jacob Kaimenyi, only a marginal twelve percent of the students who sat for their KCSE will have to proceed to the next level of Education whereas the rest are to join polytechnics and other institutions of educational bridging.
