KUCCPS application 2024 – all you need to know

Last updated on March 7th, 2024 at 10:06 am

If you belong to the 2024 KCSE class, we have some good news: the KUCCPS application 2024 is on-going!

You should therefore log into your KUCCPS students portal and complete your kuccps online application 2024 (or first revision) as soon as possible.

That is because the portal will only be open for 3 weeks after which it will slam shut until the next revision window.

Of course, once you receive your KCSE results, it is important to make sure you revise/apply for your most preferred course early enough as this can enhance your chances of being placed in the course of your dreams.

This is both for students who have qualified for admission to the university (those with a mean grade of C+ and above) and those who intend to join TVET colleges.

Remember that final placement to courses will be done according to your choice of institution, available places, and the cut-off marks set for the course.

Needless to say, the course level you apply for is dependent on your KCSE grade.

Specifically, your grade can qualify you for the following course levels:

  • For Artisan Courses (in TVET colleges), the minimum grade is E.
  • For Craft Courses (again in TVET colleges in Kenya), the minimum grade is D (D plain) meaning anybody who has a grade below D plain should apply for an artisan course of choice.
  • For Diploma Courses (again in TVET colleges in Kenya), the minimum grade is C- (C Minus) meaning you should apply for a craft course of choice if you had a D+.
  • For Degree Courses (in Kenya universities), the minimum grade is C+ (C plus).

You should also consider your priorities, passion, and interests when selecting a course.
