15,000 students yet to apply for University placement have until Saturday.
More than 15,000 students who qualified for university admission have not submitted their applications, the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) Chief Executive Mercy Wahome has said.
In a statement dated Wednesday, July 6, KUCCPS said a total of 157,498 students who attained a mean grade of C+ and above have applied, out of the 173,127 who qualified for university admission.
KUCCPS says the application portal will close on Saturday, July 8. Those yet to apply can do so by then.
“As the final selection phase gets underway, previous applicants can confirm if they have secured a course by checking if their student’s portal displays a message indicating if they have secured a chance provisionally or not,” Wahome stated.
“Any candidate who has secured a provisional placement is not required to reapply. Those who have secured courses should wait for KUCCPS to complete the placement process after which they will be provided with details of their courses and institutions, by September 2023,” said KUCCPS.
Due to competition in some courses, KUCCPS further said that some applicants did not qualify since the placement is done on merit.
