The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (Placement Service) has set the cut off point for admission to degree programmes at B of 60 points for male candidates and B- of 58 points for female candidates.
The cut-off procedure was agreed by representatives of Universities and Colleges during a workshop in April where it was decided that admissions will be based on available spots in Government institutions, merit and applicant choices.
“In addition, all candidates with a minimum overall grade of C- are eligible to apply for diploma programmes,” states the Placement Service which replaced the Joint Admissions Board back in February 2014.
Applicants who meet the cut off point set by the Placement Service for admission to degree programmes may in addition apply for diploma programmes of their choice.
But those below the degree cut off point but with a minimum of overall grade of C- may only apply for diploma programmes, following the procedure outlined in the Placement Service Website:
