All the 2020 KCSE candidates will get places at Universities, after all. This ends the speculations that the Government was planning to change the minimum entry grade to university from the normal C+ (plus). The process of placing the 2020 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) Candidates into higher institutions of learning has been started.

The candidates will now be able to know their courses and higher learning institutions they will join. The Process will be carried out by the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS).

Education Cabinet Secretary, Professor George Magoha, on Monday 24th May, launched the selection process at the Joseph Kangethe primary school in Nairobi. Over 143,149 candidates who scored the minimum university entry grade of (C+, plus and above) will secure a slot in both private and public universities under the government-sponsored programme.

The candidates with C+ (plus) and above will now jostle for the available vacancies and courses in universities. Of these; 893 scored A (plain), 6,420 had A- (minus) while, 14,427 garnered grade B+ (plus). Others were: 25,207 (B plain), 38,194 (B- minus) and 57,999 (C+ plus).

CS George Magoha says the TVET system and Universities have places for all the 747,171 candidates who sat for the 2020 KCSE exams.

Other KCSE 2020 candidates, who will not make it for the degree courses, will be placed in colleges and TVET institutions.
