# Kuccps weighted Cluster Points Calculation- Simplified Formula

Wondering how you can calculate your Kuccps cluster points? Worry no more. Here is a simplified guide on how to calculate your weighted Kuccps cluster points.

## What are kuccps cluster points?

Weighted cluster points are a KCSE examination graduate’s computed performance in four subjects required for admission to a given degree programme against that of the best candidates in the particular KCSE examination year.

Keep in mind that it is based on cluster subject requirements and the overall performance of a candidate.

Now, the points are computed to three decimal places to reduce chances of applicants tying on points.

In essence, cut-off points are the weighted cluster points of the last competitively placed student in a given degree programme.

## How to calculate cluster points – kuccps weighted cluster points simplified formula

the formula to calculate cluster Points for various KUCCPS courses is given below:

C=[√ (r/R* t/T)]*48 Where r -sum of 4 cluster sbj R=48 t – your grade pts T=84 ### Applying the kuccps weighted cluster points formula – simplified step by step guide

1. Take the sum of points in the 4 subjects considered in whatever course you wish to take then divide by 48( maximum points in those 4 subjects)…
2. Take your total points divide by 84, e.g 72/84….
3. Multiply answer A by answer B then get the squareroot of the product…
4. Multiply the squareroot you get in (C) above by 48, that gives the weighted cluster points.

or =[√ (r/R* t/T)]*48 Where r -sum of 4 cluster sbj R=48 t – your grade pts T=84

Note: The sign * means multiplication
