Kenya Universities and College Placement Services (KUCCPS) led by Chief Executive Officer,Agnes Mercy Wahome, has allowed the admission of students who scored a mean grade of C+ prior to the year 2016.
The move would also allow the studentsto benefit from funding like Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) and other government funds.
Prior to 2016,the Joint Admissions Board (JAB) which was succeeded by KUCCPS placed students who scored a mean grade of B (plain) to public universities and in other cases like disability or disadvantaged students were allowed to join universities with a mean grade of B (minus).
This move made those who scored C (+) and were left out to join universities under the self-sponsored programmes while others opting to join Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions.
This move also disadvantaged those who scored C (+) but could not afford scr fees for self sponsored programmes.
