Finally the 2020 candidates will now get to know their universities of choice after the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) has announced the date when the 2021/2022 placement results will be released.
According to the latest report from this body, the 2021/2022 placement results will be released by 15th August, 2021.
In that report Kuccps has revealed that the result will be processed for the next few weeks after the conclusion of the revision of choices on July 23, 2021 for those who applied for placement to local universities and colleges.
How to Check KUCCPS Course Placement 2021
Usually, at the end of the first course and institution revision exercise, KUCCPS will display the institution you have been placed right on their students portal.
This involves the placement body sending message directly to the phone number of an applicant. Remember that during application for placement of courses, one is required to add mobile phone number in personal information.
Step 1: Log into KUCCPS students portal
- Log into the KUCCPS Students Portal: https://students.kuccps.net
You will require the following details to login successfully into the portal:
- KCSE Index Number: Full KCSE index number, usually 11 digits long
- KCSE Year: Year you sat for KCSE, eg 2020
- Password: Your birth certificate number or full KCPE index number.
- Press Enter or Login after keying in your correct details
Step 2: Check Course and Institution Placed
Immediately after being logged in, you will see a message congratulation message indicating the course and the institution you have been successfully placed in
If you don’t see the message, after the first revision, you have a chance to revise your course choices again during the second revision.
The second revision normally coincides with the release of the first revision data.
Bear in mind that you do the second revision only if you have not been placed in any course.
What happens if you do not do course revision?
The placement service will check if you qualify for any of the choices you registered for towards the end of high school.
The Placement service may place you in any of the other remaining choices (2, 3, 4) depending on the popularity of the course in a given institution and cluster points
If all the above cases fail, you may end up being placed in any other course that you qualify even if you never applied for it.
Step 3: Check and Download Admission Letters
After successfully being placed in your desired course and campus, the next remaining thing is to get access to the admission letter for your campus.
In this case, visit the website of the university or college you have been placed in and look for a link to download your admission letter.
You will have to log in to their portal by following the instructions given on their home page.
Change of Course and or Institution
At the end of the second revision exercise, KUCCPS normally opens their portal again to allow the placed students to transfer or change institutions or courses.
This applies to students who are satisfied with institutions and courses placed in.
You will have to check the KUCCPs website from time to time so that this chance does not pass you
