You will require the following details to login  successfully into the portal:

  1. KCSE Index Number: Full KCSE index number, usually 11 digits long
  2. KCSE Year: Year you sat for KCSE, eg 2020

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.

Priority is given to the first 3 choices (1a, 1b, 1c), and capacity declared by institutions per given course.

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 do not have to transfer your course or university if satisfied with your choices.

You will have to check the KUCCPs website from time to time so that this chance does not pass you
