Students should focus more on the course and what it offers rather than on the choice of university. According to KUCCPS, applicants should apply for courses at higher education institutions where they face less competition.
The Central Placement Service of Universities and Colleges of Kenya (KUCCPS) has set June 22 as the new date for the second review of degree and diploma courses for applicants to KCSE 2021.
The new date gives students the opportunity to review the courses they have selected and make any necessary changes they prefer.
In the announcement, KUCCPS CEO Agnes Wahome encouraged KCSE applicants to consider revising the programs they had previously chosen during the second phase of the review.
Ms. Wahome said that during the review, students should focus more on the course and what it offers rather than on the choice of university. She added that applicants should apply for courses at higher education institutions where they would face less competition.

“One of the biggest mistakes students make when selecting programs is to consider college choice before class. In our experience, the challenge is more often to select the high demand courses at highly desirable universities. If a student is serious about taking a course, we encourage them to apply to universities where they are likely to face less competition, ”Ms. Wahome said.
Over the years, the placement service has always given applicants who qualify for university and college programs to review the courses they have chosen in two phases, the first review and the second review.
The first review for 2021 applicants began on Wednesday April 7 and ended on Friday April 16.
The purpose of the first review allows students to revisit their favorite courses while still allowing new applicants to apply for a KUCCPS placement.

When the first revision was announced, the boss of KUCCP encouraged students to opt for higher education institutions where they would be equipped with the necessary skills.
“We have opportunities but very few are ready to seize them. This is a nationwide problem where you will rarely find a young person committed to vocational training, ”she said.
Speaking to NationMs. Wahome added that applicants who do not participate in the program have the option to pursue their preferred course as self-sponsored students.
