Some 54,833 students have been allocated degree and diploma courses of their choice by the placement agency.

This means that of the 74,389 students who sat the 2015 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE), about 19,556 students will have to revise their course programmes starting tomorrow. Kenya University and Colleges Placement Service (KUCCPS) will now open its online application system for the second and final revision tomorrow midnight and will close on June 18 at midnight.

The Placement Service Board had declared capacities for degree programmes under Government sponsorship, and the performance analysis of the 2015 KCSE examination results. It set the cut-off point for placement to degree programmes at B of 60 points for male and B- of 58 points for female candidates.

All 2015 KCSE and previous years' candidates with a minimum grade of C– (Minus) and above and have not benefited from Government sponsorship in the past are eligible to apply for diploma programmes.

"The online application system opens for the second and final revision on Thursday June 9, 2016 at 0000hrs and will close on Saturday June 18, 2016 at midnight," the advert partly read.

The application is open for all 2015 candidates who, on competitive selection, have not been placed for any of their degree or diploma course after the first revision. According to the placement service, the index numbers of the candidates who have not been placed can be downloaded from its website.

Candidates whose index numbers do not appear in the website have already been successfully placed in one of their choices and will be informed at the end of June after the selection process is completed. The degree and diploma programmes with unfilled capacities are also listed on the website.

Candidates who had paid revision fees during application and during first revision will not be required to pay for the second revision.
