Students get more time to revise courses

By Augustine Oduor | Jul 4th 2014 | 1 min read

The deadline for applicants to revise courses for universities and colleges has been extended by one week.

The Kenya Universities and Colleges Placement Service acting chief executive officer, John Muraguri, said qualified students should revise their courses by July 11. The deadline was previously July 4.

Muraguri also said Kibabii and Kagumo teachers training colleges had now been registered and would admit diploma students.

He said the decision to extend the deadline by one week was arrived at after learning that many qualified students had not received the information.

"We also wanted to give these two colleges a chance to admit diploma students," said Muraguri.

He said the two institutions had previously not been registered due to technical hitches.

Muraguri said the final selection was only open to students who were not placed in the first selection process.

KUCCPS is a creation of Universities Act and it replaces the Joint Admissions Board.

The new agency is expected to co-ordinate the placement of the "government sponsored" students to universities and colleges.
