JAB Announces Cut-off Points for KCSE 2011


JAB, the country's body charged with allocation of courses to students in public universities, has announced the cut-off points for the KCSE 2011 candidates.

The Joint Admission Board has pegged the cut-off mark at a mean grade of B plain (63pts). However, due to its affirmative action policy, the cut-off mark for girls and the disabled will be a bit lower. The cut-off mark for girls has been set at a B plain of 61pts(two points lower) while that for candidates with disabilities is up to five points lower than the general cut-off as long as they have C+ and above.

Of the 118,256 candidates who qualified to join public universities(C+ and above) only 41,879 will be selected to join(Out of a total of 76,000 who applied to be considered for the selection). This is due to the limited spaces which are unfortunately determined by bed capacity of individual universities.

University of Nairobi takes the lion share of 4677 candidates. There are 31 universities and 24 colleges in the country.

The date for the first revision of courses has not been announced yet. JAB usually grants an opportunity for those who meet the cut-off points to revise their degree choices. This happens in specified provincial headquarters.(around June)

    1. You should keep checking the JAB website to check the course you applied for and whether you qualify for each by counter-checking with the latest cluster points(may rise during selection) The course one is slotten in may only be known after their website is updated.

    1. It is not a guarantee that they will remain the same during selection, it depends on that years performance. See this table as an example: University of Nairobi Cluster points
