The Country's body charged with administering the selection of KCSE students to public universities, has announced the date for the first revision of courses. All K.C.S.E examination candidates who scored a minimum aggregate of B Plain of 63 points and in addition, those female candidates who scored a minimum of B Plain of 61 points(JAB's affirmative action policy) in the 2011 K.C.S.E examination and may wish to revise their degree choices,are informed that the Joint Admissions Board Revision of degree choices will be carried out from Monday, May 14, to Thursday May 31, 2012.
This announcement was posted on JAB's revamped website(JAB). This year the revision of degree courses will be done online unlike the previous years when the tiresome exercise was carried out at provincial headquarters.
Of the 118,256 candidates who qualified to join public universities(C+ and above) only 41,879 will be selected to join and this is due to the limited spaces which are unfortunately determined by the facilities of individual universities. The cut-off point of B plain (63pts) is a derivative of the capacity of the individual universities and the general performance of the candidates.
|KCSE Year||Total Candidates||Total Qualified||Total Selected|
