The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service, KUCCPS, has released new cutoff points to be used in admitting KCSE students to universities and Colleges during the 2021/2022 selection and admission process. Various universities have revised their cluster points cutoffs upwards.

According to KUCCPS, the column with 2019 cutoff points for various degree, certificate and diploma programmes will be used to select the students to universities and colleges (see table below).

Before proceeding to undertake a teaching Course it is important to check if you meet the minimum Teachers Service Commission (TSC) requirements for registration and recruitment of teachers. The posts below will be of great assistance;

Factors to consider before choosing an education course

Before settling on any teaching combination, it is necessary for you to do a thorough background research and consultations. Some of the main considerations that you must consider include:

  • Cluster points requirements: Various universities have different cluster points requirements for the same course. Therefore, before settling on a university to join for the teaching course, check its minimum cluster requirements in the table below.
  • Subject requirements: Apart from cluster requirements, the education degree choices have different subject requirements. Check the latest subject requirements for Bachelor of Education Science and Arts Courses in the table below.
  • Ease of employment upon graduation: Some subject combinations are currently flooded. If you qualify for a teaching combination that is less flooded, then you should rather take it immediately.
  • Available Capacity: It is also important to know the course capacities per university. This will enable you make an informed decision on the university to join.
