A few months ago,the cabinet secretary of education Prof George Mogoha released the results of the 2020 candadates. The cabinet secretary made it clear that all candidates will have an opportunity to join higher learning institutions. All students who scored a C+ and above will the kenyan Universities. The remaining students will join TVET , colleges and national polytechnics. He further directed the KUCCPS to move with speed and ensure all students are placed and given courses of their choice.
This morning, the Kuccps boss Agnes Wahome has confirmed that a total of 265,145 students who sat for their KCSE in March this year, have been selected to pursue different degree courses and TVET courses. The CEO has said that 128,073 secured degree courses while 137,072 have been placed to TVET courses.
The CS advised teachers to work closely with students and guide them based on what they are strong at, rather than focusing solely on pushing the students to get university admission.
According to the CS, some students have a desire to join the police service and defense forces, therefore, it is unfair to push them into joining universities, yet that is not what they want to do.
Universities and colleges are likely to experience a blow as over 700000 students are set to get admitted from next moth.
This mass inflow of students has send strong signals to the institutions making them to put more emphasis on sectors such as accomodation, and even the learning resources
The libraries to be expanded for better accommodation. Universities such as mount Kenya which is likely to have comparatively large number of new reporting students is therefore required to check on such improvements in advance so as to avoid several challenges after reporting.
