Greatest Mistakes Students Do While Selecting University Courses Revealed

The first university revision deadline came to a close a few weeks ago. However, according to the Kenya University and College Central Placement Service not all students selected courses.

This might be due to limited time and financial requirements. The portal was open for about 10 days to allow students apply for various courses in different higher learning institutions.

The students were allowed to choose from degree, diploma, certificate and artisan programmes depending on one's KCSE qualifications.Today while addressing the media the Kuccps CEO, Agness Wahome has stated that students who wouldn't be placed in universities or colleges will be given another chance to select courses in other institutions.

She again advised students who will miss out on their favourite courses in their favourite institutions will have a chance to pursue the courses through self- sponsored programmes.

This has also raised questions if the government is ready to sponsor all the qualified students certain courses. This indicates that the courses are still there but the government is not ready to support large numbers of entrants in certain courses.

The CEO also gave a critical observation about the selection process whereby she said that some students choose universities rather than courses. This move has led many students missing placements.

The system will always give priority to those students with highest qualifications. So she advised learners to choose courses in universities where they can face less competition. Students to focus solely on pursuing their dreams instead of learning institutions.
