A total of 870,561 KCSE candidates were eligible for placement in universities and colleges across the country.

Out of these, 285,167 candidates successfully secured places in degree, diploma, craft certificate, and artisan courses in 282 different training institutions.


For degree programs, 130,485 candidates secured placement in public universities, while 9,622 candidates were placed in private universities.

This accounts for approximately 80% of the 173,238 candidates who qualified for degree programs.

Furthermore, a significant number of candidates, precisely 144,500, were successfully placed in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions, while an additional 560 candidates secured placements in secondary teacher training colleges.

An interesting trend observed during the placement process was that 9,673 candidates who qualified for degree courses opted to join TVET institutions instead.

He also urged those who did not secure placements to explore alternative opportunities, including reapplication for the next placement cycle or considering other vocational training programs.

To check their individual placement details, candidates can send their KCSE Index to the shortcode 20842.


Alternatively, the information is available at the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) portal.
