Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service, popularly known as KUCCPS recently unveiled a precise formula to help students compute their score cluster points.

The calculation came in response to frequent inquiries on how to calculate cluster points. Figuring weight clusters is fundamental for KUCCPS placement and admissions to Kenyan Universities.

KUCCPS held a collaborative meeting in January this year to analyze and decide on /2020 student placement in public universities.

The formula for calculating KUCCPS cluster points is now more simplified than before making it adaptable for most parts.

Government sponsored students can now determine their cluster points and qualification for various programs offered in different parts of the country with ease.

The board carefully considered the number of available slots in Kenyan universities about the results recorded for KCSE in the past year.

In essence, all the students who scored a minimum of 46 points equivalent to C+ are now eligible to enroll for university studies in public universities under government sponsorship.

KUCCPS online portal now contains an array of resources for students to calculate cluster points for jab admission.

These materials are particularly helpful in helping potential candidates to make informed career choices and further their career aspirations.

Further, the calculation is essential for students who scored a minimum of 32 points in 2018 KCSE national examination.

As self-sponsored students, this category is equally eligible for places in private and public universities.

Similarly, those students who attained 18 points and above will join tertiary institutions for craft certificate courses.
