    Additionally, students seeking to make applications to join Teachers Training Colleges (TTCs) will be able to use the platform for the first time after KUCCPS added the placement of TTCs to the portal.

    "KUCCPS will add value to TTC admission by utilising its automated placement system to guarantee fair competition among applicants.

    "Affirmative action will also be applied to benefit applicants with disabilities and those from marginalized regions," she stated.

    The placement body has announced over 546 degree programs with an additional 218 college courses and 114 certificate courses.

    How To Apply

    Students are required to pay Ksh500 to open an account with the assistance of their teachers and school administrators.

    Upon visiting the placement portal, candidates will register for the programs after inserting their KCSE index numbers, KCSE year, and creating a password.

    Additionally, applicants are advised to use their KCSE index numbers or birth certificate numbers as their initial passwords.

    "Use Your Birth Certificate No. / KCPE Index No (as used in KCSE Exam Registration) as your Initial Password," read a statement in the KUCCPS application portal.

    However, candidates will be allowed to make revisions to the courses in May after the results are announced with placements slated to begin in June.
