The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) is an independent government agency mandated to process placements to various institutions for artisan, certificate, and degree programs.
Students who sat for the 2020 KCSE examination and have applied for various courses and missed their choices in the first revision can now have the last chance to revise their choices.
Here is a simple step-by-step guide on how you can apply for KUCCPS University of college placement online and do your second revision of courses for 2021/2022 university placement.
