The Board of the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) held its 28th meeting on 17th January 2018 to discuss the 2018/2019 placement of Government-sponsored students to Universities and Colleges.

After considering the analysis of the 2017 KCSE Examination Results together with the maximum available capacities in Kenyan Universities and Colleges, the Board resolved that:


All 2017 KCSE candidates who scored a minimum aggregate grade of C of 46 points shall be eligible for placement to both public and private universities to pursue degree courses under Government sponsorship.

Calculating the Weighted Cluster Point

The following formula is used to calculate the weighted cluster point:

w = Weighted Cluster Point
= Raw Cluster Point
a = Aggregate Cluster Point

Here is a sample of a table with precalculated Weighted Cluster Points based on the formula above.

With this table, simply match your Basic Aggregate points on the Verticle Axis and your Raw Cluster points for a given course on the Horizontal Axis and read the Weighted Cluster Point at their intersection.

Please note that this might not be the same formula applied to arrive at the weighted cluster points for KCSE 2014 candidates, however, it gives an idea of how the weighted cluster method affects one’s qualification for a given course.

Examples of Cut Off Points for University Admissions

To give you an idea of what to expect with this year’s cluster points, here is an example of previous points used by the University of Nairobi, JKUAT, Kenyatta University and Maseno University.
