KUCCPS courses and cluster points

The KUCCPS, in 2017had to undertake placement of large number of students who performed exceptionally well in the KCSE. About 140 students were granted for admission to the Nairobi University to study medicine; all of them secured ‘A’ grade. Apart from it, 88,626 students got admission into public and private universities, with the number of women exceeding that of men.
