Welcome back, we will now embark on filling the kuccps excel application template/form. The 2017/2018 form is a bit different from 2016/2017, it seems some changes were done and more columns were added.
We will be tempted to follow some of the 2016/2017 rules of filling the form because new guidelines for 2017/2018 are yet to be published however once they are out in our custody we will revisit this page to make necessary changes as a way of resisting assumptions.
The edited parts of this excel format form has categories, we are going to work from one category to another.
1st category: Degree program applied for;
Note the following regulations: (2016/2017)
Suppose Tom of index 11212100001 wants to pursue mechanical engineering at Jomo Kenyatta university, but due to the demand of the the programmes at JKUAT, clusters points may shoot up, that means, if Tom's cluster subjects couldn't make anything above 42.6000, he may not get a vacancy in the university, this now calls for alternative universities.
If Tom's cluster subjects are for example 40.345, he may apply for the same programme at Machakos University (37.087) and Technical University of Mombasa (39.662) in this case, he may have a chance to get selected to pursue his dream career.
What then will his career guider fill in the 'degree programmes applied for' category?
Note the following:
What do you fill in the category 'degree programmes applied for' in column 2, 3 and 4?
If Tom's quest for Mechanical Engineering fails, he may opt to for plan B, C and D. This means, he is allowed to apply other courses of his choice from the same university or different universities. Let's have an assumption for Tom's plans
