The Ministry of Education cabinet secretary, Amina Mohamed said this during a press conference where she launched Kenya Universities and College Central Placement Service for the candidates.

“Based on the 2018 KCSE results, 651,189 candidates qualified for placement to tertiary institutions at various levels under Government sponsorship. Of these, 90,744 attained a mean grade of C+ and above, meaning that they all qualified to join local universities. I wish to announce that all the candidates who scored C+ and above in the 2018 KCSE examination will be selected for admission to degree courses in both public and private universities,” she said

A total 121,288 candidates who scored C plain and C minus will be selected to join different institutions for diploma under government sponsor ship.

Candidates with D plus will be selected to do craft courses while their colleagues with D minus and E will be doing artisan courses at Technical Vocational Education Training (TVET).

“I therefore invite all the KCSE examination candidates who wish to revise their choices for Degree, Diploma and Certificate courses for Government sponsorship to proceed with the exercise as soon as the portal is open. The aim is to ensure they realign their selection with their performance in the KCSE examination and take care of any change in their new career interests,” she added
