KCSE Students Who Scored C+ Face Uncertainty Over University Education Funding


The Kenyan government does not have enough funds to sponsor all students who qualified for undergraduate degree programs.

This is affecting 70,088 students who scored C+ in the 2022 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams.

The University Fund CEO revealed that while everyone who scored C+ and above will get university placement through the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service, not all will receive funding as before.

The University Fund CEO, Geoffrey Monari.

Funding will now be based on the available funds and under the proposed criteria for funding, 30,088 out of 70,088 students who scored C+ will miss out on government sponsorship.

Students who do not receive funding but accept placements will have to pay for their education.

Vice Chancellors proposed several measures to help universities raise cash, including leasing out spaces, setting up businesses on idle land, and introducing short professional courses.
