The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service has announced that the online application system will open for the Second Revision of degree, diploma and certificate choices from Thursday, April 2, 2020.

The deadline for second revision will be on Wednesday, April 15, 2020.

According to the placement body, the Second Revision will be open for all the applicants who, on competitive selection after the First Revision of Choices, have not secured any of their choices for placement to universities and colleges.

The KCSE index numbers of these applicants are listed HERE. We urge principals of the secondary schools whose former students’ index numbers are listed on the website to inform the affected applicants to revise their choices.

Students who did not apply through their schools and missed the First Revision of Choices may use this opportunity to submit their applications.

The applicants will be required to select new choices from the degree, diploma and craft/artisan certificate courses with unfilled capacities, which are also listed on the website, and submit afresh.

Applicants whose index numbers are not in the list on the website have already provisionally secured one of their choices, hence are not required to reapply. The outcome of their applications will be given after the conclusion of the placement processing.
