The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) has confirmed that the challenge experienced in payments on eCitizen has finally been resolved.

The challenges were reported during applications for placement to universities and colleges but a joint technical team has addressed the issue concerning delays, according to the agency.

"As a result of the interventions put in place by the team, which comprises KUCCPS and eCitizen officers, the application success rate has increased rapidly. As a result, 22,307 students have submitted their applications successfully on the KUCCPS portal in the last 24 hours.

"This is the highest number of successful applicants in 24 hours since the process began on February 7, 2024," KUCCPS announced.

Application record

According to the agency, 144,102 (72.2%) of the 199,695 students who attained a mean grade of C+ and above in the 2023 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination applied by close of business today.

"Based on the application trends of the 2022 KCSE candidates, KUCCPS targets 173,178 (86%) of the students with C+ above to apply for placement this year. So far, 83% of the targeted students with a mean grade of C+ and above in the 2023 KCSE examination have applied.

"Following the stabilisation of the payment integration process, KUCCPS encourages all those who are yet to submit their course choices to do so before the deadline of Monday, March 4, 2024," the statement added.

KUCCPS sounded confident and said the application process would be smooth.

"We assure applicants, parents, and the public in general that the application process is smooth and all eligible persons should apply," it concluded.
