Assertions that the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) had increased university entry points for the 2022 KCSE exam have been refuted.
The warning was sent by the placement agency following reports on social media that KUCCPS had modified the university entry criterion from C+ to B plain and that only male students with 62 points and above and female students with 61 points would be admitted to institutions.
On their official Twitter account, KUCCPS refuted the allegations and cautioned the public about the spread of false information online.
The organization declared that only its official website, social media pages, and official Twitter account will be used to convey information about student placement.
KUCCPS tweeted. “Beware of false information circulating in online forums. Information on student placement will be communicated officially through this page, the KUCCPS website and official social media pages.”
False information about requirements for entering universities has previously appeared on social media. Similar allegations have surfaced recently and have been refuted by KUCCPS.
The group has asked people to use official sources for reliable information and to double-check material before posting it on social media.
