JAB lowers universities cut-off points.

The Joint Admissions Board- JAB, has lowered the cut off points for the 2012 KCSE students to 61 points (B grade) for male students and 59 (B- grade) points for female students. For the 2011 candidates, the cut off points were 63 and 61 points for male and female students respectively. Students who have a disability will be admitted, as long as they get a C+ grade. Equally, students from marginalized and arid areas with a C+ and above will also be admitted.

A total of about 53,000 students will find places in Kenya’s public universities, and increase of 11,000 from the previous year. The criteria for selection of courses will be weighted cluster points plus the overall
aggregate points. JAB chairperson, JKUAT vice chancellor, Prof Mabel Imbuga, made the announcement on Monday, May 13. Moi University will admit the highest number of students.

However, Private universities have opposed the decision by JAB, arguing that a new admissions body, comprising of both public and private universities, needs to streamline all admissions to public and private universities.
