The Ministry of Education has issued a circular regarding the contact information of Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education Candidates (KCSE).
The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) is intending to create a database with contact information details of all candidates to ‘facilitate communication’ to the candidates and their parent/guardians regarding school/centre application, revision and any other relevant information.

RE: 2022 KCSE CANDIDATES CONTACT INFORMATION
The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) is a State Corporation established under Section 55 of the Universities Act No. 42 of 2012. It is mandated to coordinate placement of Government sponsored students to universities and colleges, among other functions.
In furtherance of this mandate, and to expand placement opportunities to all the candidates under the Government policy on transition from basic to higher education, KUCCPS normally requests schools to submit the candidates’ applications for placement to colleges and universities before they sit for their KCSE examinations.
To this end, KUCCPS intends to develop a database with contact information details of all the candidates. This will facilitate communication to the candidates and their parent/guardians, regarding school/centre application, revision and any other relevant information, regarding government sponsorship. KUCCPS will engage schools on the aforementioned.
This is to request you to accord KUCCPS the necessary support.
