How to Calculate Cluster Points KUCCPS 2019-2020 Intake
KUCCPS guidelines of the Cluster Points system 2019.
Four subjects to be considered to calculate raw cluster points.
KUCCPS has revised the weighted cluster points formula.
The board uses weighted cluster points to determine the cut off points for individual courses.
The procedure for choosing a course has been indicated clearly by all universities and the placement body KUCCPS.
For one to qualify for a certain course there are a number of points you have to achieve in the four (4) subjects that are considered the most relevant for the course.
e.g. The College of Health Sciences in JKUAT considers Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics/ Physics and English/ Kiswahili as their core cluster subjects.
Here is how to calculate the weighted cluster points to check whether you qualify for admission to take a particular course at a Kenyan University.
How the Weighted Cluster Points are arrived at:
KUCCPS provides a list of cluster subjects for each university course usually during course revision.
To get the weighted cluster points, you need to determine:
– The Raw Cluster Points
– Basic Aggregate point
The Raw Cluster Points is the maximum points for any cluster (four subjects). There are 48 points – assuming a student scored grade ‘A’ in all the four subjects (12×4).
The total points of the four cluster subjects are calculated based on a students result slip.
This total is also called the Raw Cluster Points.
Basic Aggregate Point
The Basic aggregate point is the aggregate value of the student’s grade.
For example, a student could have an A- (minus) of aggregate points between of 74 and 80 points.
This is usually indicated on the results slip.
