KUCCPS: Teaching Courses See Increased Demand as English, Math No Longer Mandatory

In a notable change, KUCCPS has adjusted its placement criteria for the Bachelor of Education program by removing Mathematics and English as mandatory requirements.

This adjustment led to a surge in the number of students opting for this course.

Dr. Wahome explained that the TSC requires just a C+ and two teaching subjects for the Bachelor of Education Arts, and the removal of Maths and English requirements resulted in over 30,000 students applying for education.

TSC requires that you just have a C+ and two teaching subjects, and we had added math and English in Bachelor of Education Arts, and when we removed this, we saw a lot of students apply. We have over 30,000 students who have gone to pursue education,” said Wahome.

The Bachelor of Education programme attracted the highest number of applicants. KUCCPS noted that 85 percent of 2023 KCSE candidates with C+ and above made applications for courses.
