According to the requirements from the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS), a candidate must have to score at-least a C (plain) in English to undertake any teaching degree programme. This is in addition to the minimum cluster points set by respective universities.

A student will also have to score a minimum of a D+ (plus) in Mathematics so as to be admitted to a Bachelor of Education (Arts) course. Those seeking to be science teachers must score a minimum of a C (plain) in Mathematics and a C+ (plus) in any of the Sciences offered at high school.
