# HOW TO CALCULATE CLUSTER POINTS FOR UNIVERSITY SELECTION

SHARE

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 subjects are calculated based on a students result slip.

Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service, popularly known as KUCCPS recently unveiled a precise formula to help students compute their score cluster points. The calculation came in response to frequent inquiries on how to calculate cluster points. Figuring weight clusters is fundamental for KUCCPS placement and admissions to Kenyan Universities.

## HOW TO FIND CLUSTER POINTS STEP BY STEP

Find the sum of points in the 4 subjects considered in whatever course you wish to take

Then use the formula below

where w = weighted cluster points (what you are looking for )

r = raw cluster points ( maximum points for four relevant subjects)

m = 48 ( constant figure)

api = total points attained

spi= 84 (constant figure )

Cluster points directly affect students eligibility for a particular course enrolled. Different tertiary institution including Dedan Kimathi University, Nairobi University, Kenyatta University, and Jomo Kenyatta University all use different cluster even for similar classes.
