This is a chance given to those students who meet the minimum cut off points for university admission to APPLY for university admission, OR to revise the degree choices they made while still in school.
This exercise will be for those who attained a mean grade of B (63 points for boys and 61 points for girls) in KCSE 2011.
This exercise will be conducted Online meaning candidates will need a access to a computer or a phone with internet access.
Candidates will need to have:
1. KCSE Index No
2. KCPE Index No
3. Birth Certificate Number
4. A valid email account, if you do not have an email address, you can create one with Google Mail (GMail) by clicking here
5. Ksh.500( if you had applied for university admission earlier while in school) or Ksh. 800 (for those applying for University admission for the first time)
We now have the procedure for the on line revision process as follows:
PROCEDURE FOR THE REVISION PROCESS:
STEP 1: Check the status of your application (the one you did while still in school) from JABs website. Click here to see status. ***the JAB website might be down from time to time due to heavy traffic, however, please keep trying.
STEP 2: Search and identify the degree you wish to apply for and its corresponding weighted cut off points from the list available on JAB website here (if this link does not work, please get a copy of the same document on The Timpata’s storage here). Please note that the same course could be offered by different Universities, and each university has its own cut off points. To make your search easier, the same information provided in the document above, is re-arranged such that related courses are put together regardless of the University. To get this information in this format, please click here.
STEP 3: Check what are the 4 clusters subjects required for your degree choice in step 2 above by clicking here.
STEP 4: Calculate your Weighted cluster point. You can read on how to calculate the cluster points in The Timpata by clicking here.
STEP 5: See if your weighted cluster point (in step 4) is above the weighted cut off point for your degree choice as you identified in step 2 above. If it is above, then you qualify for admission to that course. If it is below, then you do not qualify for that course, and you might want to select another degree choice by starting again from step 2.
Repeat Step 2 to Step 5 until you have a set of enough degree choices (enough means as many as the system allows you to choose). Remember to note the corresponding degree codes for each e.g 11101 for Bachelor of Arts in University of Nairobi) that you qualify for admission. These degree choices can be from different Universities.
STEP 6: With your degree choices ready i.e the name and the code of each of the degree choices, Log on to the JAB’s revision system here: http://jabonline.uonbi.ac.ke from a computer. If you are using your mobile phone, you can go to: http://jabmobile.uonbi.ac.ke
STEP 7: If it is your first time to use the system, you will need to ‘REGISTER’ to get a user name and password which you shall use to log in. PLEASE REMEMBER YOUR PASSWORD. It might be very difficult for you to complete the process if you forget or lose your password. Write it down if need be (note whether the password has capital letters since a difference in capital and small letters matters for a password).
STEP 8: Once you are logged in, confirm your contact details and make any changes if need be. (This is the address you are likely to receive your admission lettes on. Please enter carefully)
STEP 9: You are now ready to access the Degree Application Form. However you need to make a payment first. The system should show you how much you are expected to pay. Usually, if you had applied for university admission while still in school, you shall be required to pay Ksh. 500 to revise your application. If you had not applied while in school and you are applying for University admission for the first time now, you shall be required to pay Ksh. 800.
