The CS for education, Ezekiel Machogu, recently released the 2022 KCSE results, prompting form four leavers to start strategizing on their tertiary education.
Those who attained C+ and above will join various public and government-sponsored private universities to study different courses.
Others who attained C plain and below will have to choose from a variety of self-sponsored courses in private universities and technical institutes.
Even students who scored a D Plain can join a college such as Zetech College.
Why Pursue Zetech D Plain Courses?
Zetech is one of the fastest-rising private universities in Kenya, offering various credible courses.
It is a technology-driven campus that has invested in modern learning infrastructure to empower and give its students a competitive edge in the job market.
They have programs for all calibres of students, even for students with D plain and D- mean grades.
However, the students have to start at the certificate level to qualify for diploma and undergraduate degree courses.
Students can choose between studying on the main campus at Thika Road, or the town centre and Mangu campuses.
More importantly, Zetech students can choose the school’s Open Distance E-learning, a flexible studying approach that applicants with other engagements such as work can take.
List of D Plain Courses at Zetech University
Things have transformed for the better in the current education system because D Plain holders can forgo joining TVETs and enroll in a university instead.
Below is a list of D Plain courses at Zetech:
- Certificate in Business Management (KNEC)
- Certificate in Food Production and Service (KNEC)
- Certificate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (power) (KNEC)
- Certificate in Journalism (Part 1) (ICM)
- Artisan in Salesmanship (KNEC)
All the above courses are accredited, marketable, and have affordable flexible fee payment plans.
The courses are also easy to understand and take a short period to complete.
On affordability, students with limited financial means can apply for Helb Loans Board and constituency or ward-based bursaries.
It is critical to understand that students can pursue higher levels of these courses upon completing the certificate option at the same university.
Doing so increases the chances of getting better-paying jobs in the market.
How to Join Zetech with a D plain
Students aspiring to join Zetech University must have completed form four from a recognized secondary school.
The school has three intakes per year; January, May, and September.
Below are steps to follow when applying for Zetech’s courses:
- To apply, visit any of Zetech’s campuses or through their official website
- Pay the non-refundable application fee through M-Pesa
- An admission letter is sent to the applicant’s email upon a successful application
Failure to produce relevant documents or submit all required information may disqualify applicants from getting an admission letter.
Zetech has risen through the ranks from being an ICT training centre to a college, and now a fully chartered university.
It also joins other private universities qualified to admit government-sponsored students.
All these qualifications prove that D Plain students can entrust the institution’s courses, and its ability to equip them with modern knowledge.
There is more information regarding the institute that you can find on its website, or by visiting its campus for first-hand information.
