It is only students applying “For Evening, Afternoon, and External programmes that are not restricted on the year of sitting “A” Level.”
For mature entrants, a candidate is required to “Hold at least a Second Class Diploma from a recognised institution, relevant to the programmes applied for.”

Masikye warned students against forgery, saying it can lead to grave repercussions if the culprit is discovered.
“Applicants are strongly warned against presenting forged or other people’s academic documents to support their applications for admission. The consequences, if discovered, are very grave indeed,” he warned.
