**Calculating the Weighted Cluster Point**

The following formula is used to calculate the weighted cluster point:

Where:

*w = **Weighted Cluster Point
c = Raw Cluster Point
a = Aggregate Cluster Point*

Here is a sample of a table with precalculated Weighted Cluster Points based on the fomula above.

With this table, simply match your * Basic Aggregate* points on the Verticle Axis and your

*points for a given course on the Horizontal Axis and read the*

**Raw Cluster***at their intersection.*

**Weighted Cluster Point**Please note that this **might** not be the same formula applied to arrive at the weighted cluster points for KCSE 2014 candidates, however , it gives an idea of how the weighted cluster method affects ones qualification for a given course.

### Examples of Cut Off Points for University Admissions

To give you an idea of what to expect with this year’s cluster points, here is an example of previous points used by the University of Nairobi, JKUAT, Kenyatta University and Maseno University.

The last figure at the end of each Degree course is the Previous KCSE Cut Off Points for admission to that particular course. In other words, that figure represents the * Weighted Cluster Points* as discussed above.
