  1. I had already applied for university through Kuccps and placed in University of Eldoret but my passion is nursing in kmtc unlike my previous education course. Though I’ve already applied for HELB loan, i need a help process towards my kmtc application and HELB diversion. I scored B in my KCSE last year with above C+ in all subject. Advice please.
