    That's really botched thinking. It's not the same thing as to ENROLL when certain to score a pass. Graduating with a pass especially knowing you gave it your all is way better than dropping out. Nothing is worse than quitting. Plus employers worth their salt will ask for transcripts.

    Don't worry about the pass, worry about the drop out tag.

    After reading all these comments, I've come to the sad conclusion that Kenya is a long way from developing.
    Everyone here is talking about how a pass cannot give you a job, blah blah... how you should finish that and get another degree etc.

    What's the purpose of a degree? Is it simply a paper to get a job? Where are these jobs you keep talking about?
    These people have been drilled since nursery to study hard and get a good job, and they have refused to get out of that reality. Unfortunately, most have condemned themselves to living paycheck after paycheck.

    In my view, a degree is simply meant to give you knowledge to enrich yourself, not the paper to work for others and enrich them.
    I know most of Kenya's university education is shit, but if you're serious you can finish with some skills. We're in 2017 for fs. There are many opportunities of making money with whatever skill you have, both physically and online.
    These guys advising that you need papers will forever remain poor or average, and in the process condemn Kenya to the same fate.
    Americans, Chinese, South African, Nigerians etc. have an incredible entrepreneurial spirit and often times travel many miles to come and employ Kenyans with papers.

    In your case, since you are almost done, it's only logical that you complete. But you've said you're doing well financially. Double on whatever you've been making money on. Use that money to make more money. Whether you eventually choose to return to the field you studied is up to you.

    But this attitude with the vast majority of Kenyans is tiring and will condemn the country's future. Get a degree - Get a job - Get a masters - Get a promotion.
    Guess what, I took a break on my first degree (might still return), and right now I've employed several degree holders. I get job requests from masters holders all the time.
    Someone stated something about finishing a degree giving investors confidence about your delivery. That is high nonsense. It has never turned up and I've never heard of a situation where it turned up.

    People, change your attitude. Attend university/college for the skills, not the certificate.

    Endelea na masomo mbrathe kwanza kama ni Engineering uko sawa..Some guys don't even graduate na wao hupata kazi. So you are advantaged with that PASS..plus already umetumia pesa yako mingi so far.

    PS. Wewe ni certified village troll na mpaka saa hii hujatuambia ni Engineering gani..but usijali hiyo ni wivu tu inanikula kwa ndani coz pia mimi ni a polytechnic dropout but after an idiot called Mwaniki stole my toolbox and he was a principal's buddy so case haikuenda mbali. Ikabidi tu nichomoke.

    I beat degree holders in my first job despite i just had a college certificate. Reason being the employer was looking beyond certificates and grades.
