KNEC Issues Directive on 4700 KCSE and KCPE Uncollected Certificates
On the 10th of March 2023, the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) issued a directive on the 4,700 individuals who are yet to collect their certificates.
The certificates in concern are certificates dating back to 2001 belonging to individuals who sat for their Kenya Certificate for Secondary Education (KCSE) and the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE).
KNEC is urging those individuals whose names appear on the two lists to trade in their faulty certificates for new ones. The certificates are faulty due to printing errors or have since been lost.
The trading of faulty certificates will help in proving educational qualifications.
KNEC published a list containing 1,920 uncollected KCPE certificates and 2,841 uncollected KCSE certificates.
Individuals seeking to access the list of KCPE certificates must visit the link knec.ac.ke/2023/03/10kcpe-uncollected-certificates, while those who want the full KCSE list should visit the link knec.ac.ke/2023/03/10/kcse-uncollected-certificates.
For those who have lost their certificates, KNEC provides a Query Management Information System (QMIS) platform where one can submit and process queries relating to examination results online.
QMIS also handles confirmation of results, equation of foreign qualifications, biodata amendments, recoveries for KCSE/KCPE result slips, certificates and results printouts and queries on marks.
Candidates can register online on the QMIS system on the KNEC website and fill in all the required information.
The Council warned that usernames and passwords are confidential and should not be disclosed to third parties by any means.
KNEC’s mandate is outlined in Section 10 of KNEC Act No. 29 of 2012.
The functions include setting and maintaining examination standards, conducting research on educational assessments and awarding certificates or diplomas to candidates in national examinations.
