KNEC Provides SMS Number to Confirm KCSE, KCPE and KPSEA Registration
The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has provided a Short Message Service (SMS) number which will help parents when confirming the registration of their children for the upcoming 2022 national examinations for both secondary and primary schools.
The Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) will be done by class eight (8) learners while the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) will be done by learners in Grade 6 learners.
In Secondary Schools, Form 4 learners will sit for their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE).
Many learners have paid for registration and waited to sit for their National Examinations after years of preparing for those examinations but have been disappointed when they find out that their school’s administration failed them in registration.
To avoid this embarrassment of registration, the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has now provided an SMS number to be used to confirm learners’ registration. The number provided is 20076.
To confirm the registration of your learner, you are required to send an SMS containing the learner’s index starting with the word KCPE or KPSEA or KCSE. For instance, if your child is index number 123456012, and she is set to sit for her KCPE, you will send KCPE123456012 to 20076.
You will then receive a reply to confirm the registration details of your child.
For Grade Six learners, assessment numbers will be provided in the school where they are registered.
According to KNEC timetables, Grade 6 candidates will sit for their KPSEA examinations starting between the 28th and the 30th of November 2022. The rehearsal day will be on the 25th of November 2022. On the other hand, KCPE candidates will sit for their examinations on the same day as the Grade 6 candidates with rehearsal day also on the 25 of May 2022.
For Form 4 candidates, they shall sit for their KCSE examinations from the 21st of November 2022 till the 23rd of December 2022 when they shall sit for their last paper.
Rehearsal for the KCSE will be on the 18th of November 2022.
It should be noted that the KCSE examinations started in April and shall go on till October 2022.
