How to use the KNEC SMS Code 20076 to confirm registration status for KCSE, KCPE exams. Candidates take note.

The Kenya National Examinations Council, Knec, has completed the process of capturing details of candidates for the 2020 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE). Candidates and/ or schools can now be able to check the details of the registered candidates so as to ensure they are correct. This would also present parents/ guardians with a chance to ensure that their kids have been enlisted for this year’s national examinations. Cases of learners being turned away in the last minute for failing to be registered for the exams have been reported in the past.

Confirming registration details is also key as it provides candidates with an opportunity to ensure their names, gender and subjects are accurate. In the past, candidates have been forced to sit for subjects they did not wish to undertake.
