For the SMS option, the candidates should send their index number, followed by the initials KCPE (in capital letters) to 20076 in order to access the results. The SMS platform is available for all mobile networks and will be charged Ksh25 each.

Students are also advised not to have spacing between the index number and the initials KCPE.

Due to the urgency and high demand for the results, the Ministry of Education advises that the platform may experience delays and asked the students to be patient.

In the online platform, the candidates can access the results via the Kenya National Examinations Council portal, click on the KCPE tab then select the year they sat the national exams followed by their index number as prompted by the system.

The results should show on the resultant screen after you click submit.

According to data from the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC), 1,225,507 candidates enrolled for the 2021 KCPE exam as compared to 1,191,752 candidates in 2020. 

The 2021 KCPE was administered between March 7 and March 9, 2022, and saw 1.2 million candidates take the national exams in 28,248 exam centers across the country. The 2021 class is expected to join Form One in May 2022.

The 2021 KCPE exams were delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Once the KCPE 2021 results are out, the candidates’ next headache will be on which secondary schools they will be called to. Parents also need to start planning for their children who are expected to join form in May 2022.
