The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has officially set up an SMS platform that teachers, parents and candidates can use to confirm registration details for the 2022 Grade 6, Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE), and the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCSE).
Through a notice dated Saturday, May 28, 2022, the council instructed parents and school administrators to check and confirm that the registration details are accurate.
The exercise is expected to verify all students supposed to sit the national exams scheduled for November and December 2022.
Following the announcement, this will be the first time Grade Six students are assessed under the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) before joining junior secondary school.
How to confirm you registered for KCSE
To verify, parents and school adminstrators are required to send an SMS to 20076 with the candidate’s index number.
“Headteachers, parents, and candidates can now confirm the registration details for 2022 KPSEA, KCPE and KCSE examinations by sending an SMS to 20076. Use this format; (Exam)(Index Number), for example; KCPE36611030002, and send to 20076. You will receive a confirmation message,” the examination body wrote.
Confirmation of registration details is a vital process as it enables candidates to ensure that the details given are accurate to mitigate problems such as sitting for subjects one did not wish to undertake among others.
