How to get KCPE 2019 results
According to the Kenya National Examinations Council, to get the results, SMS the ‘index number’ followed by ‘KCPE’ in capital letters to 20076.
The KCPE results will be through the SMS service that will cost 20 shillings and through an online KNEC portal where one will only need to enter the student’s index number.
It is important to be aware that the system is often overwhelmed by requests which can slow it.
The government, through the Ministry of Education, has assured parents and candidates that all pupils who sat their KCPE 2019 will be accommodated in secondary schools as the government aims at achieving a 100 per cent transition.
On examination leakages, the Cabinet Secretary of Education Prof George Magoha has said that there was no examination paper leaked in the KCPE 2019.
“No examination paper leaked during the KCPE 2019 period,” Magoha has said.
The Teacher’s Service Commission (TSC) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Nancy Macharia has, however, noted that the body plans to investigate the conduct of 56 teachers who are suspected of aiding cheating of exams.
The Education Permanent Secretary has however urged parents to be keener in celebrating their children’s achievement.
