The 2020 KCSE Results are scheduled to be released on Monday, May 10, 2021, by Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha.

A total of 751,150 candidates registered to do the exam in the Covid-plagued year 2020, an increase from 699,745 during the previous year.

Prof. Magoha said that the results would be accessible on the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) website, SMS platforms, county education offices, and the respective schools.

To check the results via SMS, parents, students, or other interested individuals are required to send the candidate’s index number followed by the initials KSCE to 20076.

To access their results, candidates will be required to send an SMS message to 20076 with the candidate's index number followed by KCSE (In capital letters).

Also, there should be no spacing after the index number's last number and the initials KCSE.

The SMS platform is available for all mobile networks and will be charged at Sh25 per request for results.

Due to the urgency and high demand for the results, sometimes the platform has delays and patience is required.

The advantage of getting the results through the KNEC portal is that one is able to print the online results.

However, the results are only provisional because the Ministry of Education requires candidates to pick the results from their respective examination centres.

Candidates have been waiting for the results with bated breath and anxiety following the circumstances the tests were administered. ​
