Education CS George Magoha has announced that he will release the 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education results on Monday, March 28.

Before releasing the KCPE results, CS Magoha has to brief President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House before making the official announcement at the Kenya National Examination Council headquarters in Nairobi.

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.

This year, around 1.2 million applicants students took the 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education examinations.

The council recorded 1,225,507 candidates in 28,316 KCPE test centres this year, compared to 1,191,752 candidates in 28,467 centres in 2020.

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 KCPE 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 KCPE (in capital letters).

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

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. ​
