KSCE 2021 exams were done and completed a couple of weeks ago. The tests were done alongside KCPE 2021, whose results have since been released to students, who will also be joining Form 1 next month.
This time around, the Education CS George Magoha will be announcing the KCSE 2021 results. This follows a yesterday postponement following the death of former President Mwai Kibaki.
The exams are also named 2021, even though they were done in 2022. The school calendar was disrupted because of the pandemic. However, before the year ends, things should be back in order.
The CS is already at the KNEC offices to release the results. More than 830K students sat for KCSE 2021 in more than 10.4K centres. This is a higher number compared to the previous year when 750K students sat for KCSE 2020.
After the announcement, qualifying students will then join universities and colleges. This should be done by September this year. To note, the students had up the start of April to revise their university and college courses.
Now, to the most important part: interested students, parents, and guardians can check their results by sending their index number to the provided number. This can be done on Safaricom, Telkom, or Airtel Kenya.
The SMS costs KES 25 each, so you should ensure that you have sufficient airtime before sending the message.
This time around too, the results are relayed almost instantly, unlike years ago when the system could get underwhelmed due to many requests.
The KNEC portal also hosts the results, but it also experiences downtimes on some occasions so you are better off using the SMS code.
The usual code is 20076, and we hope it is not changed. If it has been changed, then we will update you immediately.
Note: send the text after the CS has finished announcing the results because that is when the code becomes active.
