2017 Candidates to receive their Certificates from next week

More than 1.6 million candidates who sat the national examinations last year will receive their certificates from next week.

Candidates will be given 60 days to verify details printed on their certificates and report cases to Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) for correction

Students who will fail to verify their details within the set period will be slapped with a penalty of up to Sh5,000.

The two-month window to candidates to verify their details is part of efforts to ensure academic papers are genuine and contain true details of Knec certificate holders.

Students have been asked to take advantage of the two-month window to check spellings of their names and if the photographs printed on their certificates match their faces. KNEC Chief Executive Officer Ms Karogo told Saturday Standard that during registration of candidates, mistakes may have occurred, occasioning mismatch of photographs and spellings of names of some candidates.

“We have had cases of various mistakes made during uploading of the students details, most of which are done in cyber cafes. We want to allocate sufficient time for candidates, teachers and even parents to look at the certificates and within the time allocated,” Ms Karogo said.

Documents from Knec reveals that KCPE candidates who fail to verify their details and lodge complain after the deadlines will be charged Sh3,000. And KCSE candidates will be charged Sh5,000 to make corrections after lapse of the verification deadline.
