KCPE 2020 Candidates can now check their registration status through an SMS code that has been provided by Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC).
Through its twitter handle, the council has outlined a procedure involving an SMS system parents or candidates can use to check their registration details.
“Candidates or parents can send the index No. and exam to 20076. Eg 107108940kcpe”, read the tweet.

For example if the index number for the KCPE candidate is 01234569, then the message to be sent to 20076 is, 0123456789kcpe.
Once the message has been sent, you will receive a notification from KNEC indicating the index number, name of candidate, year of birth and all registered subjects(MAT, ENG, KIS, SCI, SST CRE). This means the student is registered.
The cost of this service is sh 25.
The move will seek to do away with ugly scenarios where previously schools have failed to register candidates for national examination.
Registration of both KCPE and KCSE 2020 candidates was conducted between 2nd January and 15th February, 2020.
Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams are expected to run from 27th October 2020 to 29th October 2020. Rehearsals will be on 26th October 2020.
