A fine of Sh500 per candidate will be charged if the scores are not captured online, as stipulated.

KNEC says that the subject teachers are expected to upload candidates’ scores and pictorial evidence (portfolio) on the project portal; at the end of each milestone. This is a deviation from the past where subject teachers uploaded collated students’ scores at the end of the practical/ project period; mostly in September/ October.

According to KNEC instructions, the Pictorial evidence should be photographs of the candidates with their work, in either Graphics Interface Format (.gif) or JPEG (.jpg) format (These two are photograph formats obtained by using a digital Camera). Each candidate’s pictorial evidence should show the candidate’s name and KCSE examination index number.

The registration exercise for KCSE 2020 candidates is underway and it will be concluded on 15th February, 2020.
