In this post, we quickly show you how to get your 2022 KCSE results.
How to check your KCSE 2022 Results
There are two ways to check your results. One involves sending an SMS to the provided short code, a service that attracts a pretty penny, and another one that have you get these results from the KNEC portal.
- To check a student’s KCSE results via SMS:
- Send the student’s index number followed by “KCSE” (capitalized) to 20076
- No spaces between the index number and “KCSE”
- The cost is KES 25
- To check results through the KNEC website:
- Go to the KNEC website
- Select the year the student sat for the exam (e.g. 2022)
- Enter the student’s index number
- Click Submit
- Student’s results will be displayed on the screen
- This option is free, but a reliable internet connection is necessary.
These are unprecedented times for learners in Kenya, occasioned by crash programs arising from the aftermath of the 2020 covid lockdowns. The introduction of CBC further throws more confusion in the already struggling, under-funded education system in Kenya.
Here is to hoping and praying that these learners’ resilience and fortitude are enough to see them through the 8-4-4 system.
