The former two options are timely compared to the latter two which will take more time.

To check the results via SMS, students and their parents are asked to send the candidate's index number followed by the initials KCPE (in capital letters) to 20076. Ensure there are no spaces between the index number and the initials KCPE.

Note that the system will be accessible on the official release date.

This service is available for all mobile networks where you will be charged Ksh25 per SMS.
 
Since over one million students will be accessing the platform, it may experience some delays.

On the other hand, through the online portal, with a few simple steps, you will have the results at your fingertips. 

First access the KNEC portal and proceed to the KNEC tab, select the year the candidate set for the national exams.  

Enter the index number then click submit and the results will appear.

Note that you need internet connectivity to access the portal. Also, with the portal, the results can be printed.
