The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has announced that the 2023 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) results can now be accessed through an online portal. This decision was revealed today Monday January 8, 2024 during the official release of the 2023 KCSE results in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County.

According to a statement from KNEC, “Individual 2023 KCSE candidates’ examination results will be accessed online through a link on the KNEC website or directly through the URL:” The statement also emphasized that candidates will be required to enter their index number and name(s) as per the registration data for the 2023 KCSE examination.

After entering the required details, candidates will be prompted to submit the information, and if accurate, the 2023 KCSE results will be displayed on the screen.

Additionally, official result slips will be available through examination centers where the candidates sat for their exams, providing a traditional means for students to obtain their results.

In a significant shift from previous years, the Ministry of Education has discontinued the use of SMS codes for accessing the 2023 KCSE results. This decision was announced by CS Machogu, who explained, “We have engaged engineers to make sure the system works perfectly unlike the other time we witnessed issues with the SMS code.”

This change comes as a response to the Ministry’s commitment to improving the reliability and accuracy of result dissemination. The move is part of a broader effort to modernize and streamline the process of accessing national examination results.

With a total of 903,260 candidates sitting for the 2023 KCSE exams, this new online access represents a significant step forward in providing a more efficient and reliable means for students and parents to check individual examination results.

Candidates will now be able to access their results with greater ease and speed, marking a new era in result accessibility for the KCSE exams.
