previous KCPE examination details for their results to be released.

Such candidates must submit the documents through their respective schools and NOT directly to the Council, by 31st March 2012 failure to which it will be deemed that the candidates do not have the required document(s) and their results will subsequently be cancelled.

cancelled and they have been advised so in writing through their respective school principals
before release of the results.

Please note that the Council will post all cases of cancelled results on the KNEC website upon release of the results and the affected candidates are advised to check.
