Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) is the national body responsible for overseeing national examination in Kenya.


Some of the exams delivered by KNEC are:

  • The Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination – This is the exam which is done after one completes his primary (elementary) education. This is when one is in standard eight. After completing the exam, one can proceed to secondary school.
  • The Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education KCSE examination – This is the exam which is done after one completes four years of study in secondary (high) school. After completing the exam, one is able to go to university or college depending on the grade he/she acquired.
  • Final exams for all national polytechnics.
