KNEC Portal Login And Services (Everything Explained!)

The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has made it easy for KCPE and KCSE candidates to view their national exam results online through the KNEC portal. School heads even can download result slips for the entire school on the portal.

On the other hand, contracted professionals such as invigilators, exam supervisors, center heads, and even security officers can also use the portal to view and download their deployment letters.

Moreover, school heads can access relevant material relating to Competence-Based Assessment (CBA) right on the portal. So, everyone who goes to KNEC for assistance doesn’t have to do it in person as they can do everything from the comfort of their homes.

This guide will shed light on the various processes of accessing KNEC services through the portal. I’ll also highlight the services you can access through the portal and how to go about it.

Here we go!

KNEC CP2 Portal

The Kenya National Examination Council allows KNEC contracted professionals like invigilators, exam center heads, supervisors, and security personnel to access various KNEC services online through the Contracted Professionals System (CP2) portal.

Such services include:

How to Access the CP2 KNEC Portal

As a First-Timer

First-time users can access the CP2 portal by visiting cp2.knec.ac.ke and following the signup steps. Ordinarily, clicking the link leads you to a login page.

Since you are a new user, you cannot log into the portal without a username and password. That means you must first sign up to obtain the login details. So, scroll down to identify the ‘create account’ tab and click on it.

You’ll need to use your phone number as the user name and wait to receive the password via SMS.

As an Existing CP2 Member

You don’t need to sign up if you are already an existing CP2 member. Thus, you should go straight to cp2.knec.ac.ke and log into your CP2 account.

You’ll access a dashboard that allows you access to all CP2 services.

Note that you can recover the password to your CP2 account if you cannot remember it once you click on forgotten password and follow the steps. Alternatively, you can text ‘password’ and forward the SMS to 22262.

KNEC also allows institutions to access CBA (Competence-Based Assessment)-related services through the online portal. That includes services like learner’s registration, CBA reports, CBA assessment scores, learner’s transfers, nominal roll download, headteacher questionnaire, and marks entering.
