One must understand how to replace the missing KCSE and KCPE certificates because of their importance.

Your certificate serves as a stepping stone for higher education and career. It is also a crucial requirement for enrollment in a college or university.

Many employers request the KCSE and KCPE certificates during job interviews.

You might wish to replace your certificate right now because of uncertainties in the future. Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has allowed the replacement of lost or damaged certificates.

The KNEC bank slips are available at either of the previous banks. Make sure you attach a bank receipt when submitting your forms.
