Candidates to sit for final Exams in March/April 2021

KAMPALA– The education and sports Ministry of Uganda is currently looking at the possibility of considering automatic promotions for non candidates as schools reopen for candidates and finalists.

Mr. Ismail Mulindwa, the Director of Basic and Secondary Education revealed that this act as the final consideration should they fail to get a chance to return to school before the end of the academic year.

Mr. Mulindwa was on Tuesday September 22nd 2020 meeting the legislators on the Education Committee where he told them that the ministry was set to roll out the enhanced home-study programme for effective learning for other learners that can lead to promotion to the next class in case the situation does not warrant reopening for all.

On Sunday September 20th 2020 while delivering his 20th state of the Nation Address about Coronavirus, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni told Ugandans that the government had agreed to reopen schools and institutions but basically for the candidates whom they can manage and ensure that they follow the Ministry of Health Standard Operating Procedures.

According to him, this group will resume studies on October 15th 2020 and added that the other learners will be thought about by January 2021.

The President also noted that there are some reasons that hinder private schools from re-opening since some schools were doing education as a business adding that the Ministry of Education has been directed to expand the number of secondary schools.

On Tuesday 22, the ministry released a new school calendar which will roll over into next year, confirming that schools will start on October 15th for the second term and close mid-December.

The Third Term, according to the new calendar will begin mid-January and end in April.
