Education and Sports Ministry revises 2020 candidates’ syllabus

KAMPALA- The Ministry of Education and Sports has revised the syllabus for candidate classes in Primary Seven, Senior Four and Six.

Under the revised syllabus, the ministry has summarized content to be taught this year, attributing the change to the coronavirus pandemic, which led to the closure of schools for close to seven months.

According to the final Home-Study Learning Framework, the National Curriculum Development Centre (NCDC) has redesigned the syllabus focusing on key concepts per subject.

In Primary Seven English, topics such as school holidays and letter writing have been omitted.

NCDC is mandated by law to design, develop educational curricula for primary, secondary and some tertiary institutions in Uganda.

Sources have revealed that the selected concepts will be the main focus for setting national examinations by the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB).

The reduced content in the syllabus will affect all subjects, including sciences from primary, secondary and other tertiary institutions.
