KAMPALA – Education and Sports minister Janet Museveni has on Thursday morning released the 2019 Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) results at President’s Office in Kampala.
This is the fourth time Mrs. Museveni to release UACE results ever since she was appointed the political head of the ministry in 2016.
UNEB executive secretary Dan Odongo says that those who will not be able to go to schools and pick results will access the results by SMS or via the internet.
“Any person wishing to access results can do so through their mobile phones. Go to the message menu and type ‘UACE’, leave space, type correct candidate index number and then send it to 6600.”
www.theinformerug.com brings you an easy SMS service that will make it quick and possible for candidates to access their results.
This is also the official procedure announced by the Ministry of Education and Sports.
How to check results on Phone?
You can get the 2019 UACE Results for any candidate in a few simple steps.

The user will then receive his/her examination results or registration details instantly. Each SMS costs UGX 500.

However, UNEB recently blocked the online option of checking Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE) 2019 results after pressure from telecom companies MTN and Airtel Uganda who were contracted to post results to students via Mobile SMS.
To this effect, the portal remained unavailable and Mr. Odongo advised parents and their pupils to utilize SMS services on mobile networks which will post results of candidates on their mobile sets instantly.
He said results will also be uploaded on the Schools Portals.
