UNEB gives green light on Candidates’ registration, final examination

KAMPALA – National exams body, Uganda National Examinations Board UNEB has clarified that it is not planning to conduct online exams as being claimed by “unscrupulous people”.

UNEB released a statement on the weekend saying a fake social media account in its name is spreading fake information that the exams body will consider online exams if the coronavirus lockdown continues.

All schools across the country remain physically closed due to the pandemic.

In a statement, UNEB’s executive secretary Dan Odongo said: “It has come to the attention of the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) that there are some unscrupulous people operating a fake social media account in the name of UNEB, and are circulating fake information to the effect that UNEB is likely to consider conducting online Examinations if conditions persist.

“UNEB disassociates itself from such fake information and informs the public that online conduct of examinations has not been considered as an option.

“UNEB shall wait for guidance from the Ministry of Education and Sports on the re-opening of schools and subsequent conduct of examinations.”

However, Ms. Jennifer Kasule, the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) spokesperson in May this year said the Examinations board would adjust their examination timetables when schools resume to accommodate the lost time.

Ms Kalule told the media that registration of candidates, which informs their annual activities, had been badly hit.

“We need to know how many candidates there are and which subjects they are doing for us to prepare. We were supposed to have started (registration) on April 1. We had to put this on hold until schools resume,” she said.

She added: “It cannot take place when the candidates are not at school.”

“Examiners were still applying and their training had not taken place because even the selection was not done. We have to reschedule that. These are the examiners who were supposed to participate in setting the exams. The dates for the examinations will have to be adjusted depending on how much time has been lost,” she added.
