UNEB to start hearing cases of withheld exam cases on Monday

KAMPALA – The Uganda National Examinations Board UNEB will on Monday 2nd March 2020 start hearing cases against schools whose Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) results were withheld.

The examination body while releasing the 2019 UCE results last months withheld examination results of 1,262 candidates over 40 UNEB centers country wide on suspicion of engagement in examination malpractices.

Dan Odongo, the UNEB executive secretary disclosed this on Thursday during the releasing of UACE results.

“All schools whose UCE exam results were withheld, the board has now summoned their school heads and learners to defend themselves on the allegations before further action is taken on their fate”. Odongo said.

Handing over results to Education and Sports minister Janet Museveni in January, Prof Mary Akwakol, the UNEB Chairperson said that there were reduced malpractice cases from 1,825 in 2018.

Prof. Okwakol noted that these cases resulted from teachers providing assistance to the students during practical exams and students copying from one another particularly in the science subjects.

Overall performance in the UCE 2019 examinations was better than that of the previous year. It improved from 87.2 percent in 2018 to 92.2 percent.
