UBOS HOUSE – Education and Sports Minister Janet Museveni has Thursday afternoon released the 2018 Uganda Certificate of Examinations (UCE) results at Statistics House in Kampala.
This is the third time Ms Museveni to release UCE 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 message menu and type ‘UCE’, leave space, type correct candidate index number and then send to 6600.”
PML Daily brings you an easy and hassle-free SMS service that will make it possible for candidates to check and access their results.
This is also the official procedure announced by the Ministry of Education and Sports.
To access the service, a user should simply send an SMS from a mobile phone to code number 6600.
To construct a valid SMS, users should enter a prescribed keyword followed by their index number and send the SMS to 6600.
The user should then receive his/her examination results or registration details instantly.
Each SMS sent to 6600 is charged Shs 500 on both Airtel and MTN networks, therefore, users must ensure that they have enough credit on their phones. UNEB says the SMS service is voluntary.
The detailed instructions and examples are given in the following table.
