KAMPALA – Education and Sports minister Janet Museveni has Thursday, February 27 released the 2019 Uganda Advanced Certificate of Examinations (UACE) results at President’s Office in Kampala.
At the same event, Uganda National Examinations Board UNEB has announced that candidates who will not be able to go to schools and pick results will access them by SMS on their phones.
“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.”
How do I check results on Phone?

For example, to check the results of the candidate with index number U1016/501, in your message box, type UACE U1016/501 AND SEND TO 6600.
The user should then receive his/her examination results or registration details instantly. You will receive an SMS at a cost of UGX 500 per candidate
This is the official procedure announced by the authorities.
How to type the message
- Go to messages
- Type UACE

How to check results through the internet?
Go to your web browser, Type ereg.uneb.ac.ug/results.
In the form, enter the candidate’s Index Number and click SEARCH.
A page with the Candidate’s results will load.
However, last month, UNEB blocked the online option of checking Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE) 2019 results after pressure from telecom companies MTN Uganda 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.
