KAMPALA – The Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) has told school owners and head teachers that they will not allow extension of the registration for all candidates.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, 11 November 2020, UNEB executive secretary Dan Odongo also appealed to schools to allow pregnant candidates register for the examinations.
“The Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) informs head teachers of schools that the registration of candidates will end on November 30, 2020,” Odongo said.
“The centres are further informed that the portals are open and UNEB has given out the required software for the registration process,” he stated.
UNEB also urged schools to keep uploading the bio-data of the registered candidates as they get it and not to wait for last minute submissions.
He further stated that the registration fees for the other candidates have not changed adding that any additional fees levied should clearly be explained to the parents, and not referred to as UNEB/registration fees.
“We appeal to managers of examination centres to be mindful of the fact that the Covid-19 pandemic has adversely affected parents financially, and as such, they must not be subjected to unfair charges,” he said.
