KAMPALA – The Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) Executive Secretary Dan Odongo has revealed that there was a 3.8% increase of students who registered for the final Examinations.
According to a statement dated December 8, a total of 1,181,666 candidates registered for all the three levels compared to 1,138,000 who registered last year.
” Registration of candidates started on October 22,2020 a week after the opening of schools. The process went on until November 30,2020. We however gave a grace period of one week that ended on Monday, December 7. This was to enable the new centers to effectively finalize the process and give an opportunity to those who may have not registered within the set period. Registration has ended now,” he said.
Odongo further urged headteachers to display the draft registers and albums to enable candidates verify their registration data.
“This will go on until the end of the term. In case of any errors, amendments can be effected at UNEB. They should specifically look out for spellings, names of candidates, order of names, photographs of candidates to ensure they are not mismatched, gender, date of birth, subjects and papers offered, institutional choices and finding code,” reads an excerpt.
Odongo added that for PLE candidates, an amendment form can be downloaded from the portal while for UCE and UACE candidates, an amendment request should be made to UNEB on the school letter, head and the required documents.
