UNEB secretary Mathew Bukenya handed over the exam results to Education Minister Jessica Alupo in Kampala.

Boys outsmarted girls in all subjects except English and Literature in English.

Education Ministry Permanent Secretary Francis-Xavier Lubanga said government had already picked 600 schools countrywide where free A’ level education will be rolled out to accommodate 63,575 students.

Other 5,665 students will be admitted at government technical and vocational schools to meet the demand for practical skills.

The better part of candidates flatly failed science subjects Chemistry and Biology.

Alupo said there was considerable improvement in pass levels in English, Literature in English, Christian Religious Education, History, Agriculture, Physics and Commerce while a slight performance decline was registered in Geography and Mathematics.

She attributed the decline to inadequate teachers and laboratory apparatus in private schools.


Alupo further announced the withholding of results belonging to 1,631 candidates suspected to have been involved in malpractices.

The confiscated results will be released after investigations are complete.
