The Ministry of Education has said learners in candidate classes will report back for the 3rd team on January 18, 2021.
Initially, the revised school calendar indicated that the third term was to start on January 11, 2021.
However, the Permanent Secretary at the Education ministry, Mr Alex Kakooza, says this has been adjusted by a week to allow the completion of the voting exercise, which takes place on January 14.
He insisted that the change will neither affect the designated duration of the third term nor Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) and other national examinations.
According to the UNEB timetable, examinations are scheduled to begin on February 26, 2021, with the briefing of senior four candidates, and after that Uganda Certificate of Education-UCE examinations will commence the following week on March 1 running up to April 6, 2021. Other candidates at primary and A’level will start their examinations with a briefing on March 26 and April 9 respectively.
