Authorities at St. Paul’s Secondary School Bukinda in Kabale district have described as “unfair” the decision by the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) to withhold the school’s Uganda Certificate of Examinations (UCE) results.
The school was among the exam centres whose results were withheld over malpractice. UNEB withheld results of 4,525 candidates from 112 centres across the country.
However, Agnes Atuhaire, the school’s deputy Head teacher in Charge of discipline accuses UNEB of withholding their results before summoning the school for a hearing.
She denied allegations of examination malpractice by their school, saying that the Examinations body failed to control the circulation of examinations which led to their leakage.
“UCE papers were all over social media and we never accessed the examination rooms to aid our learners during the exams. It beats our understanding when UNEB fails to release our results,” she said.
Atuhaire said they will pursue the matter until justice is realised.
“We wish to console our candidates and parents and tell them that we are following up this issue but in case nothing positive comes up, we beg that they will accept our suggestions,” added Atuhaire.
The school had 121 candidates and only results of one candidate were released.
