The Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) has revealed that the number of candidates registered to sit for final exams for the school year 2020 has increased by 3.8%.
In a press statement issued by Dan N Odong, the UNEB Executive Secretary, a total of 1,181,666 candidates have registered for all the three levels compared to the 1,138,000 who registered last year.
“This represents a percentage increase of 3.8% in total candidature,” he said.
Meanwhile, Odong called on school management teams to display the draft registers and albums to enable candidates verify their registration data and correct any errors that might have been made during registration.
“This will go on until the end of the term. In case of any errors, amendments can be affected at UNEB. They should specifically look out for errors in respect to names of candidates, spellings and order of names, photographs of candidates to ensure that they are not mismatched, gender, dates and year of birth, subjects, papers offered by the candidate, institutional choices and funding code,” he said.
He noted that for the case of PLE students, 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 required documents attached.
The statement also indicated that parents and any interested persons who wish to confirm the registration of any candidates can do so by sending an SMS to 6600, using any telephone network by typing Reg. (space) Full index number then sending to 6600.
Candidates will sit their exams starting with UCE between March 1 to April 6, 2021, PLE from March 30 to 31, 2021 and UACE from April 12 to May 3, 2021.
