The Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) has reiterated that there shall be no room for late registration of candidates set to sit their national examinations for the year 2020.
The registration exercise which will last for 1 month is set to end on Monday November 30, 2020.
According to the statement released on Friday by UNEB Executive Secretary Dan Odongo, examination centres and parents should ensure that all learners in candidate classes are registered by Monday.
“The Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) would like to make a last call to Heads of Examination centres as well as parents to register all the candidates for PLE (Primary Leaving Examinations), UCE (Uganda Certificate of Education) and UACE (Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education) by Monday 30th November 2020,” said Odongo.
Out of the 13,966 PLE centres, Odongo said that over 90% have registered their candidates and over 85% of 3,640 centres for UCE have registered, while UACE, registration of candidates from 2,164 centres stands at 77%.
“We therefore urge the remaining centres to submit the registration data of their candidates within the remaining days as there will be no room for late registration,” said Odongo.
He called on Head Teachers that have registered their candidates to download the generated draft registers and photo albums and avail them to all concerned students and/ or parents to do another round of thorough checking to eliminate any errors.
Every PLE candidate is supposed to pay 34,000 shillings for registration, 164,000 for UCE and 186,000 for UACE.
In October, UNEB warned schools against inflating registration fees.
