The Board’s Executive Director, Dan Odongo, announced Wednesday that this year’s national examinations will commence on Friday, October 13, 2023, with the briefing of UCE candidates. The first paper will be Geography on October 16, 2023.

The UCE Examination will run until November 17, 2023. The second series of examinations is the PLE, which will be conducted from November 7th–9th, 2023, starting with the briefing of the candidates. The third and final set of examinations, UACE, will be conducted from November 10, 2023, to December 1, 2023.

“Heads of Centers are hereby advised to ensure that every candidate receives a copy of the timetable and that the same is also displayed on the school noticeboards. Center heads can access the timetables from their portals. Hard copies will also be provided along with the other stationery, which will be distributed on Monday, September 11, 2023.

Candidates and all those concerned must take special note of the sections on directions to candidates and caution against malpractice in or around the examination room.

These have clearly spelled out the instructions that candidates must follow and cases of examination malpractice that can lead to disqualification, cancellation of results, or the arrest of a candidate.

The candidates must further note that involvement in malpractice in one paper shall lead to the cancellation of the entire results of the examination,” Odongo said while releasing the timetable this morning at the Media Centre in Kampala.

A total of one million, two hundred twenty-four thousand, three hundred seventy-one (1,224,371) candidates have registered for all three levels of the final examinations at 20,921 centers. Of the total candidates, 51% are female, while 49% are male.

We have recorded a percentage increase of 12,690 (13.5%) at the UACE level, which is a total of 110,579 candidates this year as compared to 97,889 last year. At the UCE level, there is a percentage increase of 14,988 (4.3%) in candidature, from 349,433 to 364,421 candidates this year. There is, however, a drop of 83,438 (10%) in the number of candidates at the PLE level, from 832,809 last year to 749,371 this year. At the UCE level, there is a percentage increase of 14,988 (4.3%) in candidature, from 349,433 to 364,421 candidates this year.

There is, however, a drop of 83,438 (10%) in the number of candidates at the PLE level, from 832,809 last year to 749,371 this year. Of the entire candidate pool, 3,698 are Special Needs Education (SNE) learners, as compared to 3,400 last year. Of the SNE candidates, 2,436 are PLE candidates, 721 are UCE candidates, and 242 are UACE candidates.

In terms of funding, 645,191 (53%) of the total candidates are funded by the government, while 579,180 (47%) of the candidates are privately sponsored.

“We have just completed a countrywide pre-test of the test items and are currently analyzing the outcome.

The pretest exercise was conducted in 220 schools and involved 6,000 students. Candidates should look out for the correctness of names as well as the order of names, date of birth, gender, resolution of the candidates’ photograph, and the subjects and papers registered for in the case of UCE and UACE candidates.

After confirming registration status, candidates should sign on a parallel register to confirm the correctness of the registration data. Where anomalies in the candidate’s bio-data are found, candidates should inform the school authorities, who shall alert UNEB for correction of the variance,” Odongo said.

According to the timetable, PLE, UCE, and UACE students will start their examinations as decided by the UNEB Authorities, with the briefing of candidates across the country.
