The Uganda Business and Technical Examination Board (UBTEB) has announced that it will release the results for the April—May 2023 examinations tomorrow.
This declaration was made by the UBTEB Executive Secretary, Mr. Onesmas Oyesigye, through a statement delivered on Wednesday. The unveiling ceremony of these results will take place at the Office of the President in Kampala and will be officiated by the Minister of Education and Sports, Ms. Janet Museveni.
The results cover a broad spectrum of courses and programmes. Mr. Oyesigye mentioned that they pertain to students who undertook their final assessments in a variety of courses, including Technical diploma, Technical higher diploma, Business diploma, Business certificate, and Physical and Biological diploma and certificate programmes.
Elaborating on the scale and demographics of the examinations, the statement divulged, “A total of 13,768 candidates appeared for these end of programme assessment exams. Out of this cohort, 8,002 were female and 5,766 were male. The examinations were systematically organized and executed across 262 dedicated examination centers throughout the nation.”
The pivotal role of UBTEB in the Ugandan educational landscape is to ensure uniformity, regulation, and coordination of examinations in all business and technical professions throughout the country. This crucial mandate was bestowed upon UBTEB after the Business, Technical, Vocational Education and Training Act was officially gazetted by the government in 2008. This act was a significant move by the Ministry of Education to bolster and standardize vocational and technical education in Uganda.
The entire educational community is eagerly awaiting the results, as they will shape the futures of many aspiring professionals in the country. With this announcement, hopes and aspirations of thousands of students rest in the balance, with many looking forward to using their qualifications to further their careers and contribute positively to the Ugandan economy and beyond
