UCE EXAM PROCESS STARTS TODAY

The Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) Examinations for the 2020 candidates will officially start today with the briefing of candidates, according to the Uganda Examinations Board (UNEB).

“The briefing must be done by the headteachers themselves. During the session, candidates must be made aware of the instructions contained in the timetables and the Rules and Regulations on examination conduct.

The headteachers must explain clearly the consequences of cheating in the examination…cases of cheating by candidates usually arise from lack of briefing to candidates,” UNEB executive secretary Dan Odongo said in a press statement on Thursday.

The briefing is also aligned to the official national prayers and dedication for the candidates and the examination process under all faith affiliations, scheduled to take place from Friday 26- Sunday 28, 2021.

Candidates will start writing their examinations on Monday, March 1, 2021, starting with Physics practical in the morning and Fine Art-Still Life/ Nature in the afternoon.

A total of 333,889 candidates (50.1% female) are scheduled to sit their examinations from 3,935 Examination Centres.

This year’s examinations will be conducted under the theme ‘Integrity and security in the management of examinations; the health and safety of learners is a joint responsibility’.
