0

Mrs. Mike Masikye Nangosya, the Director of Examinations at Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) has called parents and guardians of candidates to take a keen interest in the registration of their children and ensure that the correct biodata is captured.

According to Nangosya, the involvement of these parties will help with the correct spelling and order of candidates’ names as captured on the birth certificates, the date of birth as per the prescribed format, and also the subjects offered in the case of UCE and UACE candidates.

“At the end of the registration period, UNEB in addition to requiring schools to display candidates’ registers, will this time also make it possible for parents to check the registration status of their children through SMS on their handsets” Nangosya further explained.

The Director of Examinations made these remarks while addressing Journalists about the registration of 2023 PLE, UCE, and UACE candidates at the media center on Thursday.

At this briefing, UNEB highlighted that the registration process for the 2023 examinations for all three levels that started on 1st April is ongoing and the normal registration period will go until 31st May.

In this normal registration period, candidates at the PLE level will pay a registration fee of Shs34,000, those at UCE will pay Shs164,000, and their counterparts at UACE will pay Shs186,000 and according to UNEB, no extra charge should be collected.

For candidates who may miss registering during the normal registration, a period that attracts a surcharge has been set between 1 and 30 June for late registration. This surcharge will be 100% for PLE candidates and 50% for both UCE and UACE candidates.

The Examination body further clarified that after the end of the last phase of late registration which will run from 1st to 31st July, there will be no other opportunity to register for the 2023 examinations hence those that could have failed within that period will wait for the next year 2024.

On the issue of misappropriating examination fees, the Board has cautioned heads of centers and their representatives to ensure that all the UNEB registration fees are remitted to the board because failure to do this, risks committing an offense that is liable to a fine not exceeding 2,000 currency points or a term of imprisonment not exceeding ten years or both.

UNEB has also hinted at the issue of the missing 2019 PLE results slips for the 51 Kampala schools and it noted that they have worked out an amicable arrangement with KCCA to ensure that the results slips of over 3,000 learners are reprinted and issued to them in good time for the registration exercise.
