Assessment body Uganda National Examinations Board (Uneb) executive secretary Dan N Odongo has released the official examination timetables for 2020 Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE); Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE), and Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE).
Odongo explained that “the 2020 examinations are being held in 2021 because of the need to make up for time lost by the candidates during the lockdown due to Covid19.”
The 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.’
“This year’s theme has been modified to emphasise the health and safety of learners. However, it also speaks to the health and safety of everyone involved in conducting these examinations,” added the executive secretary.
“The theme highlights integrity and security because globally, we are being faced with the challenge of declining ethical values and morals. It should be noted that the credibility of the examination body rests on the authenticity of the procedures, processes and practices under which the examinations have been conducted.”
He thus warned those planning to cheat.
“Uneb strongly warns all persons who are contemplating any involvement in examination malpractice, that the Board will be very harsh on them this time round,” cautioned Odongo.
Here are the official timetables:
