Over 90% candidates already registered for PLE as UNEB warns against late registration

The Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) has urged all school heads to ensure that all candidates are registered to sit their final examinations by Monday 30th November 2020.

The UNEB Executive Secretary Dan Odongo says this is the last call to heads of examination Centres as well as parents to register all the candidates for PLE, UCE and UACE as there will not be postponement.

Odongo applauded the Centres that have registered the candidates.

Currently, UNEB has received positive response from all the districts and out of the 13, 966 PLE Centres, over 9O% have registered their candidates, while over 85% of the 3,640 Centres for UCE have registered. 

At UACE Level, registration stands at over 77% of the 2,164 Centres. 

“We therefore urge the remaining Centres to submit the registration d.ata of their candidates within the remaining days, as there will be no room for late registration. Head teachers that have registered are encouraged to download the generated draft registers and photo albums and avail them to all concerned (students and/or parents) to do another round of thorough checking to eliminate any errors”

He added that once errors are identified, they should be corrected and uploaded accordingly following the laid out procedure of uploading amendments. 

Odongo noted that Centres which are yet to submit their registration data should equally ensure that the candidates verify the information and sign against their names as confirmation of the correctness of their registration details. 

He added that it is important to critically examine and look out for errors in Names of Candidates- Spellings and order of names, photos of candidates to ensure they are not mismatched, Gender, Date and Year of birth, Funding Code, Entry Code as well as the candidates' Institutional Choices.
