Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) has Thursday released the official timetables for the 2019 examinations that will start this October to early December 2019.
UNEB executive secretary Dan N. Odongo said this year’s theme will be: “Integrity and Security in the Management of Examinations is my Responsibility”.
According to Odongo, registration of candidates has ended.
He said the final information such as names of candidates, their index numbers and subjects for which they have registered has been sent to examination centres countrywide for final confirmation and verification by the candidates.
“The registration status of candidates can be established from the schools/ centres, or by using the link https://ereg.uneb.ac.ug/reg_status ; or via SMS by typing the full index number and sending to 6600.”
Odongo said centres having not paid full examination fees or for student not registered, the status will reflect “not registered”.
Registration figures for 3 examinations are given in the table below in terms of funding & gender (government and private).
On her part, Rosemary Nansubuga Seninde, the State Minister for Primary Education, said: “we would like to assure the nation that we are fully prepared and committed to conduct valid, reliable, equitable and quality assessment of learners’ achievements in a professional & innovative manner as stipulated within the regulations and policies of UNEB.”
She said a section of media has carried front page stories on purported sources of examination leakages from the UNEB Printing press.
“The untrue stories have been based on speculations and imagination of people who have very little knowledge on UNEB processes,” she told press at Uganda Media Centre in Kampala.
