Two UCE Candidates Deliver Right Before Exams

The Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) revealed that two UCE candidates delivered babies shortly before exams.

Apparently, this happened before the physics and chemistry exams on Monday and Tuesday respectively.

The UNEB principal communications officer, Ms Jenipher Kalule said one of the students hails from Kabale district. She apparently delivered a healthy baby boy about an hour before her exam.

The hound mother reportedly named her child after UNEB Executive Director Daniel Odongo. In addition to that, she managed to sit for her physics paper.

“The candidates delivered at 8am in the morning and shortly after, went to schools to write her next paper, scheduled for 9am,” said Ms Kalule.

The second candidate from Gulu delivered by C-section on Monday night and appeared on Tuesday to do her chemistry paper.

Mr Odongo addressed the press at UNEB headquarters recently. In his address, he said these two bring to the total of UCE candidates who have given birth since exams began to three.

One candidate last week gave birth to a baby girl on Thursday at a school located in Kampala. She also subsequently continued with her examinations after her delivery.

“According to the manual on the conduct of examinations, all these candidates qualify for an extra 45 minutes offered to special needs candidates. In case of these mothers, they are expected to take off time in the middle of the examination to breastfeed their babies,” Ms Kalule said.
