UNEB Deploys Over 100,000 Invigilators As UCE Examinations Start Today

The Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) is strapped to the teeth for the forthcoming national examinations. The announcement marks the commencement of the 2023 UCE final examinations countrywide.

The Primary Leaving Examination (PLE) and Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) will follow in November.

With the examinations underway, the exam body has deployed 110,000 individuals to manage the smooth running of the exams. This includes 107,941 invigilators, 1,113 supervisors, and 1,036 security officers.

UNEB’s Executive Director, Daniel Odongo revealed that over 364,000 candidates registered for the 2023 UCE exams.

Among these, 118,000 candidates are government funded while 254,000 are privately sponsored. A total of 3,800 centres across the country have been registered to conduct the examinations.

Additionally, Odongo says there are 700 special needs students this year among the UCE candidates. He also says 59 candidates are inmates from Luzira prison.

Candidates will begin today with Geography Paper 1 in the morning and in the afternoon will do Geography Paper 2.

Distribution of examination papers to different centers across the country started on Saturday according to Odongo.

“I and my team have been monitoring the station since Saturday and all seems okay. We have not received any bad reports from the field of maybe bad weather or bad roads. We had anticipated some hitches in Karamojo but we started distribution in that region earlier,” he said.
