Uneb Grading System: Dan Odongo Clarifies It’s Not Selective

Following a recent statement from the Minister of Education and Sports, Janet Museveni, while addressing concerns about the grading system used by the Uganda National Examinations Board (Uneb). The Minister, through a statement issued by the Ministry’s spokesperson, Mr Denis K. Mugimba, emphasized that the Uneb grading system is not selective.

The Minister’s statement comes in response to claims made by some individuals suggesting that the grading system favors certain candidates over others.

The board executive secretary Mr Dan Odongo clarified that the Uneb grading system is designed to be fair and objective, ensuring that students are assessed based on their actual performance in examinations.

It is important to note that the Uneb grading system employs a standardized approach, which takes into account the difficulty level of each examination and the performance of the entire cohort.

This ensures that students are evaluated on a level playing field, regardless of their background or school attended.

Mr Odongo clarified that the grading system is reviewed and updated

Mr Dan Odongo further emphasized that the grading system is continuously reviewed and updated to maintain its fairness and relevance. The Uneb board, in collaboration with education stakeholders, regularly monitors and evaluates the system to make necessary improvements.

The Minister’s statement serves to dispel any misconceptions surrounding the Uneb grading system and reaffirms the commitment of the Ministry to provide an equitable and transparent assessment process for all students.

It is crucial for students, parents, and educators to have confidence in the grading system, as it plays a vital role in evaluating academic progress and facilitating future educational opportunities.

Mr  Odongo’s clarification underscores the importance of understanding and trusting the grading system.

By ensuring objectivity and fairness, the system aims to provide a reliable measure of students’ knowledge and skills, enabling them to pursue further education and contribute to the development of the nation.
