The government in 2021 introduced a new post-covid curriculum to help learners cope under the automatic promotion arrangement. This became necessary the two year lag which came as a result of the pandemic.
UNEB Executive Director Dan Odongo released a statement on Friday. He said they will not depart from their earlier decision. This is to use the new curriculum for the national exams this year.
“The board would like to assure head teachers and learners that UNEB will not depart from the guidelines provided by the ministry regarding the abridged curriculum. This is therefore to reaffirm that this year’s assessment will be in accordance with the abridged curriculum arrangements as approved by the Ministry of Educations and Sports,” Odongo said.
As a reminder to teachers and students, he said they will carryout these exams between October 14 to November 16 for UCE. November 7 to 9 for PLE and November 18 to December 9 for UACE.
Many across the country were concerned saying this new curriculum hasn’t been spread across every school. However, this has reportedly already been rectified.
So this means that the students will work for 20% of the marks during the school assessment. And UNEB exams will only account for 80%.
