A total of 101,269 candidates registered for UACE 2017 a decrease of 2,974 candidates for the candidates that sat for UACE 2016 and only 100,066 appeared for the exams

Prof. Mary Okwakol said that cases of malpractice at UACE 2017 were few and only 79 candidates from 24 centers have been withheld over malpractice.

She also said that examination malpractice leads to poor judicial officers and engineers and therefore this should be a matter of everyone’s concern.

The Executive secretary Odongo said that 98.5% candidates qualified for the award of UACE and there is a general performance registered in 2017 UACE exams.

Girls performed better than boys in all UACE large entry subjects with an exception of Art & Subsidiary I.T.

Literature in English, CRE, physics and Biology showed better performance than in 2016, with a noticeable drop in History, Geography and maths. Economics and entrepreneurship had better performance at the principal A pass level

Performance in sciences have remained low with an average of 50% of candidates unable to obtain a principal pass

Poor mastery of English language affected performance in science subjects. Evidence was seen in inability to follow instructions while carrying out practical tests and the quality of answers given.

Other challenges include; misspellings of technical terms, writing unbalanced equations, lack of mathematical skills, failure to plot graphs among others.

Prof. Mary Okwakol revealed Candidature has reduced by 2.9%. This trend has been observed since 2014

Universities and other institutions of higher learning will exhibit opportunities available for students.

Still on uneb, Prof. Mary Okwakol said: “It has come to our notice that Bundibugyo and Kabarole districts have started issuing documents claiming that they are PLE certificates, this is an illegal act.”
