He made the announcement during a meeting with district, municipalities and city school inspectors. These are responsible for coordinating the administration of the PLE.
Mr Odongo said PLE is one of the most challenging exams conducted by the board. He said this came mainly because of the large number of candidates at this particular level of education.
“While PLE is conducted over two days, it feels like a month for us due to the vast number of participants.” Mr Odongo said.
District inspectors of schools collaborate with UNEB to organize and coordinate PLE. Over 200 inspectors attended the meeting.
The meeting took place at the UNEB offices in Kyambogo, Kampala. The inspectors were directed to recruit chief invigilators, invigilators and scouts.
They were also told to select individuals responsible for distributing examination papers to the centres.
“These individuals have a significant role to play because we need to employ at least 60,000 people to handle various tasks during the exams. However, some local governments do not have the funds to facilitate them, hence we have to come in,” Mr Odongo explained.
