The Uganda National Examination Board (UNEB) has withheld Primary Leaving Examination results for 2,220 candidates for alleged malpractices.
According to UNEB, some members of the examination’s body support staff at the district level that were supposed to assist in the delivery and transportation of the exams were involved in some cases of malpractice. The largest numbers of withheld results are from Bundibugyo and Kasese districts.
The UNEB Executive Secretary, Dan Odongo also noted that several examination distributors in the districts of Nakasongola, and the greater Masaka areas who were entrusted with delivering the papers to different centres, opened the envelopes to access the examination papers.
Odongo says that many teachers were not convinced that their learners had learnt enough and could sit for the examinations.
