Education minister Jessica Alupo

The results for last year’s Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) are to be released by the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) this Friday.

The release of the UACE follows that of the Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE) in mid January and the Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) in early February.

The early release of last year’s exams, attributed to the February 18 General Elections, will pave the way for most 2015 candidate pupils and students to begin school on Feb 22, just four days after the presidential and parliamentary polls.

Education minister Jessica Alupo is expected to preside over the function, while, as tradition dictates, the UNEB Board Chairperson Professor Mary Okwakol and Executive Secretary David Odongo, will grace the ocassion.
