Uganda National Examination Board (UNEB) has warned schools against selling result slips to the students as they released the 2018 Uganda Certificate of Education results today at Statistics House in Kampala.
The UNEB executive Secretary, Daniel Odong said that any school that is charging students extra money when they come to collect their results is doing so illegally.
“Any school that is charging students extra money when they come to collect their results is doing so illegal. It should only be school fees and other school requirements but not for the result slips.” Odong said.
He called upon parents and students who are told to pay for result slips to report the schools to UNEB.
“We want to ask that these schools are reported to UNEB.” He said.
“Result slips and certificates remain the only authentic proof of performance and candidates should collect these from their respective schools from where they registered.” The UNEB executive Secretary added.
UNEB also promised to intensify crackdown on such schools and will be penalized for their illegal actions.
Last year, 336,740 candidates registered for the examination from 3,658 centres out of whom 169,984 were boys and 166,756 were girls. This time round, more candidates, 288,387 passed the examinations, compared to 287,350 in 2017.
Meanwhile, the selection of senior five students will take place on 14th to February 15, 2019 at the UMA show ground in Kampala and the reporting date for the selected students is 25th February.
