Must read

Nsambya Hillside-Western Campus has emerged as the best school in mathematics and biology, the just-released 2023 Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) examinations indicate. The examinations were released yesterday by the minister of education and sports, Janet Kataha Museveni.

According to the Uganda National Examination Board (UNEB), a total of 349,459 candidates registered for the 2023 UCE Examination, compared to 364,467 in 2022; however, boys outshined girls, with 20.1% attaining first grades against 15.8%.

The results indicate that Nsambya Hillside Western Campus had 30 students who registered and sat for the 2023 UCE exams, all of whom achieved first grades. The results further show that of the 30 students, 19 were boys and 11 were girls. Nuwagaba Derrick emerged as the best student, scoring 11 points.

Based in Western Uganda, the school emerged as the best in Mbarara and the best in mathematics and biology in the whole country. In Biology, Nsambya Hillside outcompeted Seeta High School, Uganda Martyrs SS, Namugongo, Namilyango College, and others.

In mathematics, Hillside was followed by Rubongi Army Secondary School Annex; Mt.St.Marys, Namagunga; Lowell Girls School, Nsimbe; and Bukedea Comprehensive School.

The school had nine students with distinction one and three with distinction one, making it the best school in the country. Conversely, it emerged as the best school in mathematics, with 11 students scoring distinctions one and one student getting distinction two, hence topping Mbarara and the entire country.

In the previous exams, Nsambya Hillside topped Mbarara schools, exhibiting marvellous performance, with all 32 students scoring first grades. 

The school beat 42 giant schools, which include Ntare School, Maryhill High School, St. Joseph’s Vocational School, Mbarara High School, and others. It is not this last year; the school has, for the last decade, been marvellously performing well in the western region and country. 

Interviewed for this story, Namara Chloe, the director of Nsambya Hillside, said, “We are thrilled by this great performance not only in the district but in the whole country. All of us attained first grades.

She attributed the excellent performance to qualified and experienced teachers, a well-equipped library, and the school’s commitment to offering quality education.

“We prepared and offered our students a high-quality education that would pave the way for them to excel not only in the exams but also in the turbulent world that awaits them after school,” she said.

“Winning is our culture since we offer practical skills, quality education, and a conducive environment for learners to excel,” she stated.

In addition, the school provides an all-round education with much emphasis on academics and upholding morals through guidance and counselling services.
