This year, the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) will conduct Four sets of Examinations; the Primary Leaving Examination (PLE), the Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) for both the Old and New Curricula, and the Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE).

Dan Odongo, UNEB Executive Director said that this will be the first time UNEB is conducting the UCE examination based on the New Lower Secondary Curriculum (NLSC), and arrangements for this examination are on course.

“This is the last time UNEB is conducting the UCE Examination under the Old curriculum. Kindly encourage all those interested and qualify for this examination to please use this opportunity and register. It is a one-off opportunity and UNEB will not Conduct UCE Exams under the old curriculum next year,” Odongo said.

He added that only candidates who passed PLE (Grades 1, 2, 3, and 4) or its equivalent and have attended four years of Ordinary Level Education may be registered for this UCE Examination. The PLE Grades shall be verified automatically by the e-registration software for those who have sat the PLE within the periods specified the circular on registration sent to schools at the commencement of the registration exercise, or earlier. Candidates should provide their correct index number and year of sitting for PLE.

The New Lower Secondary Curriculum requires candidates to register for a minimum of eight (8) and a maximum of Nine (9) subjects. Continuous Assessment (CA) Scores for the subjects offered, as well as Project scores shall be a requirement for certification.

Odongo clarified that normal registration of candidates will close on May 31, 2024 and that candidates who will miss registering during this time, a period has been set for late registration, which attracts a surcharge.

“The government will pay the registration fees of all candidates under any of the three programs of the UPE, USE and Universal Post O-Level and Training. Heads of these Centres are advised to ensure that they submit the registration data of their candidates during the period of normal registration,” Odongo said.
