Uganda’s exam body, the Uganda National examinations Board (UNEB) has learnt of unscrupulous individuals moving around schools and approaching head teachers under the pretext that UNEB shall withhold the results of such schools due to their involvement in forms of exam malpractice.
UNEB Executive Director, Dan Odongo, says in case the results of schools have been withheld due to suspected examination malpractice, the policy of UNEB is to notify in writing, the affected schools as well as the district examination officials.
It is then, that Odongo says, schools are then formally invited to appear before the relevant Committee of the Board to be accorded a fair hearing, not as some people are doing.
As a result of this report, UNEB has condemned acts of extortion and warned head teachers and the general public not to allow themselves to be hoodwinked and exploited.
Odongo says the Board maintains and observes a high level of confidentiality, integrity and professionalism in the processes, procedures and practices.
He rallied the public to work closely with UNEB so as to stamp out the criminal elements undermining the credibility of the country’s education system.
UNEB releases UCE 2020 results tomorrow, Friday at an event at the State House, Entebbe to be graced by Education Minister, Janet Kataha Museveni.
