    The Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) released the results of 2020 Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) examination.

    The Board conducted this examination between 12th April and 3rd of May, 2021 under the theme ‘’Integrity and Security in the management of Examinations; the Health and Safety of the Learners is a joint Responsibility.”

    A total of 98,392 candidates registered for the 2020 UACE examination from 1,952 centres compared to 104,476 candidates from 2,094 centres in 2019, a decline of 6,084 candidates.

    Out of the total number of registered candidates, 97,084 actually sat for exams out of which 41,190 were female.

    A total of 26,602 passed with two principle passes, 19,015 with 1 principle pass and 9,616 passed with 1 subsidiary.

    Speaking at the release of results on Friday, UNEB Executive Secretary, Mr.Daniel Odongo, said female candidates, although fewer performed better.

    “The percentage passes at the upper levels(3P and 2P) are higher while percentage passes at lower levels and failure rate among female candidates are lower than for males,” he explained.

    Odongo also noted that there was a general improvement in performance as compared to 2019.

    We Don’t Need To Be Threatened – President Museveni Warns Teachers Union Leaders…

    Published

    on

    President Tibuhaburwa Museveni

    President Museveni has assured teachers and key players in the education sector to stop using threats while pressurizing him into reopening learning institutions.

    During celebrations of the National Teacher’s day at Kololo, Museveni said they don’t have to be threatened.

    “”This lockdown time was for survival and am proud that we shielded our people from dying. We don’t need to be threatened. Why do you threaten me?” he asked.

    Museveni was responding to issues raised by Filbert Baguma the Secretary General Uganda National Teachers Union (UNATU) regarding the economic troubles faced by teachers who were put out of work as well as the increase in teenage pregnancies among the female learners who are stuck at home.

    “In Brazil they reached 600,000 deaths who died of corona. Here we have only seen 3000 deaths in one year and seven months. You think that is not important?” he asked.

    Having maintained total closure of learning institutions since March last year, Museveni says safeguarding the lives of learners supersedes any other concerns raised by stakeholders.

    “No amount of lost time is greater than lost lives,” he noted giving himself as an example of how he fought in the bush war to stabilize the country first.

    “The problem is some of you have not seen problems. I had to interrupt my life for 8 years in Tanzania fighting Idi Amin. Then 5 years in the bush that’s a total of 13 years. Is anybody better off than myself, the one who lost 13 years,” he emphasized.

    “The thing was to survive. Even if I lost time, if there is such a big danger it’s better than dying,” he added.

    Museveni emphasized that when they went to fight, some of the children left school and joined them in the bush and when they came back after many years of fighting, they started a Kadogo school in Mbarara and called them to resume their abandoned studies of which many of them are now doctors and what not.

    “You cannot compare death with losing time, jobs, money. That is reversible. I can lose today but tomorrow I will regain what I lost. But death is irreversible,” he said.

    First Lady and Minister of Education and sports Janet Kataha Museveni revealed that so far 60% of the teachers have been fully vaccinated.

    “These courses are currently tenable at 22 Chartered Universities (10 public and 12 private) and 36 other Tertiary institutions in Uganda.

    Education Minister Janet Museveni Halts Transfer Of Secondary School Teachers…

    Published

    The Minister of Education and Sports spokesperson Mr. Dennis Mugimba has disclosed that the First Lady who also doubles as the senior education Minister, Janet Museveni has halted the transfer of secondary school teachers with immediate effect.

    While addressing media today, Mr. Mugimba said the Minister made the decision after noticing inconsistencies in the transfer exercise which was marred by delays in getting the teachers on payroll, replacing the transferred teachers some of who have failed to report to new schools they have been relocated to.

    “The Minister of Education and Sports received credible information that the way secondary school teachers in government schools are transferred, was having many gaps,” Mr. Mugimba said.

    “It’s against this backdrop that the minister decided that the transfer exercise is halted for the time being until the loopholes have been fixed,” he added.

    Mr. Mugimba held, “She instructed that as a ministry we temporarily stop the transferring of secondary school teachers with immediate effect until an exercise which is going to be conducted by the Education Service Commission takes place.”

    He emphasized that this exercise will identify how long the teachers on payroll have actually been there and how many contract staff are in each school.

    “The validation exercise is expected to begin once secondary schools are reopened following a pronouncement by President Museveni,” Mr. Mugimba said.

    He also revealed that the ministry has trained 54 national trainers to train local governments about the Standard Operating Procedures that should be observed in educational institutions of learning amid planned reopening of schools.

    “We trained them about the issue of roles, who does what to ensure that our institutions of education are complying with these SOPs especially the role of the headteacher or the head of institution that is the principal, vice chancellor in ensuring compliance with SOPs,” he said.
