An O”level examination
Results of last year’s Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE), commonly known as “O” Levels, have been released this Wednesday morning at Nakawa Vocational Institute.
The results were expected to be released last Friday but allegations of cheating are said to have delayed the announcement as Uneb was tasked to properly investigate the cases of alleged cheating before the release.
It is understood that over the last few days, the Ntinda based examinations body has interviewed several school administrators and teachers over the allegations.
Speaking to Daily Monitor on Tuesday, Uneb Executive Secretary Mathew Bukenya said the board was equally concerned that the release had been delayed a thing he said could affect the candidates preparing to join “A Levels.”
Sources say a number of “top” in Kampala and Wakiso were on a red-list to have their results withheld over exam malpractice.
More than 220000 students sat the UCE examination in 2011. Senior five is expected to start on February 20.
