    Uganda National Examination Board (UNEB) has released the 2011 Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education(UACE) showing a slight improvement in the general performance of major principal subjects offered compared to 2010. UNEB is the body that sets and marks national exams in the country.

    “The overall performance of candidates in the 2011 UACE examinations shows that a very high percentage of candidates 99.2 percent qualify for UACE award while in 2010, this was 98.8 percent” UNEB Secretary Mr Matthew Bukenya, releasing the results to the Education Minister, Jessica Alupo, said.

    A total of 103, 760 candidates registered for UACE examinations from 1,334 centres, compared to 101,495 candidates from 1,240 centres in 2011, indicating an increment 0f 2,265 or 2.2 percent. 102,296 candidates sat for the examinations in 2011 compared to 99,904 in 2010.

    Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry registered an increase in performance. However, Ms Alupo noted that the number of students offering Mathematics and Physics was still low at only 20 percent of the total candidates.

    Registered female candidates increased from 40,856 in 2010 to 42,341 in 2011, constituting 40.8 percent of the total number of candidates who sat for the examinations in 2011. This figure is about the same as that of 2010 which was 40.9 percent. Fewer girls, 1.1 percent, were absent, compared to male candidates; 1.5 percent of the male candidates who registered did not sit for the examinations.

    There was also an increase in the number of candidates who qualify for admission to universities and other tertiary institutions by 3,394, higher than the 1,450 increase recorded in 2010.

    Did you actually spend time and read through the contents of the article? Au ndio mbio mbio tu kujaza forum with silly headlines.... The qualify statement above doesn't mean they have passed their current level of examination but did qualify to sit the examination...
