Kampala, Uganda: Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) results 2022 will be officially released on Friday, 24, 2023, Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) announces. According to a top official, the results will be released by Education Minister Janet Museveni at State House, Nakasero in Kampala, as was the case with the 2022 Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE) and Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) results.
Ahead of the release, UNEB will hold a briefing on Wednesday, 22, 2023 to review the performance of students. The briefing will take place at State House, Kampala and will be attended by Mrs. Museveni and other senior officials from the Ministry of Education.
Dan Odongo, the UNEB’s executive secretary, and the board’s chairperson, Prof. Mary Okwakol, are expected to conduct the briefing. They will provide an overview of the UACE exams and present an analysis of the results. The announcement of the official date for the release of the results, and the related modalities, will be made after the briefing.
This year’s UACE exams saw a total of 97,890 students register to sit for the exams, a slight decrease from the 98,392 who sat for the same exams in 2020. Of these, 17,319 candidates were sponsored by the government under the Universal Post O’level education programme.
The exams were conducted under the theme of “Integrity and Security in the Management of Examinations: The Health and Safety of Learners is a Joint Responsibility.” UNEB spokesperson Jennifer Kalule Musamba said that the board took all necessary precautions to ensure that the exams were conducted with the utmost integrity and that the health and safety of learners were protected at all times.
The release of the UACE results is eagerly awaited by students, parents, and teachers across the country. It is expected that the UNEB will provide a detailed analysis of the performance of students and highlight any trends or patterns that emerged from the exams. This information will be useful to both educators and policymakers as they seek to improve the quality of education in Uganda.
