UNEB withholds UCE results of 1,035 candidates over malpractices

Uganda National Examination Board (UNEB) on Thursday said it had withheld 2022 Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) results of at least 1,035 candidates due to examination malpractice.

“A total of 1,035 results will be withheld in accordance with Section 5 (2) (b) of the UNEB Act No 1 of 2021. The number of results to be withheld has been reducing steadily at this level,” the board’s executive director, Dan N. Odongo said while releasing the 2022 senior four results at State Lodge in Nakasero.

According to him, examination centres from which results are withheld will be notified through their portals.

“The measures put in resulted in a welcome reduction in the cases of malpractice. Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics have been most affected, with external assistance, collusion among candidates, and impersonation and script substitution as the common cases,” he added.
