The Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES) has announced that the 2020 Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) results will be released on Friday.
This is according to the Ministry Spokesperson Patrick Muinda who has told The Ugandan Wire that the Uganda National Examination Board (UNEB) will brief the Education Minister Janet Museveni about the results on Wednesday ahead of Friday’s August 20, 2021 release.
“UNEB will brief the minister on Wednesday and the exams will be released on Friday under strict observance to the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs),” Muinda told The Ugandan Wire.
As has been the norm, the candidates and other stakeholders will recieve the results using the Short Message Services (SMS) on mobile phones after the official release.
From what we have gathered, there were a total of 98,393 learners that sat for UACE examinations in April, 2021 and out of these 57,264 were female.
Unlike the years before the pandemic, school administrators will not receive hard copies of results instantly due to restrictions on gatherings and movements. UNEB will instead inform the district, municipal and city inspectors of schools to collect the hard copies of the results from UNEB at a later date.
The release comes at a time when all Education Institutions, except Medical Schools, are still closed to physical interactions due to COVID-19.
