No disturbing incidents have been recorded so far as the 2016 Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) exams kicked off this morning with Physics Paper 3 (Practical).
With the examinations scheduled to start at 9 am and again at 2 pm during week days, Uneb says candidates should be arriving at the examination centres 30 minutes earlier. Later in the afternoon, art students will sit for Still Life/Nature which will be taken simultaneously with Shorthand.
Approximately 323,129 registered for the national examinations this year in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology and English, Woodwork, Metal Work, Computer Studies, Latin, French and German among other subjects.
The Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) is spending UGX2bn on fighting examination malpractice during the exercise that concludes next month.
