PLE results out today
Posted Monday, January 21 2013 at 02:45
The Uganda National Examinations Board is today expected to release the 2012 Primary Leaving Examinations which will offer successful candidates an opportunity to climb their education career ladder.
The release of the exams, which will take place at Statistics House in Kampala at 10am, is likely to remove anxiety among parents, pupils and school administrators who have anxiously been waiting for the exams for the last couple of weeks.
A total of 565,663 pupils registered to sit PLE last year, down from 535,933 in 2011.
For those who will not make it, they will defiantly have to repeat the class and sit with those currently in Primary Six this year or join some technical schools which admit candidates with more than Aggregate 28.
A Primary Seven candidate is deemed to have passed the exams if he or she garners between Aggregate 4-28.
Four years ago, Uneb introduced a system of accessing results by SMS and one is required to type PLE, leave space, fill in the candidate’s index number and send the message to 6600.
The Ministry of Education has already set January 30 and 31 as dates for selecting students joining Senior One.
Under the selection criteria, a candidate who misses their first choice of school, usually goes to the second, depending on his or her score.
Schools usually give priority to candidates who put them as their first option.
