PLE: Uneb forgets SST scripts in Kampala


Officials at Kalakol Primary school in Kaabong district northern Uganda, were forced to photocopy examination scripts for primary seven kids.

The Primary Leaving Examinations that take two days kicked off Monday across the country.

In Kaboong, according to URN, officials photocopied Social Studies scripts after Uganda National Examinations Board [Uneb] forgot them in Kampala.

Uneb also forgot the English examination scripts.

Only the Math and Science scripts were delivered to Kalakol Primary School.

The incident correlates with the ruling party NRM primaries where ballot papers of different districts were forgotten in Kampala and others delivered to different districts.

In Abim district, examination officials were forced to break the padlock and seal of the box containing the examination scripts as UNEB dispatched wrong keys.

Also in northern Uganda, 9 inmates of Gulu central prison were among 97 pupils who sat for PLE at Gulu prisons primary school.

In Hoima, candidates at Kaiso Primary School were forced to sit for exams at a neighbouring school after an area cholera outbreak led to its closure.

About 620,825 candidates start for PLE in 7,787 centres across the country.

The pupils started with Mathematics and Social Studies and Religious Education on Monday.

They will sit for Integrated Science and English language tomorrow, Tuesday.

Last year, 604,971 pupils registered for PLE, compared to 582,085 in 2013.
