The Uganda National Examination Board has warned private schools across the country to guard against conmen, who are soliciting money from head teachers, hoodwinking them that they help them block the cancellation of their exams.
The Executive Secretary, Mr. Dan Odongo has called on schools not to inflate examination fees, adding that the UNEB fees have not been increased at all. Mr. Odongo was addressing the media this morning at the Media Centre in Kampala. He stressed that if any additional charges must be added by the school for administrative purposes, the school should clearly explain to the parents, and such dues MUST NOT, in any way, be referred to as ‘UNEB fees/ Registration.
In a statement penned by the Executive Director of UNEB, Mr. Dan Odongo disregards circulating reports that UNEB may consider online examinations.
According to UNED Executive Director there is a fake Facebook account in the names of UNEB circulating reports that UNEB is considering administering online examinations to its candidates.
Following the release of Uganda Primary Leaving exams last week in which the prominent and bigger schools had been beaten by smaller and less known schools, there were claims of a separate marking system for the schools.
