The Uganda National Examination Board (UNEB) has warned learners against early pregnancy noting that this is the last time a provision of 45 extra minutes over the same will be accepted.
Addressing journalists in Kampala, the board’s spokesperson Jennifer Kalule said that they have so far recorded 6 live births by candidate mothers during the examination period.
Five of these mothers have been able to continue with the examinations, including one who had a still birth.
She says even though the board is grateful to the Ministry of Education and Sports for allowing registration of pregnant learners, this may not be allowed post Covid-19 pandemic era.
The UCE exams are in their 3rdweek .
