The 2023 Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) examinations enter day two with calls on candidates to arrive at exam centres on time.
Jennifer Kalule, the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) spokesperson says candidates must arrive at least thirty minutes before the start of the examinations, or not later than 15 minutes after the starting time.
This is after one candidate in Iganga district yesterday missed the History paper due to late coming.
Kalule notes that there were a few reports of invigilators who arrived late for the examination in the morning, mainly due to a heavy downpour that disrupted the delivery of examination materials to some centres.
“Over the weekend, the Board was able to effectively deliver all the examination scripts to the respective stations, despite the challenges of rain and flooding of some roads in some parts of the country. This morning, Head of Centres countrywide, braved the rains to collect the examination papers from their sub-stations, to the various Centres, to enable the examination start in good time,” Kalule said, urging invigilators to keep time as well.
Today, the arts candidates will write Economics Paper 1 and 2, while the science candidates will write Chemistry Paper 3 (practical).
