The normal registration period for this year’s candidates of the Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE), Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE), and Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) ends on May 31, 2023. Accordingly, the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) calls on the responsible parties to ensure that all potential candidates are dully registered during this period to avoid a surcharge.
Those responsible for uploading the candidates’ bio-data are advised to verify the accuracy of the data submitted with the candidates, before final submission. Look out for spelling and order of names, date of birth, gender, institutional choices, and ensure that the correct photograph is attached. In case there is need for amendment after submission, the responsible person is advised to contact UNEB directly. Where the amendment involves changing the name and date of birth, please come along with a birth certificate and a letter of consent from the parent/guardian. Amendments made before May 31, will be free of charge. Thereafter, a fee will be charged for any alteration to the registration data.
