REGISTRATION FEES FOR UNEB 2023 PLE UCE AND UACE CANDIDATES
Government will pay the registration fees for all candidates sponsored under the Universal Primary Education (UPE), Universal Secondary Education ( USE)& the Universal Post 0-Level Education and Training (UPOLET) Programs.
The Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) hereby informs parents and candidates that the registration process for the 2023 Examinations for all levels ie. Primary Leaving Examination, (PLE), Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE), and Üganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) is underway.
The normal registration period will go on until May 31, 2023. For candidates who may miss registering during this time, a period has been set for late registration, which attracts a surcharge. The surcharge for late registration from June 1st -30th will be 100% for PLE, and 50% for both UCE and UACE Candidates. The last phase of late registration will run from July 1st -31st, attracting a surcharge of 100% at all levels. After July 31t, there will be no opportunity to register for the 2023 examinations.
SECTION. 32- UNEB ACT 2021: MISAPPROPRIATION OF EXAMINATION REGISTRATION FEES
UNEB equally cautions Heads of Centres or their representatives to ensure that all the UNEB registration fees are remitted to the Board, and that the students are dully registered for the examination. Anyone who fails to do so commits an offence and is liable, on conviction, to a fine not exceeding two thousand currency points (Forty million shillings), or a term of imprisonment not exceeding ten years or both.
SECTION. 33 OF UNEB ACT 2021- CHARGING FEES NOT PRESCRIBED BY UNEB
It Is an offence to charge fees not prescribed by UNEB and refer to such fees as ‘UNEB Fees’. Heads of Centres and School Directors are therefore cautioned against calling any other administrative costs as UNEB fees. Such an offence attracts a penalty of two thousand currency points (Forty Million Shillings) or a term of imprisonment not exceeding ten years or both.
REGISTERING PRIVATE CANDIDATES AS GOVERNMENT SPONSORED CANDIDATES
Heads of Government aided schools are put on notice not to register privately sponsored candidates as government sponsored candidates. This is a fraudulent practice which causes financial loss to Government. Any head of an examination centre or school director that will be found indulging in this practice shall pay twice the amount that has been defrauded.
