The Uganda National Examinations Board has released the programme for registration of candidates for the forthcoming national examinations.
Addressing journalists at the Uganda Media Center, the board’s Secretary, Daniel Odongo, said registration of candidate’s starts today electronically, and will run for only five weeks.
According to UNEB, primary leaving candidates will be required to pay Shs34,000; those in senior four, Shs164,000; and those in senior six, Shs186,000.

The UNEB Executive Secretary Daniel Odongo said the number of students who got pregnant this year is high compared to those registered in previous exams.
He says blocking them from sitting exams is a double jeopardy. Ends.
