In an official interview with the CES Director of State Examination in the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Mr. Wani Lado Lobuju explained that the pupils are sitting for two types of examinations, the Basic and Primary Leaving Examinations.

However, pupils sitting for the Primary Leaving Examinations, (PLE) a Ugandan curriculum standard for the last time, the Education Ministry will face it out by next year.

“This year we expect good performance because the pupils completed their syllabus in time. The only problem in the department of examinations is mobility due to delays from the Ministry of Finance,” he said.
