The second day of the 2023 Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) examinations is underway, accompanied by a reminder to candidates and invigilators to adhere to the stipulated time schedule.
Jennifer Kalule, spokesperson for the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB), emphasized the importance of candidates arriving promptly at their exam centers.
Kalule specified that candidates should aim to be at the examination venue at least thirty minutes before the scheduled start or, at the latest, 15 minutes after the commencement of the examinations. The caution comes in response to a reported incident in Iganga district where a candidate missed the History paper due to tardiness.
Acknowledging the challenges posed by inclement weather, Kalule mentioned instances of invigilators arriving late in the morning due to heavy rainfall affecting the delivery of examination materials to certain centers.
Despite these challenges, she commended the efforts of the Head of Centres nationwide who braved the rains over the weekend to ensure the timely distribution of examination scripts.
