In a much-anticipated announcement, the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) has officially released the results for the Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE) 2023.
The results reveal a notable improvement in the pass rates for Mathematics and Science subjects.
However, the most notable improvement comes from the Mathematics and Science subjects, which have historically presented challenges for students across the country.
The UNEB executive director Dan Odongo revealed that a higher proportion of the 2023 Primary Leaving Examination (PLE) candidates passed in division3 and above level, a performance UNEB says is comparable to that of 2022.
Overall statistics indicate that 749,254 pupils registered for the November 8-9 exams from 15,859 school centers across the country. This according to UNEB projected a decrease in candidates by 83,400 as weighed against 2022.
