Ms. Jennifer Kalule Musamba, the UNEB Principal Public Relations Officer advised that schools will access the results through the UNEB portal, the same they used to register candidates
“Every school with a UNEB Center Number can access our portal. The portal was used during registration of candidates and it will be used to send results once they are released (on Friday),” she said.
“Once they are released, the results for each school will be automatically uploaded to the portal,” she said.
Musumba said no hard copies of the results will be available at the UNEB offices for now, until a later date when conditions permit.
“UNEB will officially inform the District, Municipal and City Inspectors of Schools to collect the hard copies of the results from UNEB offices,” she added .
