Uganda National Examinations Board UNEB has come out to clear the air about news making rounds on different media platforms that it is clashing with ministry of education and sports about the reopening of schools . and uneb has released a PRESS RELEASE to clarify the air
” Uganda National Examinations Board has not ”clashed” with the Ministry of Education and Sports on reopening of schools.
” It has come to the attention of Uganda Examinations Baord( UNEB) that there is news going around on social media indicating that UNEB has clashed with the ministry education and sports on reopening of schools , and has not set any plans for national examinations, we would like to clarify that this is not correct” reads the statement.
Several media houses have been calling UNEB to find out its state of readiness to conduct the national exams and when those exams would be conducted.
The response each time has been that UNEB will not make any comments on how ready it is to conduct the examinations, or even when the examinations would be done until there is an Official communication from either H.E the president or the Hon. minister of education and sports on the reopening of schools .
This does not amount to a ‘clash’. UNEB is proceeding with its preparations to conduct the national examinations at an appropriate time, and in accordance with a revised school calendar which will be published by Ministry of Education and Sports when schools reopen .
