Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | The Uganda National Examinations Board ( UNEB) has today released the 2023 Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) results, indicating a rise in performance in candidates scoring Division 1.  There was a drop in failures, which means that 329,939 (95.9%) of learners who presented themselves for the examination can progress to the Post – UCE level.

The results show that 64,782 (17.9%) candidates of 361,695 candidates scored Division 1, up from 13.5% (46,667) the previous year.

In 2023, 364,469 candidates registered for the examination; 180,471 (49.5%) were male and female 183,998 (50.5%). Of these 361,695 candidates ( 279,032 males and 182,63) appeared for the examination.

Female candidates performed better than males in the English language. In other subjects, males performed better, with the differences being very significant in History, Geography, sciences and commerce.

These are the last results under the old curriculum. The Ministry of Education is set to outline a strategy for transitioning from lower secondary to upper secondary under the new competence-based curriculum.
