2016 UACE results out, performance improves

This time round, the results show that female candidates performed generally better than their male counterparts.


Education and sports Janet Museveni officially released the 2016 Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) results on Tuesday, indicating a significant improvement in performance compared to the previous year.

This time, the pass rate was 98.7% compared to 97.8% of 2015, UNEB executive secretary Daniel Nokrach Odongo said.

This means the failure rate dropped – from 2.2% in 2015 to 1.3%.

While it emerged that on a general scale female candidates beat their male counterparts in last year's A' Level exams, Economics and science subjects were the worst done subjects.

And under this, Biology was the worst-done of all, having 40.8% of the candidates score principal pass E.

Another blemish is that results of 64 candidates from 11 education centers were withheld, which though is a significant drop from 279 cases in the previous year.

These results were held over exam malpractice.

With the candidature up this time round, UNEB chairperson Prof. Mary Okwakol said more candidates chose arts disciplines than science subjects.

Last year saw 104,234 candidates register for the final exams, which was more than the 101, 268 who expressed interest in 2015. In essence, it means that total candidature rose by 2.9%. -
