2019 PLE Results: Candidates Register Better Grades in English and SST

KAMPALA – Primary Leaving Examination results for 2019 indicate that candidates performed well in English and Social Studies (SST).


According to results, at distinction level, 7.6% of the 683,433 candidates scored a distinction, that is between D1 and D2 in English, while 59.2% scored credits.

The 7.6% distinctions are an improvement from 2018 PLE results, where only 6.3% of the candidates scored distinctions.

In SST, 14% of the 2019 candidates scored distinctions and 78.9% scored credits, that is between distinction 3 and 6.

However, Science and Maths were not performed well. Only 4.9% of the 683,433 candidates scored distinctions in Science, a decline from 13.4% in 2018. Another 69.6% got credits in science in 2019.

In Maths, 6.0% scored distinctions, which is lower than 6.2% in 2018.

A total of 48.3% scored credits, an increase from 41% in 2018.

“In English and SST, performance improved at the distinction level.

Overall pass level rose in Science although performance at the distinction level dropped sharply.

In both English and Mathematics performance was poor in questions where candidates were required to apply knowledge in problem-solving situations or express themselves freely.

Candidates were more comfortable with questions that are direct and based on recall.

This situation has persisted over the years,” Mr Dan Odongo, the UNEB Executive Secretary, said while releasing the results in Kampala on Friday, January 17, 2020.

Mr Odongo, however, said there was an improvement in candidates’ handwriting.

“Candidates also organized and presented their work more clearly even when the answers are wrong.

The number of candidates scoring zero has also reduced greatly compared to previous years,” he said.
