The Ugandan government will announce the results of the UCE on Friday.
Ms Janet Museveni, the Minister of Education, is expected to announce the 2020 Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) results on Friday.
This is the second set of national exams to be published after the publication of the Primary Leaving Examination (PLE) results two weeks ago.
Mr Patrick Muida, the Ministry of Education’s spokesman, told KFM that the Uganda National Examination Board (Uneb) would update Ms Museveni on Wednesday on student performance.
Mr Muida said that the findings would be released strictly in accordance with Covid-19 normal operating procedures (SOPs).
Before entering the location, all officials from the Ministry of Education, Uneb, and media must undergo a Covid-19 test.
The UCE exams are being published at a time when the Ministry of Education has not yet completed Senior One selection, which is typically done prior to the publication of Senior Four results.
This implies that once the lockdown is released, the Ministry of Education will be required to conduct selections for Senior One and Five.
Ms Museveni said after the announcement of the 2020 PLE results that the Ministry of Education would establish dates for Senior One selection once the lockdown is lifted.
The 42-day lockdown imposed on June 18 will expire on Thursday, although it is unclear if it will be prolonged.
Schools have now turned to online admissions, which are still taking place in many schools despite repeated requests from the Ministry of Education for schools to halt this practice.
A total of 333,889 applicants from 3,935 test centres enrolled for the 2020 UCE. Males made up 49.8% of them, while females made up 50.1 percent.
148,135 applicants are eligible for Universal Secondary Education (USE), whereas 185,754 candidates are not eligible for USE.
