Tugume said given the security that Uneb has always claimed, the blame is not upon the students and parents but upon the failure by management to control these forms of examination malpractice.

“The board should move on to arrest the supervisors, invigilators and scouts that were not able to execute their duties to ensure that no malpractice would be experienced in these schools,” Tugume noted.

During the release of UCE results early this week, the State Minister of Education, Jessica Alupo, expressed concern over an increase in examination malpractice cases as Uneb continues to withhold results of over 1800 students from 21 schools.

This prompted several parents and teachers to storm Uneb offices demanding for the release of their children’s results claiming this might be an error by Uneb since they earlier claimed that the board computers have faulted.

However, Alupo, has given directives to Uneb to withdraw examination centre numbers of all schools which have persistently been involved in examination malpractice.

“Impersonation, collusion, some external assistance, smuggling unauthorized materials in the examination rooms were detected by the scouts in the 2013 exams, as the leading cause of examination cheating.”
