The results show that female candidates performed better in arts subjects and the male candidates performed better in science subjects.

While releasing the results, the UNEB Executive Secretary, Mathew Bukenya, said that despite a slight increase in performance, use of pamphlets by teachers has still contributed to the poor performance especially in rural areas.

He applauded teachers for the drop in malpractice with only 34 candidates having their results withheld compared to the 404 candidates in 2012.

Fagil Mandy, the UNEB Chairman, said that in order to attain the required 2040 education goals, Uganda needs to develop a clear destination of learners, change emotional attitudes of students, skills development and to implement physical education for all schools.

Though girls have performed better than boys, the Minister of Education, Hon. Jessica Alupo, is still aggrieved by the low number of candidates who still offer science subjects, an issue she says will continue to impact negatively to the country.

The Minister has blamed private schools for registering candidates for only art subjects saying that it is one of the reasons as to why the country is still registering a low number of science candidates.

However, she advised all those candidates who qualify for tertiary admission to apply for vocational courses that will enable them acquire skills and acquire jobs easily.

However, the performance has still continued to decline so much in rural areas.

Performance has greatly improved in Economics, Islam, CRE, Physics, Agriculture and Chemistry, Maths has not changed while students’ performance in Entrepreneurship skills, History, Literature in English and Biology has declined.
