Mirundi has noted that this is solely aimed at undermining the education system in the country and the work of the National Examinations body UNEB in producing credible academics.

“How can you tell me that someone who has sat exams and passed with flying color is again tested? This shows that you have no trust in UNEB and the results that were accorded to him,” Mirundi wondered

While speaking on a local TV station on Thursday night, Mirundi added: “I am made to wonder which questions are set for someone who has no experience in a field; this should be scraped with immediate effect.”

Mirundi cautioned the Ministry of Education to discourage the vice which is likely to overflow to other fields and universities in the country and yet it is a clear despise of government institutions.


The National Examinations body recently came out and opposed the pre-entry conditionality as incapable of selecting the most deserving students for the courses.

Dr Saverio Pido, the UNEB head of research and data noted: “There is need for the law school and the senate to revisit the use of pre-entry exams as the sole procedure for selection and admission to law school.”

Dr Pido added that the pre-entry exams were an additional cost that could lock out potential law students who may not have resources to come to Kampala where the exam is administered.

The Pre-Entry Examination apparently covers areas of Aptitude and analytical skills, comprehension skills, Communication skills, General knowledge on contemporary issues such as development, politics, economics, technology, etc.
