“All applicants wishing to be admitted to the Bachelor of Laws programme for both government and private sponsorship offered by Makerere University are required to take this pre-entry examination,” he noted in statement.

This comes weeks after Uneb came out in the open to oppose the conditionality as incapable of selecting the most deserving students for the courses.

Dr Saverio Pido, the Uneb head of research and data, was reported as saying, student performance in institutions of higher learning depends more on factors like their former secondary schools, the curriculum and the processes they go through while training.

“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.

According to Mr Namoah’s statement, application forms for those intending to sit the examination are obtainable on payment of a Non-refundable Application Fee of Shs 80,000/- excluding the Bank charges at the University Senate.
