UNEB, NIRA set to register learners.

The Uganda National Examination Board (UNEB) is embarking on a nationwide exercise to register learners in secondary schools to collect continuous assessment (CA) scores with effect from term one of 2023.

This is in accordance with the revised lower secondary school curriculum where all secondary schools are required to register with UNEB to be able to submit the continuous assessment scores of their learners.

The Ministry of Education (MOES) through the National Curriculum Development Center (NCDC) rolled out the revised lower secondary school curriculum in 2020, which is based on Continuous Assessment/School-based assessment.

According to Peter Wakabi Waiswa, the director for technology and reprographics UNEB, secondary schools which will not have registered for continuous assessment will not be allowed by UNEB to register their learners for Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) examinations.

“UNEB is required to uniquely identify learners during the process of Continuous Assessment, necessitating learners to have National Identification Numbers (NIN)”, he added.

The National Identification and Registration Authority (NIRA) is prioritising registering and issuing (NINs) to all learners countrywide this holiday in order to facilitate the process of uniquely identifying learners.

“Learners in secondary schools are therefore encouraged to maximise this holiday to know their NIN registration status by visiting Boma grounds or nearest NIRA offices”, Waiswa said.

UNEB will communicate to the schools on modalities of submitting the CA scores to the board. Schools without UNEB centre numbers shall be required to apply for Continuous Assessment (CA) centre numbers through UNEB e-service portal.
