PLE 2023 Results Overview:

On January 25, 2024, UNEB Executive Director Dan Odongo unveiled the PLE 2023 results at State House Nakasero. Odongo highlighted a higher proportion of candidates passing in Division 3 and above, with notable performance in Science and Mathematics. The overall performance was deemed comparable to that of 2022. However, Division U (Ungraded) raised concerns, with 10.4% of candidates falling into this category. Odongo emphasized the need to address this issue to prevent contributing to school dropout statistics, particularly in districts with percentages exceeding the national average.

In 2023, 749,254 candidates registered from 15,859 centers, a decline from 832,654 in 2022. Of these, 66.9% were Universal Primary Education (UPE) beneficiaries, and 33.1% were Non-UPE candidates. Males exhibited a higher proportional performance, with more boys achieving Division One compared to girls. Girls, however, outperformed boys in English, while boys outshone girls in SST, Science, and Mathematics.

Uganda Prison registered 69 candidates, with 60 candidates sitting for the exam. Notably, 2 passed in Division 1, 32 obtained Division 2, 15 achieved Division 3, 5 secured Division 4, and 6 were ungraded. Additionally, 9 candidates did not sit for the exam.
