Pregnant candidates

Odongo urged headteachers not to deny pregnant candidates an opportunity to sit their final examinations this year as there is no law or written policy that bars girls from sitting exams while pregnant.

In any case, if a girl is pregnant she can be given a special room and watched over while writing her papers, once she completes her examination, she can be escorted out of the school and brought in when on another paper.

“You may lock out this girl from such a crucial examination without knowing what lies ahead of her in case she excels. Let’s give them a chance as parents and teachers continue to sensitize girls on the effects of early pregnancies.”


UNEB has assured the public that its fully prepared and committed to conduct a valid, reliable, equitable and quality assessment of learners’ achievements professionally and innovatively as stipulated within the regulations and policies of UNEB.

More so UNEB has warned all those who intend to engage in examination malpractices that it has the resources and will resolve to tenaciously pursue anyone who will be associated with examination malpractice, be it teachers, supervisors, security officers or any other person.
