Best performing 400 schools in science subjects

KAMPALA – An analysis of the recently released 2020 Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) examination results shows that Seeta High School in Mukono topped the list of schools with the highest number of students scoring maximum marks in the four General Science subjects including Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Mathematics.

The students also registered a staggering performance in general science with 100%.

St. Mary’s  High School, Lukaya, St.Henrys College, Kitovu, St. Marys College, Kisubi, St. Josephs  SS, Naggalama, St.Marys Girls College, Aboke, Seeta High School Green Campus, Mukono, Bp. Cipriano Kihangire SS, Uganda Martyrs SS, Namugongo and Bukalasa Minor Seminary in Kalungu followed in that order.

Getting a maximum aggregate score or close is an indicator that the school and students demonstrated high levels of knowledge and skills in the subjects they sat, according to Uneb.

This website looked closely at the performance of each school based on the number of students obtaining distinction one in General Science subjects: Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Mathematics.

The exam results confirmed that the country is struggling to get more students to pass science subjects.

Nearly half of the students who sat for the UCE exams failed Physics and Chemistry papers. Results released on Friday, July 30, by the Uganda National Examinations Board indicate that at least 166,530, Out of the 333,060 students who sat for the 2020 examinations, scored F9 in both subjects.

According to the Uganda National Education Board (UNEB) Executive Secretary Dan Odongo, although there has been an overall improved performance in a number of subjects, there is still a challenge in overall pass levels for science subjects.

Odongo points out that more students still find difficulty in handling the apparatus during practical tests as well as marking and recording observations among other challenges.
