The landscape of academic excellence in Uganda has been vividly illustrated in the recently released Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE) results of 2023. We have witnessed a remarkable display of scholastic achievement, particularly from Hormisdallen Primary School, Gayaza, which has set a new benchmark in educational prowess.

A Glimpse at the National Picture

At the national level, the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) reported a registration of 749,254 candidates from 15,859 schools for the PLE in 2023, a slight decline from 832,654 in 2022.

In a significant revelation, Hillside Primary School, Kira, outshone others with 99 pupils scoring Aggregate 4, followed by Hormisdallen Day School, Kampala (46), Mother Majeri Primary School, Kira (38), and Hormisdallen Primary School, Gayaza with 35 candidates.

Towards a Future Free of Malpractices

Amidst these successes, UNEB has emphasized the need for a specialized court to address examination malpractices. The new Board Chairperson, Professor Celestino Obua, highlighted the challenges in the current system, including high costs and delays in case handling. He advocates for a specialized court dedicated to these cases, ensuring more effective and expedited resolutions.

The PLE results of 2023 are not just numbers; they represent the dreams, hard work, and potential of Uganda’s future. The schools that have excelled set an inspiring example for others to follow. As we celebrate these achievements, we also acknowledge the ongoing efforts to uphold the integrity of Uganda’s education system. The future looks bright for Uganda’s young scholars, and the nation’s commitment to academic excellence and fairness in assessments shines through these results.
