Three senior six candidates of Bukalasi Secondary School in Bududa district failed to show up on Monday, 21st November, 2022 for their Economics paper on day one of the Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education Examinations (UACE).

The Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) began conducting UACE for all A’ level candidates beginning with Economics Papers one and two for Arts candidates and Chemistry paper 3 for Science Candidates.

Bukalasi Secondary School registered ten students for UACE, three of them offering Economics.

 However, none of the three candidates showed up on Monday for both papers. Our reporter visited the school and spotted the supervisor who was sitting in the examination room waiting for the time to elapse without any candidates.

The head teacher, Christopher Katumba declined to comment about the missing candidates and only said that the Exams were going on well.

The Area UNEB Supervisor, Edward Mukhwana said that he would write to UNEB about the incident.
