The Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) has extended the normal registration for 2023 examinations to June 07, 2023, in order to accommodate more candidates who had not registered before the initial deadline of 31, May 2023 elapsed.

“Beyond July 31, schools will not be able to register any candidates. Schools also have until July 31, to make amendments to the submitted data without any surcharge. Schools should contact UNEB via eRegPrimary@uneb.ac.ug; or eRegSecondary@uneb.ac.ug for the PLE, UCE and UACE corrections respectively,” he explained.
