What is UACE?
In Uganda, the Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) is awarded to students upon completion of the two-year upper secondary school. This certification is equivalent to the General Certificate of Education Advanced Level (GCE A-Level) in other countries. The examinations for the UACE are administered by the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB).

“The females who got three principal passes are 48.6% compared to 40.1% for males.”– Said Mr Dan Odongo, UNEB Secretary.
At the minimum two principal levels required for university admission, 67,815 (70.3%) qualify. Additionally, results released by the office of the Prime Minister (OPM) indicate that “the overall candidates’ performance in the 2022 UACE examinations registered a very high percentage of candidates (99.2%) who qualified for the award of the UACE.
“In cases where one principal and two subsidiary pass levels are considered for admission to other tertiary institutions, 89.3% of the candidates will qualify,”-Said Mr Dan Odongo, Executive Secretary UNEB.
