Senior one selection ends today

Senior one selection continues for the second day at Wonder World amusement park in Kansanga.

At the end of the day, students and parents will be able to tell if they have managed to secure positions in secondary school or not.

The ministry of education had the points raised and this is bad news to the pupils who failed to make it to the first division.

Most schools have put their cut off points at 5 and 6 though schools under the universal secondary education have stretched up to 28 points.

The head teachers who turned up for the selection have described the exercise as good, and is conducted in a better, spacious place.

Meanwhile, the ministry of education has appealed to school head teachers to reserve vacancies for students whose exams were withheld.

A total of 1,040 candidates’ results were withheld over suspected involvement in examination malpractice.

UNEB set a period of one month to decide the fate of the 64 schools whose exam results were withheld as investigations continue.

The director basic secondary education at the ministry of education Dr Yusuf Nsubuga says as UNEB handles the matter, the pupils should not be victimized.
