Uganda Business and Technical Examinations Board (UBTEB) conducted a training of technical and vocational registrars on the Examination Information Management System.

However, Dr. Nahamya Wilfred, UBTEB Deputy Executive Secretary, revealed that the training was aimed at equipping staff involved in examinations, registration of students, and uploading of marks.

“We took them through our Examination Information Management System because it went automated. Students now register online and pay online using school pay, but a number of them are finding challenges; you find marks are wrongly uploaded, registration is not well done, and at the end of the day, it affects other processes in terms of capturing marks and producing transcripts.”

Furthermore, he noted that they are mainly challenged by private institutions because they change staff often.

Ms. Begumisa Generous, ICT Officer in charge of the programs and new system at UBTEB, noted that the training was the second of its kind since the development of the system.

According to her, the Central and Western regions recorded the highest number of trainees, with over 70 trainees from each of them attending the three-day training.

“We registered a big turnout, but some centers were not represented, and others delegated the wrong staff. You find a principal or director coming for a training; he isn’t one who sits on the system, but he comes for the training,” she noted, revealing that they registered about 92% turn up.

Begumisa said that a few centers that missed will get help online because “we shall be having Zoom trainings like two a month.”

In conclusion, according to the feedback, Begumisa noted that the training was successful. “Most of the things that were defeating them are now okay. We had areas where the submission of coursework was not easy for most registrars.”
