Mr. Odong told uncoveredug news reporters that “female candidates performed better than males in English. In the other subjects, males performed better, with the differences being very significant in history, geography, the sciences, and commerce. In Chemistry, however, the male candidates show better performance in the higher grades, but, overall, a slightly higher percentage of females obtained at least a pass. This trend in the disparity in the performance of male and female candidates has been observed over the years”.

Furthermore, on reduced cases of exam malpractice, Odong said, “Cases of examination malpractice have reduced. Most of those reported for this exam were given external assistance in the examination rooms, affecting mostly physics and chemistry practicals as well as mathematics. The affected schools will be notified through their portals.”

The examination body also observed that candidature increased by 15,008 (4.3%) from 349,459 in 2022 to 364,469 in 2023.

In conclusion, UNEB Executive Director Mr. Dan Odongo noted that the girls performed better than boys in the English language.
